This gluten-free chocolate fudge cake is moist and has that rich chocolate flavor that we all know and love. You will love this recipe if you are a big fan of chocolate.

You don't need big pieces of this chocolate cake to feel satisfied. It also means that you can probably feed more people with a single cake compared to other chocolate cake recipes.

The remains of this cake are as good as when the cake was fresh from the oven. Just keep it in the fridge and eat when you feel a little hungry. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day. They are even great as a sweet breakfast.

This cake will feed approximately six people, but you may be able to feed more. It depends on how big you cut the slices and how hungry everyone is.

What to serve with this chocolate cake with chocolate

The richness of this chocolate cake may be too much for some people. If you think this is too rich for your taste, then a tablespoon of fresh cream really helps.

A light coating of icing sugar is also an excellent addition to this cake. It adds a touch of sweetness and makes it look great. Try not to add too much icing sugar as it could detract from the cake.

You could make a chocolate ganache to cover the top of this cake. A ganache adds a rich layer of chocolate and will hide any flaws with the cake, such as cracking. I think the cake is rich enough without it, so unless you really like chocolate, I recommend following the original recipe.

My last suggestion is to serve this delicious cake with one or two tablespoons of vanilla ice cream. If you want to go a step further, a rich chocolate ice cream with chocolate is quite surprising along with this cake.

Recipe tips

  • The best way to know if the gluten-free chocolate cake is cooked is to see how much the cake has hardened. It should barely wobble, and a skewer should come out clean.
  • Melting butter and chocolate is best done in a microwave or double boiler. The easiest method is to use the microwave.
  • Dark chocolate can be exchanged for milk chocolate. Using milk chocolate will make the cake a little bit sweeter.
  • Ground almonds are also known as almond flour or almond flour. Either of these will work perfectly in this recipe.
  • The most important part of this recipe is folding the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Try to do this method as gently as possible as you don't want to get too much air out of the egg whites.
