Our Notes

This cake makes a lovely treat for any occasion.


119g/4oz Pure GF Brown Rice Flour
119g/4oz Pure GF White Rice Flour
237g/8oz Caster Sugar
65g/2oz Pure GF Luxury Cocoa Powder
7g Pure GF Baking Powder
5g Pure GF Bicarbonate of Soda
Pinch of salt
120ml Milk
115ml Boiling Water
60ml Vegetable Oil
1 egg
Few drops of Vanilla Essence


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare two 9 inch cake pans by spraying with baking spray or buttering and lightly flouring.
  2. Add flours, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, bicarb of soda and salt to a large bowl. Whisk through using your paddle instrument (if using a mixing machine) or mix well with a spoon until all mixture is combined well.
  3. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla flavour (or essence) to the flour mixture and mix together on medium speed (if using mixing machine) or by using a wooden spoon until well combined. Reduce speed and carefully add boiling water to the cake batter. Beat on a high speed for about 1 minute to add air to the batter.
  4. Distribute cake batter evenly between both cake tins. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow cooling for approx. 10 minutes. Remove from the pans and allow cooling completely.
  6. Decorate the chocolate cake to your preferred liking. We suggest using a chocolate flavoured buttercream.
