Gluten-Free Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

This wonderfully simple gluten-free cake is incredibly moist and tender thanks to the olive oil, not overly sweet, and deeply chocolaty, especially with the dairy-free chocolate glaze!

- gluten-free all purpose flour - granulated sugar - cocoa powder - baking soda - baking powder


An exquisite dessert to wrap up any meal or enjoy with tea or coffee.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Add the olive oil, Greek yogurt, eggs, coffee and vanilla extract, and mix until batter is smooth.

All that’s left to do if pour the batter into a lightly oiled pan (oil with olive oil and I like to also cut out a piece of parchment paper and place it in the bottom of the pan to help ensure the cake doesn’t stick to the pan), spread evenly and bake!

Make the chocolate glaze: when the cake is cooled, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and over very low heat melt the chips and periodically mix to combine.

When the cake is fully cooled, move the cake to your serving platter, drizzle with the chocolate glaze, then gently spread the glaze over the top of the cake so that it falls over the sides of the cake a bit.
