A Gluten Free Chocolate Cake by Donna Hay with White Wings Flour!!!

 When I first bought some Gluten Free White Wings Self Raising Flour I noticed that there was a recipe on the pack for 'melt-and-mix chocolate cake' by Donna Hay

So off I toddled and gave it a go......
Once cooked JoJo decorated it with pink chocolate buttons from Koko Black

A slice cut

Served with cream......

Verdict - pretty good!!!!

Oven 180c fan forced - pre heated
Pan:  greased 22cm round pan lined with non-stick baking paper

* 250g unsalted butter, melted
*3/4C (75g) cocoa, sifted
*1and 1/3C (295g) caster sugar (I used rapadura sugar)
*3 eggs
1 and 1/2C (180g) almond meal
*1 and 1/2C (225g) White Wings Gluten-Free SR Flour, sifted
*3/4C (180ml) milk


*250g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
*1/2C (125ml) pouring (single) cream
70g unsalted butter


*  Place butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs, almond meal, flour and milk in a bowl and whisk to combine
*Pour into pan
*Bake for 1 hour or until cooked when tested with a skewer.  Allow to cool in the tin completely


*Place chocolate, cream and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until melted and smooth.  Remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely
*Beat the cooled icing with electric beaters until thick and fluffy and spread over cake with a palette knife to serve.

Nice'n easy......

  1. this is one i will have to try,thankyou for sharing Dzintra.xx

  2. Oh yum! I'm so glad I don't live too close to you, I would have to walk that beach days and night after tasting that yummy looking cake. KOKO Black is my favorite coffee shop. I hope we can visit this weekend in ACT...

  3. I love any sort of chocolate cake Dzintra but I'm not a big fan of Donna Hay. I guess if the cake works the recipe must be good. It looks delicious.

  4. You know you can't go wrong with Donna Hay, dear friend! I must run out for the new issue...
    This cake looks so delicious, and what a brilliant idea for the pink buttons,dear JoJo! So beautiful...
    Big hugs to you,

  5. Yummy! ♥♥♥

  6. White Wings is my favourite gluten free flour. It has the best flavour and best results of any of the others I've tried. Macro is one brand I particularly dislike as it has a real corn flavour that can be overwhelming. You can certainly trust Donna Hay to only endorse great products- and create such great recipes, yummo!

  7. I know this was a while ago but I googled up the recipe and found you. There's no listing of eggs in the ingredients, but they are listed in the instructions!!

    How many eggs in the recipe? I've already started, so I'm going to guess 2. Here goes nothing!

    1. Hi Anonymous....thanks so much for alerting me to the fact that there were no eggs mentioned in the recipe. The required amount is 3. Would love to know how your cake turns out.....Happy Baking, Dzintra
