Cherry Chocolate Cake

gluten-free cherry chocolate cake
This is a delicious and easy cake that my family loves. I have used Bette Hagman's and Carol Fenster's flour mixes in this, and they both turn out well. I'm sure other mixes would work well also. I found this recipe on the celiac listserve, posted by Shelly Thompson.

1 3/4 c. gluten-free flour mix
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
21 oz. cherry pie filling (check labels, I have used Comstock)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
1 c. boiling water (hold back 2 Tb.)

Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the eggs, pie filling, and extracts. Add the boiling water, mixing gently. Pour into a greased (sprayed) 9 x 13 inch pan or two 9 inch round pans.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing.

For every-day eating, I top it with powdered sugar. The almond extract adds a very nice touch to this cake, but I imagine it would be good without it. Make sure you do add vanilla, though. I tend to always use a little less water than called for in recipes. Maybe it has to do with where I live. You'll have to see what works best for you.

Enjoy! And let me know how you like it!
