Let’s be real here. I have nothing against gluten. I love bread in any form or shape, especially if it is homemade. Nothing better than that! 

However, sometimes I make these recipes that are naturally free of flour and have the usual ingredients that I happen to have in the pantry all year round. I love them.

I love old recipes that come from our grandmothers and I always look for new ones I can find in old cooking books. 

There are many old recipes out there, especially the European ones, where baked goods are made without the use of flour.

Almond flour, for example, especially in Spain, was used for at least 600-700 years now, and Tarta de Santiago is one of the most authentic and traditional Spanish baked goods you can find around.

Easy Flourless Chocolate Cake- Gluten Free Recipe on a platter

This flourless chocolate cake seems to be very popular on the internet as so many people look for gluten-free recipes to enjoy.

I thought it would be a good idea to put it on the blog because it is something that you can make very easy at any time.

Besides that, who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake? It is so good that you will not even notice that there is no flour in it.

This cake is dense, fudgy and delicious and goes really well with a cup of good tea or coffee.

It is also effortless to make. If you manage to melt the chocolate and butter together on top of a water bath, the rest of the ingredients come together super fast.

Pretty much you just dump them together and mix them to a goey batter.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven and you have cake. Got some whipped cream ready to go?

Some fresh berries to sprinkle over the slice of warm cake? No? How about an orange? Or some candied orange peel to decorate it? 

This is the real deal if you celebrate a romantic night at home. Valentine’s Day, anyone?

Personally, I wouldn’t say I like going on a date with my husband on February 14th. I think the restaurants are crowded, the service is meh, and the meals are usually not that good.

We like going out either before or after the day, and for that night, if he is home and not working, I cook and bake something easy and delicious.

(Here is an idea of a lovely easy dinner).

For the dessert, you can bake this cake or if you are not into chocolate, make this Spanish Orange-Almond Flan, which is also gluten-free but light and perfect for ending a lovely meal.

One piece of advice I would have for this chocolate cake. Use the best quality ingredients you can afford to buy.

There is a huge difference in taste between the Hershey chocolate and Belgian one.

Make sure you use unsweetened cocoa powder and not the stuff you drink with milk and full of sugar and other ingredients.

You can play with the flavors. For example, you can remove a teaspoon of cocoa powder and replace it with instant coffee for a coffee flavor.

Or you can replace the vanilla flavor with rum flavor, or almond.
