Several years ago when my sister emailed me a recipe for something called “flourless chocolate cake.” I had no idea what it would be like, but it looked intriguing.
When I tried it, I realized it was delicious and not quite like any other cake I’d had before. No flour… Really, NO flour, no rice flour or almond flour or tapioca flour… Not even cornstarch.
A short ingredient list and simple instructions make this elegant gluten-free recipe.
The outcome is a dessert fit for a celebration!
The chocolate flavor is rich. It’s not overpowered by odd tastes that sometimes go with gluten-free flours. The texture was dense but still a little crumbly…,
An old-fashioned chocolate cake that treats your mouth to a memorable combination of sweet, tender cake, crunchy nuts and a bit of cinnamon, this recipe of my grandmother’s adapted well to using gluten-free flours.
