Grain Free Chocolate Cake Recipe

Today I’m sharing with you a Grain Free Chocolate Cake Recipe. It’s more like flourless chocolate cake than regular fluffy cake, but personally I like it that way! Verrryyy chocolaty, I’d say.This grain free chocolate cake is yum and perfect for the holidays.

This cake turned out a lot better than I expected. It was one of those days where I just sorta threw in ingredients and hoped for the best, and it worked. I baked it in a loaf pan and then cut it like slices of bread. The presentation was beautiful for our Thanksgiving table! I’m telling you, sometimes I have way too much fun baking and photographing food.

This grain free chocolate cake is yumm and healthy.

To be fair to all of you, I will tell you a slight disclaimer; I do not eat Paleo desserts on the regular. But here’s my thing, if I’m going to “cheat” it’s NOT going to be the real thing, because the real thing makes me feel terrible and is filled with chemicals and loads of refined sugar. I’d rather recreate it for an occasion like Thanksgiving, which is where I served this cake. There’s a time and a place for grain free cake, and I think a holiday is appropriate.

And to also be fair to you, I try not to overload my blog with grain-free dessert recipes. Since they’re a rare occasion, they will be a rare occasion on my blog too! If you like this recipe, make sure to share it with your friends and family.

    The ingredients list two bars of dark chocolate but the instructions only mention melting one of them. Do you chop the other one and use it as a topping before baking?

  2. Kathy says

    I would like to add grated almond or walnuts then maybe just before completely done take the cake out and slice and put back in the oven to make biscotti
