WOW ! This was great ! more gluten free recipes Please !
This is the best gluten free cake I have ever had! So moist and delicious! Even my gluten resistant family loved it! I can't wait to try your other recipes! Thank you Land O' Lakes!
This was so simple and it was enjoyed by the kids and adults alike. I agree with a previous comment that it will take a little longer than the 25-30 minute range stated; anticipate approximately an extra 5-7 minutes more. Otherwise, an easy and delicious cake that comes together quickly. Use a good gf cocoa for richer flavor in the chocolate batter (Rodelle is excellent).
I really enjoyed this simple cake, easy to make and easier to eat! I used my own chocolate cream cheese icing that really complimented the cake. This is a nice, quick cake to whip up for company to enjoy after the entree. The kids love it too...not just us Celiacs!
Because we love the LOL recipe for chocolate chip cookies I decided to give this cake recipe a try. It was a great success. The texture is wonderful...no one would guess it is gluten free. The best part is that it is easy to make but be aware that it may take well over 30 minutes to bake.
