Flourless = Gluten-free
This flourless, gluten-free chocolate cake has a decadent chocolate base topped with homemade chocolate icing, fresh raspberries and chocolate hearts. Baking with food allergies means getting creative with the kinds of flour in your pantry. That, and experimenting with lots of gluten-free flour blends. But the best kind of recipes are the ones that exclude flour entirely, like this flourless cake.
To make it flourless, we’re using lots of cocoa powder and melted chocolate. Because chocolate cake was never about the flour, it has and will always be about the chocolate! Who’s with me? It’s that time of the month so I’d be content with a chocolate fountain on my desk right now. I digress…
You thought I was done talking about chocolate? Not a chance and if you’re still reading, chances are you aren’t mad about it. What better to top a chocolate cake than melted down chocolate chips in the shape of hearts? These chocolate hearts make the perfect garnish paired with fresh raspberries and they are super simple to make! Just melt some chocolate chips over a double boiler, grab some parchment paper, swirl a spoonful of the chocolate over the parchment paper in the shape of a heart, chill and enjoy. Make sure to be extra careful when peeling the chocolate hearts off the paper; just like the flourless chocolate cake, they are fragile little beauties.
