I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a cookbook entitled Gluten-Free Quick & Easy by Carol Fenster, Ph.D. Though this cookbook was first published in 2007, the recipes in this over 300-page book are so easy to follow that I had to share it with you because as you all know, I’m all about quick and easy recipes!

Flourless Chocolate Cake

As I flipped through the pages with sections on The Principles of Quick & Easy Gluten Free Cooking, The Gluten Free Lifestyle in Perspective, Stocking your Gluten Free Pantry, Saving Time in the Gluten Free Kitchen and Cooking the Quick & Easy Way, I found myself drooling over the recipes.

Since many of the people that I know who follow a Gluten Free diet are always trying to find the next best dessert, I decided to make the Flourless Chocolate Cake. This cake was deliciously moist and tasted just like a brownie to me. I served mine with some fresh strawberries and it was perfect.

    Can you use almond meal instead of the whole almonds for this?

      I never tried it that way, so I’m not sure, but I don’t see why not. If you do try it, let me know if it works and I can note it on the recipe for future readers. Thank you!
