Gluten Free Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and Raspberries

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake
I am posting a delicious gluten free chocolate cake recipe in honor of National Chocolate Cake Day. I never knew there was a National Chocolate Cake Day until I saw it this morning on Good Morning America. How could I miss such an important day? This is chocolate cake we are talking about!!!

One of my daughters is gluten free so I like to make some goodies that she can eat. I like to use the King Arthur Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Mix because not only does it make life easier, it makes a good cake! It can be difficult to get a nice texture with baked goods using gluten free flour. This mix works well. No one will even know this is a gluten free cake!


I happen to be a chocolate icing fan. If you are not, this cake looks fabulous sprinkled with powdered sugar.

I like to add fresh raspberries on top of this cake. Raspberries and chocolate are just yummy together and the raspberries make it the perfect romantic cake for Valentine's Day.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

I use soymilk in this recipe to make it dairy free. You can use regular milk instead if you wish.

1 cup King Arthur Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup vanilla soymilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 1 1/2-inch round baking pan. I like to cut a circle of parchment paper and line the bottom of the pan to make sure the cake doesn't stick.


In a large bowl combine baking mix, sugar and cocoa. Add oil, soymilk and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer on low until just combined. Mix on medium for 2 minutes. Add 1 egg and mix until combined. Add the second egg, mix until combined, then mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.


Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool cake on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and cool on wire rack.

Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting
You can adjust the amount of cocoa you use to your chocolate loving level. Also, I used soy milk but you can use regular milk.

3 tablespoons butter, softened

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup confectioner's sugar
dash of salt
2 tablespoons vanilla soymilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream the butter with an electric mixer.  Turn the mixer off. Add cocoa and confectioner's sugar. Mix on low. Drizzle in the vanilla and the soymilk. Mix on high for 5 minutes until frosting is light and fluffy.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for good...surgery. It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
