Chocolate Angel Food Cake

Gluten-Free Chocolate Angel Food Cake from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures

Chocolate Angel Food Cake from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures

Traditional Angel Food Cake is such a delightful dessert on its own, but there are some of us who think that adding chocolate makes just about any recipe MUCH better. I see you’re nodding your head! So when I saw Lynn’s (Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures) recipe for gluten-free Chocolate Angel Food Cake, I knew I had to save it for future reference. Make it because it for National Angel Food Cake Day (October 10), a special occasion like a loved one’s birthday, when you want to turn on the oven to warm up the house, when you have used egg yolks in another recipe and need to use the egg whites you set aside, or make it because it’s simply a day you deserve cake (every day?). Oh, and this recipe is naturally dairy free, so even more of you can enjoy this cake!

Chocolate Mint Doughnuts from Premeditated Leftovers

Are you a fan of Andes Candy? You know the ones, right? Those delightful mints that are made for after dinner.  If so, I bet you’ll absolutely love these Chocolate Mint Doughnuts with Andes Candy from Alea at Premeditated Leftovers. Alea says, “These are one amazing dessert for the serious mint lover.” She also goes on to give you some specific, but simple instructions that must be followed.  Like not eating any of the candy from the bag once it’s opened. Ha! How did she know that might be a problem? The candy is used in both the donut batter and the glaze, so you really must listen this time. Well, unless you bought an extra bag. My mom would do that!

Paleo No Joke Dark Chocolate Layer Cake

No Joke Dark Chocolate Layer Cake from Zenbelly

No Joke Dark Chocolate Layer Cake from Zenbelly

Simone at Zenbelly (who is also the author of The Zenbelly Cookbook:  An Epicurean’s Guide to Paleo Cuisine) has succeeded beautifully in creating a grain-free, paleo chocolate cake that didn’t require beaucoup eggs. Making a cake that requires six or more pastured eggs at a crack—which is the usual way to go with paleo cakes—can get expensive! So she created a chocolate layer cake made of almond flour, coconut flour, and arrowroot with the standard amount of eggs to keep down the costs. Simone succeeded at creating a more frugal cake that’s still grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo, and pretty amazing. Filled with Chocolate Whipped Cream and topped with a barely sweet Ganache Glaze, this No Joke Dark Chocolate Cake is sure to make more than a few hearts skip a beat. Oh, and dairy-free folks … not to worry … Simone’s recipe also includes instructions on easily making this cake dairy free.
