2 cups brown rice flour

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup COLD water (3/4 cup of water plus ice cubes)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp molasses
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp red food coloring

Add cold water, vegetable oil, molasses and red dye in a bowl. Whisk until well mixed.

Sift dry ingredients.

Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix well. Do not overmix.

Add vinegar right before placing into a 8 x 8" pan. I use an ungreased glass dish.

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes.

If desired, frost after completely cooled.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

This sounds great! I plan to try this this weekend for Easter, but I would sub the vegetable oil since my LO is allergic to soy. A lot of vegetable oils are made of soybean oil. Just gotta check everything! :)
