Today is my youngest’s son birthday, yesterday I decided to make a chocolate birthday cake
This recipe is very simple and easy to make!
175g unsalted butter (leave out at room temperature)
190g Dextrose or 175g Sugar
175g gluten free SR flour (I used Doves Farm)
25g cacao powder ( I used Bon Pom ) or cocoa powder gluten free
1 1/2 tsp GF baking powder
A little milk if needed
2 x 7 in prepared lined Tins
Pre heat oven 180c
Cream fat and sugar together
Add beaten eggs
Add flour, baking powder and cacao
If the cake mixture feels a little too thick and a splash of dairy or non dairy milk
When completely mixed together spoon in to cake tins
pop in the oven for 25 mins
remove from oven and turn out onto wire rack
Once cooled add filling
I used a butter icing inside the cake but to keep it low sugar use extra thick double cream
I used Cadburys large chocolate buttons to decorate
The cake went down very well with the family, I will definitely make it again.
