Flourless Chocolate Cake

Share

A friend of mine is allergic to gluten. I tried my best not having to invite her over seeing that almost everything I cook & serve contains some sort of gluten. Once I realized that a gluten-free diet contains a large range of food I wasn’t that worried about it. Meat, Rice, Vegetables…oh but wait, dessert?! I did not want to serve fruit & ice cream, I wanted to bake. So I tried baking this flourless chocolate cake.

Delicious Rating: Very easy recipe to make. You basically throw all the ingredients in a blender and bake. The finished result? I didn’t care for the texture of the cake. It is smooth and rich but almost slimy. When cooled longer it did firm up but still did not please my palate. My friend thought it was great but I suppose if you haven’t eaten cake made with gluten in years than anything might be good. Will I make it again? Not unless my company is on a gluten free diet!

Nowadays, there are so many brands coming out with flour substitutes that cake recipes like this may become obsolete in the gluten-free community.

The finished look reminded me of brownies but they were a lot more softer than an actually brownies.

Enjoy!
