  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/3 cup almond flour (I've used corn flour here too, and it worked just as well)
  • 1/2 white rice flour
  • 1/2 quinoa flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, whip up the soy milk, oil, sugar and extracts. When they are combined, add the tapioca flour and flax seed. Mix vigorously for about a minute (make sure the tapioca flour is dissolved!)

Add the almond or corn flower, white rice flour, quinoa flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt all together in a smaller bowl. Whisk to really evenly distribute everything. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet and mix with an electric mixer on high for about 2 minutes. (You've really got to mix well - don't worry about overmixing because, hey, there's no gluten!)

Fill your well-greased cake pan and place in the oven. Bake until your knife comes out clean, about 35/40 minutes (warning: my oven is a bit wonky, so this time may be waaaay more. I've got to get a damn oven thermometer). Cool and cover with your favourite vegan icing.
