A recipe for those people who have asked for gluten free cake.  I just hope they are okay with cocoa powder!

IMG_5624This is not an airy well risen cake as you can imagine but it does taste nice and especially if you warm a piece in the microwave and serve it with fresh cream or ice cream. It is cooked at a fairly low temperature.




You will need:

  • 5 oz dark chocolate
  • 5 oz butter
  • 6 oz caster sugar
  • 2 oz  cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • An 8 inch cake tin well greased and dusted with cocoa powder

Oven  150 C  300 F  or gas mark 2

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler or the microwave and allow to cool slightly.  Stir the dry ingredients together, that is the sugar and cocoa powder and mix in the eggs and vanilla essence then the melted chocolate and butter until well combined.Pour into the tin and bake for 30 minutes.  Cool in the tin for 10 minutes. then turn out onto a wired rack.  You can decorate or just leave it as it is and serve with cream.  It is a very moist cake and delicious with a nice cup of tea.  JAB.
