Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

    Directions

    Even though it does not snow in Florida, I think of cold white days when the holidays approach. I grew up in Germany and loved watching the snow flakes pass by my window in the winter.

    Well enough about that…here is my gluten free and decadent chocolate cake! I’m using almond flour for structure and that nutty bite. It’s still a moist cake and I recommend adding good quality, dark chocolate chips as well.

    Steps

    1

    Make The Cake Batter

    Preheat your oven to 350F.

    In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder and hot water until it looks like melted chocolate.

    In a large bowl, whisk together 3 whole eggs and the oil. I recommend sunflower seed or grape seed oil. Whisk using a regular or electric mixer until pale and frothy (see image).

    Next, add the sugar and vanilla and whisk to combine. Now add the chocolate mixture and whisk to combine.

    Add the almond flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Since there is no gluten you can mix until your arm falls off! Be sure the batter is clump free. Lastly, add the chocolate chip and whisk once more.

    Prepare Your Cake Tin

    I highly recommend using a spring for for easy removal. This cake is thin but very rich.

    Lightly grease the bottom and sides of your tin with oil and line the bottom with parchment paper then dust with a little cocoa powder and tap off any excess.

    Pour the batter into your tin and if needed, move the chocolate chips around to spread them evenly throughout the batter.

    Bake The Cake

    To ensure even baking as well as prevent any possible leakage, wrap some aluminum foil around the spring form. Bake the cake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly dry.

    Allow the cake to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes then using a butter knife, go around the edges before loosing the spring form.

    Decorate The Cake

    Once the spring form has been removed, allow the cake to cool for another 10 minutes then dust with powdered sugar and the zest of 1 orange.
