This moist chocolate cake has quickly become one of my favorites. I love to pair it with cream cheese frosting.



1 1/2 cups Gluten-free flour (I prefer King Arthurs GF Flour for this cake)
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Cacao powder
2 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Sea Salt
2/3 cup Avocado Oil
4 large Eggs
1 1/3 cups Water
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9-inch round baking pans.

Mix oil, eggs, water and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Mix flour, sugar, cacao, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. 

Pour flour mixture into batter 1/2 cup at a time until combined. Once all ingredients have been added blend on medium-high speed until a smooth batter forms.

Pour batter into the two 9 inch pans and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

Remove cake from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pans and allow to cool completely before icing.
