Ultimate Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

It’s World Chocolate Day and I am sharing my aunts Ultimate Gluten Free Chocolate Cake recipe. This cake is unbelievably tender and MOIST and is sweetened with honey, so when you top with chocolate frosting, it won’t be overly sweet.

This Chocolate Cake uses a combination of cocoa powder and almond flour as the flour replacement and is then topped with a creamy and luxurious chocolate frosting.

NOTES: I doubled the mixture to make a layered cake and topped with @cadbury_sa Flake & Whispers.

Enjoy!
