Classic Chocolate Cake - Sarah bakes again

My friend Sarah is some kind of super mom. She has turned baking gluten-free birthday cakes into an art and a blessing for her children. She bakes yellow and chocolate cakes and gets very creative with her decorations. Here is the Classic Chocolate Cake recipe she uses and I will post the yellow cake tomorrow. David and Clara's cakes are so creative!

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. xanthan gum
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 c. oil
