10 Delicious Gluten-Free Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipes

Craving chocolate? These recipes will make you smile

One of the richest, most decadent desserts in the world is not off limits on the gluten-free diet: the flourless chocolate cake.

You should be extremely careful buying one in a bakery or store, because sometimes bakers put in a teaspoon or a tablespoon of flour but still call the cake flourless. Even if the cake recipe itself doesn't include flour, it likely has some gluten cross-contamination (unless the bakery in question is gluten-free).

But you don't need to buy a flourless chocolate cake — these cakes are so simple to make! Just browse through these recipes, find one you like, and whip one up in your kitchen. Your friends will be in awe.
