Grain-Free Chocolate Cake


grain free choc cake v3


Merry Christmas Eve!

Here is a last-minute chocolate cake for you! It is based my recipe for chocolate cupcakes, so it’s also nut and dairy-free! I made this for my brother’s 16th birthday yesterday and it was a HUGE hit! The cake is a bit denser than your average cake, but it is perfectly rich and chocolate-y. I frosted it with some lightly sweetened whipped cream and garnished it with berries, but you can frost it with this if you’re dairy-free. Enjoy, and have a wonderful holiday!

    Planning on making a few of these for a party I’m throwing and wondering if you think they will be ok if I make them a few days ahead? Would you recommend freezing if I make it ahead?

      If you make the cake ahead, I could recommend leaving it covered at room temperature, rather than freezing it!
