My Quinoa Chocolate Mud Cake
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!
