Chocolate Birthday Cake
The originator of the famous Wacky Cake (cake recipe which doesn't use eggs) is unknown. This version is adapted for those who are also allergic to wheat.

  • 1 cup barley flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients and blend very well. Put batter into a 9" pan (square or circle). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. For a birthday cake, double the recipe (making two square or circle shapes) and put frosting in between and on top.
