|Oat flour chocolate cake with marshmallows and cranberries.|
Oat flour has become our go-to flour (because there's not much rice flour left from the 50# bags). It's actually a pretty good flour (of course, be sure to use gluten-free oats if gluten-free). My sister, Suriyah, came across this chocolate cake recipe, using only oat flour, when searching for things to make with oat flour. If you have oats, you can make oat flour - just grind 'em up in a food processor, Vita-mix, blender, etc.

This is an awesome recipe. The oat flour makes it very moist, it rises fairly well, and doesn't fall. So easy and versatile, too.
The recipe did use a teaspoon of cinnamon, but that is optional. I typed up the basic recipe below.
Thanks, sis, for finding this great recipe!!
Oat Flour Chocolate Cake (Gluten, Dairy, Corn, Gum-free)
Adapted from Kitchen Therapy
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water or milk
6 tablespoons (1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon) cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups gluten-free oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 8-inch round baking pans, one 9x13-inch pan or a Bundt pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and beat until smooth. A whisk works well. Pour batter into prepared pans or pan.
3. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and remove from pans. Frost, if desired.
P.S. I plan to do some kind of Thanksgiving post sometime soon . . . maybe a menu or something. We'll see how busy the next few days are (hopefully I'll be able to bake a little more than the last few crazy days).
P.P.S. We won a Vita-Mix!!! For FREE! Crazy, I know. So, you'll probably see some Vita-Mix recipes soon. Yay!
