I love to bake as a way to unwind. I’ve wanted to develop a grain-free chocolate cake for many months, so I took some time in the kitchen to and came up with this recipe for you.
It’s rich, moist and very hard to tell that it’s grain free. I always frost my cakes with a classic buttercream. You just can’t do much better than a sweet whipped butter frosting with chocolate.

If it’s your first time to make a buttercream, please follow the directions exactly and take your time. The magical thing about buttercream is that after all the butter has been added, the mixture will look like it’s ruined as it sinks to the bottom of the bowl and curdles. Then, like magic, it springs back to life and becomes a smooth and satiny frosting.
