Here are 10 unforgettable gluten free cake recipes that everyone will enjoy.

1. Flourless Chocolate Pomegranate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Pomegranate Cake

A gorgeous recipe where a basic flourless chocolate cake is turned into something more exotic by the addition of pomegranate. There’s a good splash of pomegranate syrup in the cake batter as well as those beautiful ruby-red pomegranate seeds on top of the cake. Elegant and tasty!


2. Peach and Mulberry Cake

Peach and Mulberry Cake

A delightful, moist, almond cake is topped with luscious peaches and mulberries for a taste and colour explosion. It’s great to see a cake recipe using mulberries, but if you don’t have mulberries (or peaches for that matter) you can play around with whatever takes your fancy for a topping. Perfect for a special afternoon tea. Or dare I suggest an indulgent breakfast?


3. Pistachio Polenta Cake with Mandarin Syrup and Figs

A gorgeous, dense and succulent banana cake with a crumble topping is smothered in a delicious, rich, spoon-licking good caramel sauce. Seriously, don’t miss the caramel sauce. It works so well with all of the flavours and textures of the cake and takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness. You’ll thank me…


5. Chocolate Ricotta Cake

An elegant cake where ricotta is paired with chocolate and subtly spiced with cinnamon and a touch of lime zest. The ricotta makes the cake moist and velvety. It is chocolatey – but in a restrained and refined way. Sprinkled with bright green pistachios, this is a delicious and decadent treat.


6. Blueberry, Lemon, Poppy Seed and Almond Cake

10. Easy Chocolate Cake

Easy Chocolate Cake

A truly delicious and super-easy flourless chocolate cake recipe. This recipe gives you the most fudgey, rich, intensely chocolatey chocolate cake you can possibly imagine. And with 16 ounces (that’s nearly half a kilo) of dark chocolate, it’s little wonder that this cake packs a serious chocolate punch. There’s also a massive 9 eggs in this recipe. But it’s all worth it. So very, very, worth it.


Happy baking!
