How to Make: Gluten free Chocolate Cake

Hi and welcome back.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and have been enjoying the week so far. For me, I am most definitely looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend. I love spending my bank holiday weekends catching up with friends and family. This year, we are hosting a meetup with friends we made at university which will always be a good laugh, Ever since I was at university and first started baking, I have decided to make my friends my official taste tasters/ guinea pigs. They all love cake and since I was diagnosed as a coeliac, my baking has only gained momentum. A few years ago, I created a gluten free rainbow cake to celebrate a friends engagement, – if you would like the recipe, please let me know. Since then, we don’t meet up without them asking for cake. This time, I am baking a gluten free Chocolate Orange Cake. The recipe is simple but tastes so amazing. It is a go-to recipe so I hope you enjoy it too. C. -x-
