This cake is awesome as it is both dairy free and gluten free which is what my life and health requires. It does utilize a mix but honestly in my opinion it is awesome!
Deliciously Deceptive Chocolate Cake
1 package of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix
1/2 cup softened dairy free buttery spread
1 cup rice milk (I used vanilla flavored)
1 tbs lemon juice
2 large eggs
1/3 cup hot water
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Generously grease 2 8 inch cake pans.
In a large bowl begin by creaming the butter.
Add the cake mix, rice milk, lemon juice and eggs.
Mix for about 2 minutes total.
Add the hot water and vanilla.
Mix for another minute.
Add the cake batter to the 2 pans.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until done.
Take out of the oven and let cool about 15 minutes in the pan then remove from the pans and let cool entirely on a wire rack.
This cake is awesome just dusted with powdered sugar, but is decadent when frosted with dairy free chocolate buttercream frosting!
