Blogging Marathon #25: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Baking with Whole Grains
Dish: Quinoa Chocolate Cake
Chocolate is one of our household favorite ingredient. So when I plan to bake something sweet, I usually look for recipes with cocoa or chocolate chips. For the “Baking with Whole Grains” theme, I hit a jackpot when I searched for Quinoa Chocolate cake. I was hoping to find a recipe which used cooked quinoa, but what I found was this amazing gluten free chocolate cake that used only cooked quinoa and no flour at all.
I was a little skeptical trying this recipe since I’ve never baked any gluten free cakes and I wasn’t sure how the texture would turn out to be. There are quite a few bloggers who have tried this cake and shared their delicious cakes, so after reading their testimonials I decided to give the recipe a try. I’m so glad that I tried it because this cake has to be one of the moistest and decadent chocolate cake EVER, I think it was even better than a cake with flour.
