Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, where I made this delicious Flourless Gluten Free Chocolate Chocolate Cake recently. It’s a cake that our daughter Roni asks for regularly. The frosting is especially good. The original recipe came from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, where it’s called “Decadent Chocolate Cake with Whipped Chocolate Frosting.” A friend of mine recommended it to me, and I’ve made it multiple times.
The cake is a little chewy because instead of flour you use cooked quinoa. I don’t eat dairy except for butter and the milk that is in semi-sweet chocolate chips, and I much prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate or semi-sweet chips. So I included the butter the recipe calls for, but I substituted coconut milk for the milk in the original recipe. Every once in awhile, you get a hard piece of quinoa even though it has been precooked, and I don’t like that. This is an amazing flourless gluten free chocolate chocolate cake, and the quinoa gives it an interesting texture, which I enjoy. The cake is moist and packed with flavor.
I will keep working on the recipe, however, because I don’t like the occasional hard piece of quinoa. Next time, I plan to soak the quinoa for an hour before cooking it. Maybe that will make a difference. And the good thing is, I’ll get to eat more cake.
