This gluten-free mocha cake recipe was a runner-up in the So Delicious Dairy Free Recipe Contest (view all recipe entries here)! It was created and submitted by Sarah Bakes Gluten Free. It has a decadent dairy-free and vegan coffee buttercream along with a layer of vegan chocolate ganache. The entire recipe is gluten-free, vegan (dairy-free and egg-free), soy-free, nut-free, and generally allergy-friendly!

Gluten-Free Mocha Cake with Vegan Coffee Buttercream

Sarah uses her own homemade gluten-free flour blend (see the link in the recipe below) in this gluten-free mocha cake, but you can use a store-bought gluten-free flour blend or your own favorite homemade version, as desired. Just note that Sarah does use xanthan gum in her mix, so you will want to use a mix with xanthan or guar gum already in it, or add some as a separate ingredient (about 1 teaspoon in this recipe to equate her flour blend) to get similar results. Also, I recommend leaning toward a rice flour, brown rice flour, or sorghum flour blend with starches to yield the most dessert-like results.
