  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup sorghum flour, the remaining flours, the cocoa, xanthan gum, guar gum, baking powder, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt with whisk; set aside. In large bowl, beat oil, coffee, eggs, granulated sugar, vinegar and 2 teaspoons vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until frothy. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on medium speed until well blended. Divide batter evenly between pans.
  • 3
    Bake 40 to 42 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling racks 30 minutes. Remove cakes from pans to cooling racks; cool completely, about 30 minutes.

    In medium bowl, beat ghee, vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon salt with electric mixer on medium speed. Gradually add powdered sugar and milk, beating until thickened. Beat 4 minutes longer or until frosting is fluffy. On serving plate, place 1 cake layer; spread with frosting. Top with second cake layer; spread frosting over top and side of cake.

Expert Tips

  • Coffee brings out the taste of chocolate, and brewed coffee is the secret ingredient in this cake. If you prefer, you can substitute 1 cup of water or, better yet, sparkling water.
  • Garbanzo bean flour adds fiber to a gluten-free diet; one serving of the cake is a good source of fiber.
  • Vinegar in a cake? In gluten free baking, we need all the help we can get to end up with the highest-rising cake. The vinegar gives the baking powder a little “kick” and balances the flavors. Don’t worry, you won’t taste it!
