Gluten free, milk free and egg free. Appropriate for Teachers and explorers, maybe others.

  • 1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup teff flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Rice Flour (AKA sticky rice, glutinous rice or mochiko, available at asian markets and health food stores)
  • 2 Tablespoons ground chia seeds (or flax seeds)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons [baking powder Recipes]
  • 1/4 Cup carob powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee (or coconut oil)
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger (this isn't enough to give it a ginger flavor, but rounds out the other flavors a bit)
How to make it:
  1. Heat oven to 350 Degrees F.
  2. Oil a cake pan or cupcake pan.
  3. Combine dry ingredients (blend teff and carob together in a powerful blender if either of them is not already ground), mix well.
  4. Combine wet ingredients, blend in a blender to work in some air and improve rising and texture.
  5. Combine wit ingredients with dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  6. Bake until the center springs back to the touch and the cake has set in the middle.
    Roughly 5 minutes for a cake and 20 minutes for 9 cupcakes.
