The easiest way to make The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake with a special everyday ingredient that makes it moist and so delicious!!
Ok ..... I can't rave about this Gluten Free Chocolate Cake enough! It really is The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake!!
This cake is moist, full of chocolate flavour, only uses one bowl for the cake mixture (love that) and so easy to make...
only 5 really easy steps!
After a little experimenting I have created the gluten free chocolate cake that you can whip up quickly when friends or family are coming around or you need to take it for a get together. It doesn't take long to cook (no waiting around for 50 minutes for this to cook ...only 25 minutes!) AND it stays moist! Yes, I know that gluten free cakes often don't taste as great the next day...but this one does!! 🙂
So what is the 'special everyday ingredient' I hear you ask??
1 cup of black coffee
(I used a decaffeinated one but you could use whatever flavour or strength of coffee you like.)
The coffee gives the gluten free chocolate cake a full-bodied flavour - without the taste of coffee!
(If you would like a stronger taste of coffee in the cake, simply use a stronger coffee.)
This gluten free cake recipe uses coconut flour and some almond meal/flour - so no need to worry about gluten free flour mixes. It is topped with whipped cream with a hint of honey that just goes so well with this chocolate cake.
So here are the easy 5 steps!
The Easy Steps to The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe!
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and line a square cake tin with baking paper.
Add to a bowl and whisk!
- 5 eggs
- ½ cup of olive oil
- 1 cup of caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
Then add the following to the bowl with egg mixture and mix together.
- 1 cup of coconut flour (less 2 tablespoons)
- 2 tablespoons of almond meal/flour
- ½ cup of cocoa powder
- ¾ teaspoon of baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon gluten free baking powder
- 1 cup of black coffee
...and mix together till smooth.
- Pour into the cake tin and bake in the oven for 25 mins or until a toothpick or cake tester is inserted and it comes out clean. Remove the cake from the tin and leave to cool on a cake rack.
- While the cake is cooling, add the cream and honey to a electric mixer and whip the cream until it is thick and fluffy.
- Smooth the cream over the cake and sprinkle over the grated chocolate ....delicious!
Oh! just so good!
This cake definitely deserves the title of The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake!
PS - I keep my cake in a airtight container in the fridge for it to stay moist and delicious!! (...if there is any left!)
