This Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Cake is gluten free, indulgent and packs an intense chocolate flavor. This easy to make cake will hit your sweet spot perfectly!
If you’re looking for a homemade chocolate cake recipe that is easy to make, gluten free and not too cloyingly sweet, you’ve come to the right place. This cake packs a punch with its intense dark chocolate flavor. It is insanely fudgy, deliciously dark and quite uncomplicated to make even if you’ve never made a cake before.
Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature before you start making the cake. Preheat the oven and line the springform tin with parchment paper before you begin. The first step is to place the butter and the chopped dark chocolate in a pan and melt it over medium high heat. Allow it to cool. Next, place the eggs and the sugar in a large bowl and beat it using an electric hand mixer until the mixture is almost double in volume.
Add all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix with a spoon. Once the chocolate and butter mixture is cool, pour it into the whipped egg mixture.
Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold it all in. Pour it into the springform tin and place it in the oven for about 35 minutes until it is just set. Allow to cool completely before releasing the cake from the tin.
While this gluten free cake is quite fudgy and moist, it will start losing moisture once cut like any other cake. I recommend storing it in an airtight container to avoid drying it out. It can be stored up to 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container.
