Chocolate Gluten Free Cake

Do you ever get this hankerin' for something chocolatey and yet nothing is in the house that satisfies?  I bought some cookies but they are full of gluten and I don't do well with a lot of gluten so I try to stay away.  I saw this post on the Yoga Life Society Facebook page and I had to try it. 

So glad I did!

Might be the best cake I've ever made and it's gluten free, moist and not that sugary.

Check it out-- so simple!  Don't let the chick peas scare you away.  It doesn't taste like hummus, I swear.

Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
4 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds after the first minute, until chocolate is melted and smooth. If you have a powerful microwave, reduce the power to 50 percent. Combine the beans and eggs in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Add the sugar and the baking powder, and pulse to blend. Pour in the melted chocolate and blend until smooth, scraping down the corners to make sure chocolate is completely mixed. Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. 

Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar just before serving.

 Isn't it beautiful? 
Thank you YLS for posting healthy gluten free
yummy food.

I suggest baking while watching a movie.
 One of my favorite things to do.  Tonight I watched Departures an Oscar winning foreign film from Japan.  Beautifully done.  I guess a few tears and chocolate was just what the doctor ordered.

Be well and hope you have a sweet evening!
