Recipe Tips

  • The best way to tell if the gluten-free chocolate fudge cake is cooked is to see how much the cake has firmed up. It should be nice, and firm and a skewer should come out mostly clean.
  • Melting the butter and chocolate is best done in either a microwave or in a double boiler. The easiest method is to use the microwave.
  • Dark chocolate can be swapped out for milk chocolate. Using milk chocolate will make the cake slightly sweeter.
  • Almond flour can be used instead of ground almonds.
  • The most important part of this recipe is folding the egg whites into the chocolate mix. Try to do this method as gently as possible as you don't want to knock too much air out of the egg whites.
