In this episode of “Piatto,” we demonstrate how to make a gluten free Chocolate Cake with Almond Flour using a KitchenAid Mixer (the KitchenAid Mixer Professional 600) Of course, you can use this Gluten Free Chocolate Cake recipe with any brand of stand mixer.

This KitchenAid cake recipe will please EVERYONE- not just those following a gluten-free or lactose free diet. Here we use the KitchenAid Mixer Professional 600 to whip the eggs into a pale and fluffy base perfect for producing a great rise, even with gluten-free almond flour.

This moist chocolate cake recipe with oil is not only a gluten-free recipe but also a lactose free cake recipe with no butter!

TIP: Freeze your chocolate chips for 30-60 minutes before adding to the cake. This ensures the chocolate chips won’t sink to the bottom and melt into a solid mass.

TIP: Use fine almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill almond flour is a reliable choice)

TIP: Choose dutch processed cocoa powder for this cake recipe.
