Chocolate cake for rainy days

On cold, wet, stay-at-home days, I want a cake that I can mix up quick, throw in the oven, carve a hunk off and eat in front of the telly.  This is that cake.  It’s not fancy, it’s a nice, simple nanna chocolate cake. I used a variety of gluten-free flours, the original receipe used regular self-raising flour.  Do as you will.

Gluten-free chocolate cake
Adapted from CWA Cakes

3/4 cup of almond meal
3/4 cup of brown rice flour
1/2 cup of gluten-free flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 tablespoons of cocoa
1 cup of raw sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of canola oil

Mix the dry ingredients together, you most likely should sift them, but I never bother.  Very Nigella of me. Add the wet ingredients and mix well for a minute or so.

Pour into a greased and lined baking tin, I used a square one to great success.  Bake at 180C for 40 minutes or so.  I find that cooling in the tin for 10 minutes is usually necessary for gluten-free cakes, or they fall apart.  Cut into a rough square and shove in your face.
