Recipe's preparation

    Pre-cooking prep
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C


  2. Grease and line ~20m standard cake tin (I used a spring form tin lined with baking paper). 

  3. Preparing cake
  4. Grind sugar into castor sugar consistency - ~10-20 seconds on speed 9.

  5. Add remaining ingredients

  6. Mix on speed 6 for 1 minute. Mixture should lightens at least a little in colour and becomes smoother. Each flour and butter/ghee type will change the result slightly.

  7. Pour into cake tin and bake for ~45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

    Cool appropriately.

    Lovely recipe, thank you tmrc_emoticons.). I didn't have sorghum flour so used more tapioca and rice flour. Also I cut the sugar down to about 150g and it was still sweet enough.

    One of the best gluten free dairy free chocolate cakes I've ever had. Even made it egg free by replacing the eggs with chia gel eggs.
