When I saw this recipe, I can’t remember where, I knew I had to try and convert to GF.  It is super quick and easy and it has no eggs.  Also, they were saying that you make it all in the pan.  For GF I knew this wouldn’t be the best because you really want to make sure you incorporate your xanthan into the flour.  I did mix it in the pan, that’s why the pan looks kind of messy.  Another positive for this recipe is it’s small, so not too many leftovers to tempt you.

1 1/2 cups GF White Flour
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (IF your blend doesn’t have it.)
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 Tablespoons oil (I used light olive oil)

1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly grease an 8X8 baking pan.

Mix the first seven ingredients together in a bowl whisk to incorporate ingredients.
Pour into prepared pan.  Make three wells in the flour mixture, two smaller and one larger.  Put vinegar in one small well, vanilla in the other small well and the oil in the larger well.  Pour the water over all of it and mix well until smooth.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

This was amazing just hot out of the oven with a little butter.  I thought that it would be amazing with Marshmallow Icing…..I thought I’d post a recipe for this but can’t find it.  Will try and post it soon.  But, once cool,  top it with your favorite icing or ice cream or dust with powdered sugar.  The possibilities are endless.
