Recipe For Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

I chose to make my gluten free chocolate cake using cassava flour. It has the same taste and texture of ordinary wheat flour which is perfect for me.

Our telephone number at work is one digit different to the local taxi service. Because we often have issues with the line we have a cellphone number listed on the outgoing message. Early one morning the cellphone rang and it was someone telling me he did not need a taxi as he had made another plan. I explained that he had not called the taxi company. After a lengthy discussion he realized that the land line number he had orginally called was not the correct number. However, he did not work out from that conversation that the cellphone number he had dialled was also not the taxi service. Just before I hung up he told me he would call the cellphone next time he needed a lift somewhere. I then had to try and get him to understand that the end result would be the same as today.

To make this gluten free chocolate cake I substituted regular cake flour for cassava flour. I have never tried it with the cake flour so I am not sure if I got the same end result. I don’t often bake gluten free as it does not always work well with sucrose free. But this worked fantastically well. The cake is a chocoholics delight. I am also very impressed with how the cassava flour worked and I will be showcasing more recipes soon. I want to play around with gluten flour substitutes as my parents are coming to visit in December. Is there a particular gluten free flour you use?

  2. A nice recipe for gluten free chocolate cake. I do keep my eyes open for gluten free recipes as one of my son’s friends is allergic to gluten. I have baked with both almond flour and rice flour.

  9. I love these intro stories, I think they are absolutely classic, especially since you rarely pass comment which somehow makes them funnier still. Casava having the same consistency as wheat is a good lead, must give that a bash. GMO has made wheat a monster which it never should have been!
