Gluten free chocolate cake

Gluten free chocolate cake

I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's day, I just don't like these celebrations that tell you on that particular day you should do this or that. Celebrating love and friendship shouldn't be dictated and surely be something we share everyday without even thinking about it. But, if you are still looking to treat your dear Valentine, here is a really simple recipe for you to try " my gluten free chocolate cake".


40 g cocoa powder 

70 g dark chocolate (at least 70%) 

70 g unsalted butter 

6 eggs (2 whole, and 4 separated into whites and egg yolks) 

70 g ground almonds 

200 g of caster sugar 

A pinch of salt 

8″ cake tin lined with baking paper 

Pre-heat your oven at 180º C


Melt your chocolate and butter over a bain marie. Whisk your egg yolks and 2 whole eggs with 120 g of caster sugar to a thick white consistency, then mix in your ground almonds and cocoa powder. Add this mixture to your melted chocolate and butter. Whisk your egg whites and pinch of salt with the rest of the caster sugar (30 g) to snowy peaks. Slowly fold your whites to your chocolaty mix until completely incorporated. Then pour into your cake tin and cook for 25 minutes (if the end of your knife comes clear, your cake is cooked). Yes, it is as simple as that.

Tip: when your cake is completely cool, dust the top with cocoa powder 

Bon appétit!⠀
