Gluten Free Simple Chocolate Cake Recipe

Click here to listen to a reading of this blog:


So I baked a gluten free chocolate cake which I’m really pleased with! It tastes just as good as regular chocolate sponges I’ve baked in the past. I couldn’t tell that it was gluten free to be honest. I didn’t go by a recipe but just bunged a load of things in a bowl. I did note what I used, luckily! 

This cake is gluten free.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 15-30 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients:

100g unsalted butter

100g castor sugar (white)

2 medium eggs

2 table spoons GF dark cocoa powder

100g GF self raising flour

1 teaspoon GF baking powder

3 tablespoons semi skimmed milk

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 190c/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat eggs in to the mixture.
  4. Fold in flour and baking powder and combine well.
  5. Add milk and mix well. It may be a little ‘sloppy’ but don’t be alarmed or add anymore flour!
  6. Pour mixture in to tin/s dependent on whether you’re making a sponge sandwich or loaf cake.
  7. Bake for 15-20 mins for sponge, 20-30 for loaf and until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
