Special Diets / Gluten Free Chocolate Cake
« on: September 20, 2013, 01:01:45 pm »
Iíve created this cake for my dear cousin Kate. After many attempts at various gluten free recipes that ended up as flat tasteless dry ďcakesĒ, I developed this recipe that is light and moist. All gluten free cakes should taste this good. Happy Birthday Kate, I hope you enjoy your cake.

This gluten free chocolate cake has the added natural sweetness from apples and nutty flavours. It is moist enough to be finished off with a dusting of icing sugar.

For the cake:                  
150 grams almonds        
85 grams potatoes, peeled and quartered              
130 grams apple (1 small apple, any type), quartered and cored (no need to peel)  
140 grams unsalted butter, room temperature    
100 grams dark chocolate            
120 grams sugar              
3 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder        

Lightly grease and dust with corn flour a 6 cup bundt or ring cake tin. Preheat the oven to 180C. If you donít have a small bundt tin, you can use a 20 cm round cake tin, but the finished cake will be about 3cm high.

Chop the almonds Speed 7 for 7 seconds. Set aside
Without cleaning the bowl, place the potatoes and apple in the TM bowl and chop at Speed 8 for 5 seconds. Set aside with the ground almonds.
Without cleaning the bowl, chop the chocolate at Speed 8 for 5 seconds.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and melt the chocolate at 80C Speed 2 for 2 minutes.
Add the butter and sugar and mix at Speed 5 for 5 seconds.
Add the eggs one at a time while the blade is running at Speed 3 over 30 seconds.
Add the baking powder, reserved almonds, potato and apple puree and mix at Speed 5 for 15 seconds.
Scrape down the sides and mix for a further 10 seconds at Speed 5.
Pour into the bundt tin and bake for 40-45 minutes until the top springs back and a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning onto a plate. When cool dust with icing sugar.
Serves 8-10. Keeps for 2-3 days.
