Rich Chocolate Cake (flourless)

By PaisleyJade - Monday, February 12, 2018

I love chocolate, and I love cake... but I also love making food that my gluten free family members can enjoy.

Below is a recent creation (adapted from a few fav recipes) that was rich, delicious and gluten free!


250 grams butter
1 block of dark Whittakers chocolate (equivalent to around 225 or 250 grams)
1.5 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa plus extra for dusting afterwards
6 eggs

Heat oven to moderate temperature and prepare a cake tin by greasing entire tin and lining base.  Melt chocolate and butter together, mix thoroughly and once smooth whisk in sugar, then eggs (one at a time), mixing well after each egg.  Add sifted cocoa powder and whisk well.

Pour batter into baking tin and bake 35-40 minutes (or until a skewer comes out with moist crumbs).

Cool cake before removing from pan, once removed, leave to cool completely and set.  Serve dusted with cocoa powder (delicious with whipped or pouring cream!).
