One of the things y’all often ask for is a recipe with simple-to-find ingredients. It’s so much easier to get your hands on gluten-free ingredients than it used to be – and with Amazon Prime you can snag just about any product you want. Even if it’s a couple dollars more than the store across town, I’ll ante up just because of the time it saves me. Full disclosure: I’m a shameless Amazon addict. The time I save using Amazon is invaluable.
But – you can pick up all 4 ingredients for this cake at almost any grocery store. It’s totally flourless, easy, moist chocolate cake. And though I don’t eat a paleo diet, this cake is paleo as well.
My local Wal-Mart even carries coconut sugar. The one ingredient that might require a little recon on your part is Hershey’s Sugar Free Dark Chocolate. If you can’t find it locally it’s a simple snag from Amazon. You can use their sugar-free chocolate or Hershey’s Kitchen’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chips. For this recipe, I prefer Hershey’s Sugar Free Dark Chocolate because it’s less sweet. I like bold chocolate flavor that’s not overwhelmingly sweet. If you want, feel free to reach for your favorite low-sugar chocolate.
I tried this cake in an 8″ and 9″ spring form pan. There isn’t much difference in the taste or how the cake bakes, but I like how the cake looks much better in a 9″ pan. It’s supposed to have a rustic, imperfect shape so it’s the cake for you if you’re worried about your baking skills. You can’t mess this one up.
Ingredients. Scan the list, y’all. This is a special occasion cake. Like one slice on a special day. It’s rich and full of flavor. Just a few bites will give you a serious chocolate fix.
I’ve got a couple of gluten-free chocolate torte recipes – both are less indulgent than this recipe but still amazing:
- This chocolate torte uses cocoa powder and no chocolate. It’s lighter than the cake recipe here.
- Want a dairy-free version? Try this chocolate torte with coconut powdered sugar. And – it’s made with beans for a protein boost. I know. Crazy – but totally delish!
