Naturally gluten free, this cake is made with almond flour for the perfect flavor and texture to pair with rich, dark chocolate. If you have a strong chocolate craving, bake this.
This chocolate almond cake was the result of a chocolate craving that couldn’t be curbed. With a deep chocolate flavor, it is well suited for the chocolate lover in your life. I prefer to heat each slice for 15 seconds in the microwave before serving. When heated, the warm cake takes on a gooey texture reminiscent of fudge brownies and cookies fresh from the oven.
As a bonus, the cake is naturally gluten-free.
This gluten-free Chocolate Almond Cake relies on almond flour to hold it together and give the cake texture. Dark, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate acts as a base for the cake—follow your preference here. Several eggs are used, which help to set it up similar to a thick custard. Serve for the chocolate lover in your life (especially if that person happens to be you).Print
