This wonderful recipe is from Macmillan's Little book of Treats. Delicious and gluten free, this is chocolate cake at its best!

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Grease and line a round, loose-bottomed 20cm tin.

  2. Place the dark chocolate and butter into a large bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat gently to melt the contents. Stir until the mix has melted then add the golden caster sugar.

  3. Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl with the egg yolks, flour, baking powder and vanilla extract. In another clean, dry bowl beat the egg whites until stiff.

  4. Add the egg white mix one tablespoon at a time and fold into the cake mix. Gradually mix everything together, pour into a cake tin and bake for 50 minutes.

  5. Leave to cool for five minutes before turning out and serving with fresh cream and raspberries.

    I baked both the gluten free and normal version and both were fantastic. This is a recipe I will use over and over again as it works and is very tasty.

    This is an absolutely amazing find on bakingmad, my dad is gluten intolerant, so it was a real surprise when I showed him the cake I had made. Thanks for the big save, bakingmad! (Also the cake is delicious!)
