  • 1 ½ cups Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt I use sea salt
  • 6 *heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup vegetable or canola oil
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup orange juice


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8” or 9” circle or square cake pan with cooking spray. I like to grease a non-stick pan with oil & line with a parchment paper circle. Set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten free baking flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder & salt. Sift in the cocoa powder if it’s clumpy; if not clumpy, mix right in! 
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients using a mixing spoon and pour in the eggs, oil, water & orange juice. 
  • Whisk ingredients together until a chocolatey cake batter forms. 
  • Transfer the cake batter to the greased pan and spread evenly. 
  • Bake in the center rack of the oven for 50-60 minutes. A toothpick should come out mostly clean from the center (keep in mind the melted chocolate chunks may make the toothpick somewhat wet when testing the cake). 
  • Allow the cake to cool for 15 minutes before flipping onto a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.


  • Heaping tablespoon mean that each tablespoon should be mounded and not measured exact.
  • This recipe will fit an 8" or 9" circle or square pan, a classic bundt pan, 12 muffins, or 24 mini muffins. Of course, baking times will vary depending on the size of the cake/muffins.
  • If you don't have orange juice, feel free to swap for a plant-based milk such as almond milk or oat milk!
