Gluten free Chocolate cake

Today is my youngest’s son birthday, yesterday I decided to make a chocolate birthday cake



This recipe is very simple and easy to make!


175g unsalted butter (leave out at room temperature)

190g Dextrose or 175g Sugar

175g gluten free SR flour (I used Doves Farm)

25g cacao powder ( I used Bon Pom ) or cocoa powder gluten free

4 eggs

1 1/2 tsp GF baking powder

A little milk if needed

2 x 7 in prepared lined Tins



Pre heat oven 180c

Cream fat and sugar together

Add beaten eggs

Mix together

Add flour, baking powder and cacao

If the cake mixture feels a little too thick and a splash of dairy or non dairy milk

When completely mixed together spoon in to cake tins


pop in the oven for 25 mins

remove from oven and turn out onto wire rack




Once cooled add filling

I used a butter icing inside the cake but to keep it low sugar use extra thick double cream


I used Cadburys large chocolate buttons to decorate

The cake went down very well with the family, I will definitely make it again.

Happy gluten free Baking!
