This is a really easy but super delicious ‘all in one’ cake recipe and is perfect for a special occasion. I made this for a chocoholics birthday and even though they themselves do not need to be gluten free they loved it and said they wouldn’t have known it was gluten free if I hadn’t told them as it was so gooey and not grainy like some gluten free cakes they’ve tried in the past. So here you go, a chocolatey fudge cake that everyone can enjoy…

Cake Ingredients

  • 175g self-raising all purpose gluten free flour
  • 25g cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon of gluten free baking powder
  • 175g muscocado sugar
  • 175g softened butter
  • 3 large free range eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 50g dark chocolate – melted

Fudge Frosting Ingredients

  • 200g softened butter
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 200g dark chocolate – melted


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180.c and line 2 x 20cm sandwich tins with baking parchment and butter the sides to stop the mixture sticking.

  2. Place all the cake ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides and re-mixing until well combined.

  3. Divide the mixture between the two cake tins and bake in the oven for 30 minutes until cooked through and springy to touch. Leave for a couple of minutes and then turn out onto a wired rack to cool completely.

  4. Meanwhile make the fudge frosting icing by placing all the ingredients into the cleaned food processor and mix until smooth, again scraping down the sides and re-mixing until well combined.

  5. Sandwich the two sponges together with around a 1/3 of the frosting, add a further 1/3 to the top and a 1/3 to the sides of the cakes, smoothing as best you can with a spatular until the entire cake is covered with fudge frosting.

  6. Decorate the cake with chocolate shavings and fudge pieces and the devour with your loved ones. This cake should serve 10.
