Almond Chocolate Cake with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting - Gluten, Milk and Soy Free
So, tonight at around 11pm, Guy and I felt like something chocolate (we are watching the movie Chocolate!) Also - today I spent the most lovely day with a friend of mine and her 2 little ones. She baked 2 different cakes for her oldest's birthday party on Sunday. So, since I was in the mood for cake and we were both in the mood for chocolate, I thought I would throw together a quick cake! I searched my flours and realized I was out of Millet (my most used flour). I also realized I have way too much almond flour, so what did I do – I grabbed my Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook from Elanas Pantry
I LOVED the photo on the front page. While I have tried to make the frosting that Elana has in her book, I was not successful, so I made the Martha Stewart one I have used before with great success and then toasted it.
After baking the cake and letting it cool (well almost, we were impatient) I frosted it and set my torch to it!
Here is our result – a chocolate gluten free, milk free, soy free cake in less than an hour. We are certainly enjoying our midnight snack of chocolate cake with toasted marshmallow topping along with a nice red wine!!
