Chocolate Crazy Cake

Ingredients:

360 grams Otto's Cassava Flour (or 3 cups well sifted before measuring) 
2 cups maple sugar
1 teaspoon salt (we love Redmond Real Salt )
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup Primal Kitchen Foods avocado oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups cold water
frosting
1 cup organic, non-hydrogenated shortening
½ cup ghee
½ cup maple syrup
1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder

 

Process:

1. Whisk or sift flour, sugar, salt, soda, and cocoa together into a large bowl. 
2. Make three wells. Pour oil into one well, vinegar into second, and vanilla into third well. 
3. Pour cold water over all, and stir well with fork. 
4. Pour into a 9x14 baking pan or two 8" round pans. 
I have not found it necessary to grease the pan. 
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted comes out clean. Frost with your favorite icing. Ours is listed above, simply combine all ingredients in a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until light and fluffy!
