Have you ever just really craved dark chocolate?? Like it's all you can think about and you're just not going to be happy until you can have some?? No? Just me? When my dark chocolate craving hits, gooey brownies are almost always at the top of my list! Perhaps it's because I really do not eat them very often...
A few days ago, I wanted a simple brownie recipe, using the least amount of ingredients...but with tons of chocolatey flavor!
My experiment turned out a little cakelike, yet they were very moist! With just a hint of fudginess... So, I decided to turn them into a cake. And since it began as a brownie recipe, I only used half a cup of flour. Normal cake recipes often call for 1 1/2+ cups of flour.
Ta da- almost flourless gluten free chocolate cake! Moist and tender, yet it has a small, soft crumb.
Even better with a glaze or icing- cookie dough, peanut butter, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, butterscotch...
4 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. oat flour
1 c. whipped topping (look for one without hydrogenated oil)
2 squares of chocolate or about 1/4 c. chocolate chips, chopped
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and coconut oil, until smooth. Next, beat in the vanilla, brown sugar, and oat flour. Beat in the whipped topping. Finally, fold in the chopped chocolate. Spread icing on cooled cake. Store in the fridge.
While the two terms are not synonymous, there is a lot of overlap. Flourless means there is no flour or ground starch present. Therefore, items labeled flourless would also be gluten free, unless there is possible cross-contamination from other foods created in the same space. Gluten free does not equal flourless as there are many types of grain flour- such as amaranth, brown rice, quinoa, and oat flour- which do not contain gluten. Gluten is only found in wheat, barley, and rye.
With just 7 simple ingredients, this almost flourless gluten free chocolate cake makes a moist, slightly fudgy dessert that will satisfy that deep chocolate craving!
