A Gluten Free Chocolate Cake!!! Also good for gluten people too...

This is our family favourite....

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake (also a good recipe for gluten flour)
150 grams softened butter
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs (only 2 if you are making a cake with gluten flour)
2 cups grated carrot (or 2 ripe bananas mashed)
2/3 cup cocoa powder (dark)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup gluten free self raising flour
1/2 cup of milk

Preheat oven to 180c (or moderate oven). Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat in. Next add the grated carrot or banana mash. Mix in dry ingredients thoroughly and then add milk.
Scrape into a greased and lined cake tin and bake for approximately 45 - 50 minutes.
Ice with your family's favourite chocolate icing. Usually I use butter, boiling water, icing sugar and cocoa powder but last time I swapped the butter for light cream cheese and the icing was extraordinary (and much lower in fat... not that it mattered).
Have fun.
Love Kate xxooxx.


  1. yum, it's a bit grey and drizzly here today, perfect for some baking, I hope I have all the ingredients x

  2. YUM! I bought extra eggs and extra butter today knowing I wanted to do copious baking this weekend. Excellent. I'll make this one! Thanks!

  3. Ooh! I like it a lot! One for the recipe file!

  4. Thank you! This is such a delicious gluten free cake. I was curious (dubious?) about the carrot but it tasted fantastic - the cake was moist and delicious. I had to make a cake for my brother's birthday and his girlfriend is GF. I read your post the same day I realised I needed a GF recipe. It was very well received :)
