Yummy Gooey Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

It is time for some chocolate around here. Something warm and gooey is preferred. I am going to try a go at a
Gooey Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Better to feed the cravings right? My daughter and I are sore from working out, what better way to get comfort than from chocolate cake! Even though it is going against our exercising, I am making it. It is ok though, because I am doing 2 desserts each week. This is dessert one. It is really yummy, but serve it hot. Once it cools it is hard to get back the magic.

1 cup all-purpose flour ( I use gluten free all purpose flour blend)
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (omit if not using gluten free flour)

3/4 cup white sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups hot water

In a bowl, add flour, white sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Mix.
Add milk, oil, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

Spread the batter in an ungreased Pyrex dish.

In a separate bowl, add brown sugar and 4 tablespoons cocoa powder and mix.
Sprinkle this over your batter in the dish.
Pour hot water over everything in your dish but DO NOT stir.

Place your dish in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Prior to serving, Cut out square slices and place them in a dish and pour the syrup over them.
 Top off with whipped cream. You can also add berries.
Serve warm.
