This cake was requested by my toddler for his 4th birthday so that's what he got! I haven't really baked with regular flour much these last 3 years so it's always a little scary getting into it again. But really it is SO MUCH easier than GF baking and it has been a great experience so far! I made this gluten version for the celebration because really I'm the only person who is GF (or trying to be!) and I wanted to bake a really amazing cake for the whole fam to show vegans can do everything! This cake was an absolute HIT for my entire family and will definitely be in the cake rotation from here on out. If you want a GLUTEN FREE cake I got you covered! I will add that recipe at the bottom too so you can enjoy all the chocolate goodness as well!
Also one note, you can either make a homemade refined sugar free frosting that I'll give you here OR just use your favorite store bought vanilla frosting with 1-2 cups peanut butter whipped in! Both ways produce an amazing frosting!
You can also sub out the peanut butter if you have allergies for SUN BUTTER! It really is a great replacement I use most of the time since my oldest has a peanut allergy. Any nut butter will work however.
Let me know if you make this and how it goes!

HAPPY RECIPE SEARCHING!
Here you will find recipes either created by me or from ones I have found and changed up to my liking. I try to use ingredients that are usually 95% organic (lessen that toxic load!), very little unrefined sugars used and the majority of these are GLUTEN FREE. We eat legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, grass fed organic meats, pasture raised eggs, very small amounts of organic dairy, and lots of fruits and veggies! You can always change up the recipes to fit your lifestyle or taste buds! Thanks for supporting me and my art through food!
