My Grandma used to make this Crazy Cake every Saturday in the winter for the neighborhood card playing evening. We could always count on this cake to be Delicious! Super moist and Super YUM. We would always be seen begging for more than one piece.
I am listing the recipe in it’s original form, because all I do to make this cake GlutenFree is to substitute Pamela’s or my fake Pamela mix or even Sorghum flour & whatever starch and it still works! I am sure you can make it with your favorite flour as well.
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (or substitute your favorite GF flour mix)
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda –(no need if using Pamela’s)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon vinegar
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup cold water
In your 8×8 pan (or double it for a 9×13) … mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Make three wells in the flour mixture. In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil. Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir with a fork until moistened. Pop into the oven and Bake at 350°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it springs back when touched lightly.
Cool and frost if desired.
Grandma would sometimes just serve it with ice cream or drizzled with fresh sugared raspberries and a plop of whipped cream – mmmmmmmmm :)

I enjoy using Sorghum Four in many of my recipes and am always looking for new things to use it in. Recently, I found this little tidbit on Gluten free Gobsmacked. I just “puffy heart” Kate’s website. She has some awesome recipes and some deelish pics as well. I just know her soon-to-be, new little one is gonna enjoy eating what momma makes. Kate and her beloved are in the process of adopting a little cutie and we are all awaiting her arrival with anticipation.
Well, anyway, back to the recipe….
1 ½ cups sorghum flour
1 ½ cups potato starch or cornstarch
1 cup tapioca flour
½ cup corn flour or almond flour or bean flour or chestnut flour
