This gluten free chocolate cake recipe is one of the easiest chocolate cake recipes I know, and it only takes around 20 minutes to cook.  

It is also one of the healthiest because rather than just being gluten free it is also wheat and dairy free, no refined sugars and filled with fibre from nuts and seeds.  

Use this as a base, and double or triple the quantities to create a bigger birthday or celebration cake.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup of ground almonds

1 cup of ground flaxseed

1/2 cup organic cocoa

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup of water

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tbsp honey

3 free range eggs beaten

pinch of salt

1 tsp organic vanilla essence

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 C.

This is yet another throw everything together and mix well recipes.  It doesn’t matter what goes in first as long as it is mixed well and eggs are beaten first.  Pour into a lined cake tin and cook for 18-22 minutes until just cooked.  Over cooking nut based cakes will make them dry so it is better to just undercook it as it will firm when cool.  

Let cool and enjoy.  This keep swell in an air tight container too and stays moist.  If you like the speed and ease of this recipe, you will LOVE my other recipes such as ‘The Goodness Cake’ recipe found FREE in my ‘Grain Free Lifestyle’ download HERE.
