Don’t you just love a good chocolate cake? This gluten free chocolate cake is probably the easiest thing you could possibly make, and it’s just delicious. It’s gluten-free, so it is perfect for Passover, that’s coming up next week. In my house, we call this cake mud cake, but you may also know it as kladdkaka, Swedish sticky cake. I love easy recipes and this gluten free flourless chocolate cake recipe is just that. If you love rich chocolate cakes, you’re going to love this one. The instant coffee adds a special twist to the cake, but if you’re going to serve this to children you might want to not add it into the batter.
