The last few years I have asked for a birthday pie instead of a cake. My mom makes the best pies!! We use the gluten free pantry's pie crust mix and then I request either butterscotch or lemon for the filling (recipe in the better homes and gardens cookbook). SOooooo good!! Much better than a cake :)

I've made this a couple of times and it turns out really well. I liked it better with the flour blend below; with the Bette Hagman featherlight mix I thought it was a bit gritty or grainy tasting. My little fella will be taking one of these cupcakes with him on Sunday to a friend's birthday. I should note that my in-laws didn't know it was gluten-free when they tried it. They were both surprised at how similar it tasted to an all-purpose flour cake.

Gluten Free Wacky Cake

1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour mix

1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1 cup sugar

3 tbsp cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp vinegar

6 tbsp oil (I used canola)

1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt.

Make three "wells" in the flour mixture. In the first well, put vanilla, in the second the vinegar, and in the third the oil.

Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir until moistened.

Pour into an 8x8 pan.

Bake at 350 until it springs back when touched lightly...about 30 min.

I also added about 1/4 cup applesauce for added moistness.

Carol Fenster's Sorghum Corn flour Blend

makes 4 1/2 cups

1 1/2 cups sorghum flour

1 1/2 cups potato starch OR corn starch

1 cup tapioca starch (flour)

1/2 cup corn flour

I like a homemade Flourless chocolate Torte. Google the recipes for them and you'll get 1000's to choose from. You can add any flavoring you like... I've made it with raspberry flavor, orange flavor, mint *didn't like mint, Coffee flavor, Kaluha flavor, You can figure out your favorite. They are easy enough to make and so varied.
