🎂BIRTHDAY CAKE🎂 Spent the afternoon baking this beauty with Mumma🍰 We used #freeandeasycakemix with @orgran_healthandnutrition egg replacer, @alpro almond milk, @bioglanuk Cacao superfood powder, @superfoodwales super cacao+ @coconutmerchant oil. With @pipandnut PB, @mr_organic chocolate spread+ @naturescharm butterscotch sauce. Topped with @rawandwildco chocolate pili nuts chocolate🍫 Who wants a slice?🍰
Every once in a while you come across a recipe that is so intriguing that you must try it. I came across the recipe for gluten free chocolate cake from the folks @Food52. Even though I don’t need a gluten free recipe, I was intrigued by the replacement ingredient. Quinoa surprised me and resulted in a moist, dense and beautifully chocolaty winner. This recipe is a keeper! #glutenfreechocolatecake https://food52.com/recipes/76025-paula-shoyer-s-chocolate-quinoa-cake
CHOCOLATE AND SALTED CARAMEL SWIRL CAKE 🍰. I made this for my brothers birthday yesterday and I used my chocolate cupcakes recipe (from a few posts back) but I subbed the oat flour for buckwheat! I doubled the quantity and left one of the batches without the cacao powder with some extra salt to make the salted caramel and it was super tasty 😋. It was slightly too dense for my liking (the original recipe is SO soft and moist) but it still turned out great ☺️.
Raise your hand if you LOVE chocolate? ❤️❤️❤️ ✋✋✋ You are going to love this totally sinful chocolate cake recipe. Please note that @bobsredmill sponsored this recipe/post. .....
I used a recipe from the one and only "Martha" and converted it to be gluten-free using my trusty Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten-free flour blend.
I say if you're going to indulge in dessert, it might as well be worth it! This cake is SO. WORTH. IT. If you like chocolate, this cake is to die for. Just be sure to invite a lot of friends over to help you polish it off.
Recipe (and more pictures) in my profile link. Go ahead, take a look. There's no harm in looking - right?

“He showed the words “chocolate cake” to a group of Americans and recorded their word associations. “Guilt” was the top response. If that strikes you as unexceptional, consider the response of French eaters to the same prompt: “celebration.”
- Michael Pollen, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto
Yikes! That quote hits us every time we read it 😳 We are so conditioned to think about food in very specific ways (usually negative and #itsnotok )...and our mental association to food has a strong impact on our health and mental wellbeing. The French have one of the LOWEST rates of obesity in the world and they go through life C E L E B R A T I N G food, while Americans who are being conditioned to feel guilt over food choices have the HIGHEST rate of obesity. Research shows that food guilt negatively affects the body, especially digestion. -
What was your reaction when you read the words “chocolate cake?” Would you consider it a healthy mindset or a negative mindset?
Isn’t this layered cake by @scientifically.sweet using @kingarthurflour something to celebrate?! We’ll take a piece with zero guilt! 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏻♀️ Anybody else?
Snuck in this last wedding tasting just before the big Nice getaway. Katia wants to serve chocolate cake & berries for dessert at her wedding. She tried three chocolate cakes, all gluten-free and made with organic ingredients: Deluxe Choc (3 layers, with white chocolate & soured cream filling-frosting & chocolate curls); dairyfree Chocolate & Olive Oil with chocolate fudge filling; and Reine de Saba with almonds & @appletonrumuk & dark ganache. Going to try a properly squidgy version of the Reine too, when I’m back. (If you’re serving whole slices and not wedding portions, you can bake the cake for a shorter time so it’s a bit soft in the middle - the way it’s supposed to be) 🍫🍰🍓🥃
