Decadent, moist and most of all coeliac friendly!
This is my health(ier) nourishing quinoa chocolate mud cake recipe. It’s perfect for Coeliacs, It’s high in protein, It’s gluten free & It’s for anyone that wants a delicious and moorish treat!
I have never been a huge chocolate person myself, I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate. But I was never that kid that wanted a chocolate mud cake for their birthday. This recipe was actually trying to be a caramel quinoa cake but failed miserably, I couldn’t get the caramel taste into the cake how I wanted. I didn’t just want to throw out the mixture and start from scratch again so I rumbled (no pun intended) around my pantry and came across some cacao that needed to be used. It wasn’t my first option but luckily it soon progressed into a decadent rich chocolately cake – which I am SO glad it did.
By using pre-cooked quinoa, the cake takes on this oddly delicious texture that leaves you wanting more.
I found this killer frosting recipe from Oh She Glows – which really just tops this cake off and turns it into something very special.
What is even more special is the fact that the main ingredient is cooked quinoa – making this gluten free and high in protein (winning!).
This is truly a very rich and decadent special birthday cake and I can assure you it will be a winner in your house hold too!
