Eggless, Gluten Free Honey Cake Using Buckwheat and Coconut Milk Recipe. Originally posted here: http://elrasbaking.blogspot.com/2012/09/vegan-gluten-free-honey-cake-using.html?showComment=1346864585541
Ingredients
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamoms
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 ℉.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mixed together the following dry ingredients: buckwheat flour, tapioca flour, rice flour, cinnamon, ginger, cardamoms, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Mix using a hand whisk. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl add honey (or maple sugar), turbinado sugar, brown sugar, coconut milk, canola oil, and brown rice vinegar. Using a hand whisk, mix until well blend.
  4. Pour this mixture into flour mixture, mix just enough to blend the ingredients together.
  5. Spoon into prepared cup cake paper molds.
  6. Bake in the middle rack for 15 to 20 minutes (depending the size of mold you are using). Or, until cake tester inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs cling to it.
  7. Remove from oven, and cool for a two minutes in the molds, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Just before serving, drenched the cooled cake into cinnamon sugar if desire.

 

As you can probably guess, I would use coconut oil instead of the canola oil.

Also, I agree with the author that coconut milk is the best (Almond milk is also good, but unfortunately, I am allergic to almonds!! 🙁 )
