This is a Yanked™ recipe because I have cut the amount of fat and sugar as well as creating a gluten-free cake that is exceptional, moist and delicious. Honestly, you will not be able to taste or feel the lack of gluten in this chocolaty delight.
Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/4 cups almond flour *
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons Dutch cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup apple sauce
3 egg whites, beaten
1/2 stick(1/4 cup)butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, blend flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. Add apple sauce, egg whites, melted butter and vanilla, mixing very well with a wooden spoon or equivalent. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.
Bake 40-50 minutes, or until the top cracks and it is firm when pressed in the center.
Remove from oven to cool slightly before running a thin knife around the sides to loosen. Quickly, and carefully, invert onto a plate. Immediately cover with film wrap and allow to cool while wrapped. This will keep moisture in, creating a superbly moist cake.
* Many swear by measuring gluten-free flour by weight. If desired, 1 1/4 cups almond flour weighs .87 ounces, or 120g.
NOTE: As with all gluten-free recipes, determine that all ingredients are gluten-free by simply looking at all labels of ingredients used.
