    This Grain Free Mocha Cake from Fabulously Free From is amazing. It’s wonderfully moist and fudgy with a really rich chocolate taste. Mike said it is the best cake I’ve ever made so many thanks to Fabulously Free From for the recipe. Give it a try – you won’t believe that it’s gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free!
