Recipe - Gluten Free Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Hi everyone!
It was my colleague's birthday and I baked her a cake. She is allergic to gluten so I wanted to make her something nice which doesnt taste as bland as in the store. I hope it worked because she loved it!



I got the recipe here but I did make a few changes in the method so I've written the easier version below. 

You will need:
300 g white sugar
185 g Butter
3 eggs
200 g Gluten free plain flour
70 g Gluten free self raising flour
90 g milk
20 g Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Or 4 Tablespoons

half a bag of chocolate chips (I used dark but you can choose whichever)

Instructions:
  1. Pre Heat fan forced oven to 160 Degrees, and butter a Kugelhopf baking tin
  2. Whisk the sugar and butter together until creamy
  3. Add eggs one at a time while you are mixing
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended
  5. Pour into prepared tin and make for 40-60 minutes until skewer runs clean when tested. 
  6. Leave on bench to cool completely before serving
The last part is super important as this is gluten free four and therefore really crumbly (I didnt add Xantham Gum as the recipe didnt call for it) so when I was very eager to take the cake out of the tin, a part of it decided to stay behind. Oops... 

Oh well, good thing I had some lovely chocolate left to cover and stick it all together a la Bake Off ;) The end result was quite amazing actually!



I have never actually tempered chocolate before so I just melted it and poured it over. So in the end result the chocolate was not as shiny, but it was still very yummy:



And the birthday girl and the other colleagues were very pleased with it. Plus I was extremely chuffed that I finally got to use my shiny new cake holder! More on that later, I dont even have piccie yet...
