Mocha Cake

Today is Caleb's birthday, so I made him cupcakes from scratch. This tastes just like a box cake and uses normal  ingredients. It is From Our Country Kitchen Cookbook put out by Rehoboth Christian School I use this cookbook for so many recipes. I will put up a carrot cake recipe sometime. It's delicious too!

Mocha Cake
2 cups flour (*I use sorghum blend)
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup butter softened
2 tsp. instant coffee
2/3 cup cocoa 
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups water
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

preheat oven to 350. grease two muffin tins or two 9" round cake pans 
mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl. add water, eggs and vanilla and beat for 4 mins. on high speed. pour into pans/tins and bake for 30 mins for a cake or 20 mins for cupcakes (or until a toothpick comes out clean) makes almost 2 doz.

*sorghum blend (1.5cups sorghum flour, 1.5 cups potato starch flour, 1 cup tapioca flour - whisk together and store in airtight container)
