Cake is a wonderful way to show someone you love them. They bring happiness to any special occasion or birthday party. However, with the rise of gluten intolerance, cake can be a problem with all the flour used. This decadent, sweet, and salty recipe makes a rich and hearty cake that doesn’t use flour. So, you can enjoy the chocolaty and nutty flavors of this cake, without worrying about gluten.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 125 grams semisweet chocolate

  • 125 grams granulated sugar
  • 125 grams butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler or in a pan, watching carefully, so it does not burn.

  4. Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
  5. Whisk the yolks with the sugar until the mixture is pale.
  6. Add ground hazelnuts, then the melted chocolate.
  7. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  8. Gently fold in the chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula.
  9. Pour the batter into a greased 20 cm cake pan.

My gluten free friends love this cake. I always have to find recipes to accommodate my son and my friends who have to eat gluten free. I proudly make this cake for them and they can't tell the difference.
