You can have your cake and eat it to!
Gluten free recipes don’t have to be bland and boring, this is super quick and super easy to make, this kid friendly and teenager friendly yes teenage approved gluten free chocolate cake is a winner. Got visitors coming and nothing in the cupboard you can whip this up in no time, make two and store one in the freezer for lunch boxes.
This recipe is adapted from my everyday thermomix cook book to make it a gluten free recipe. How I love my thermomix its the best piece of equipment that I have ever invested in for the kitchen. I know they have a hefty price tag but honestly you get ten different appliances in the one machine and I use mine everyday, plus it pays for itself over twelve months. It is a habit you have to get into when I first got mine after the novelty started wearing off I went back to my old habitual ways then I just started using it everyday and that was nearly four years ago and I wouldn’t be without it. I don’t have any affiliates with the company and I am not a consultant they are just an awesome piece of equipment, ok enough said about that.
Is there anyone that doesn’t like chocolate cake? I cant imagine there would be too many people that don’t, there’s no sugar in this one either so its even more guilt free! I dont put any icing on mine as I dont think it needs it although you could melt a block of 85% dark chocolate and drizzle it over the top, I can just picture this in my head maybe I could have made it that way instead oh well never mind.
This works well in any shape tin, the loaf tin probably works the best though, you could also make these into muffins instead, its a very versatile gluten free recipe.
I use raw cacao in all of my chocolate recipes, did you know that cacao was worth more than gold once upon a time and I totally get that I think chocolate is better than gold and much more luxurious. Anyway cacao has many more health benefits for you than cocoa as its raw hasn’t been heated like cocoa has so it retains all of its nutrients, some of the longest living people eat real chocolate everyday. See chocolate is good for you as long as its the real kind and not the store bought mars bars or snickers variety, sorry to break that bad news to you if you didn’t already know. 🙂
There’s actually no dark chocolate used in this recipe unless you decide to go for the melted drizzle over the top option!! Thanks for reading.
