Whatever your reason for celebrating, why not do so with a delicious, gluten-free cake that’s also easy to make?

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake

Lusciously Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake


Note: New updated recipe! If you have a favorite GF baking flour blend, you can use it in place of the potato starch, almond and tapioca flours.

Gluten-free glaze (not necessary – but then again, totally necessary)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F and set aside a greased, 9″ circular pan (or 13″x9″ rectangular pan).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flours, ground oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt and (if necessary) xanthan gum.
  3. In a separate bowl (or blender), combine “buttermilk” (coconut milk/vinegar), avocado and bananas and puree until creamy.
  4. Add buttermilk, avocado and banana to flour mixture.
  5. Mix in oil, agave nectar and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour batter into pan and bake on top shelf for 50 minutes.

NOTE: The inside of this cake is definitely softer than most – if it seems extra gooey, let it cool in the pan for 1-2 hours to allow it to set.

To make the glaze:

  1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt coconut oil over medium-low heat.
  2. Stir in agave, sugar and coconut milk and mix until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add vanilla extract and whisk in the cocoa powder.
  4. Remove pot from heat and let it sit for 2 minutes before whisking in arrowroot.
  5. Place in the fridge to thicken and slightly cool.
  6. Once cake and glaze are cooled, drizzle to your heart’s desire and ENJOY!
