Chocolate Nut Loaf
This is a very surprising cake, simple and perfect for anyone. I found this through my random google-ing to this site http://www.nourishingmeals.com/2012/03/accidental-chocolate-cake-grain-free.html where Ilay my eyes a chocolate cake that not only looked good but was also dairy free, gluten-free and contained no processed sugars! This was ideal for me to make for some friends I was going to visit that day, whom had those diety restriction, and all I had to do was a few minor tweaks to a fairly awesome recipe. Needlessly to say the end result is yummy. Dense chocolatiness, with hints of nuttiness and a waft of coconut, sweet enough in a very dark chocolate way.
So yeah, I was actually surprised that by taking so much out that you could still end up with a really yummy treat that even the tolerant may enjoy as it was ridiculously simple to make too! Literaly chuck in a bowl and whizz up. I can not ask for much more in a cake…..now I’m starting to ramble so I shall stop now and let you bake this cake :P
*note: I forgot to take a picture of finished cake, so imagine a giant chocolate brownie for me please x
Edit: I have the process pictures! ^_^
