Chocolate Fudge Cake
This five-ingredient cake recipe is the fudgiest you will ever find. It has barely any crumb because the cake is baked in a water bath allowing the texture of the chocolate fudge cake recipe to come out moist and dense, like fudge. Chocolate cake recipes usually contain all-purpose flour, eggs, and some fat, but this cake recipe is gluten and dairy free. Rather than white flour, a small amount of coconut flour is added to the batter, while instead of milk, coconut milk is combined with everything for a rich flavor. Whether you want a dessert recipe to satisfy a sweet tooth or have a special event to bring something to, this chocolate fudge cake recipe will receive rave reviews.
The dark chocolate is essential to this gluten-free cake recipe, because of its deep chocolate taste and color. Milk chocolate would likely work fine in this recipe, but it wouldn’t give the cake the same quality of color and would be a much more diluted chocolate taste. Dark chocolate 70% and higher is also noted as one of the healthiest chocolates around because it contains a higher amount of flavonoids than other chocolate varieties. These antioxidants are ideal to consume, because they have been supposed to reduce risk to the cardiovascular system, like heart disease, and can repair cells that have been damaged. If you would like to incorporate more dark chocolate into your diet, go right ahead and make this chocolate fudge cake recipe.
This easy and delicious dessert doesn’t require the same nitpicky technique of other cake recipes because most of the ingredients get cooked on the stove before being poured into a loaf pan. Traditional cake recipes combine wet and dry ingredients separately, but since this chocolate cake recipe doesn’t have many dry ingredients, that process isn’t necessary. Although you might be concerned about your loaf pan being non-stick, it doesn’t matter as much for this recipe, because you grease the tin and line it with parchment paper. For easy removal of the cake, criss-cross two strips of parchment paper, one lengthwise, the other widthwise. If you leave some flaps of paper outside the pan, you can use those to grab onto to pull your cake out later on.
Next time you have a get-together to go to, you will probably be searching for cool dessert recipes to impress a crowd. This chocolate cake recipe is so perfect on its own, without additional touches. If you would like an extra spectacular presentation, however, consider garnishing the top with a combination of chopped nuts and dried fruit, like pistachios, almonds, and cranberries. A sour cherry sauce would also be perfect drizzle over top, ruby red, and glistening. For an adult version, even spike the sauce with a little kirsch. Forget the typical boring gluten and dairy free desserts; this chocolate cake recipe is worth keeping since it doesn’t seem like either filled with indulgent dark chocolate and maple syrup.
