Chocolate. Cake. Are there two more perfect words? We can think of so many times a chocolate cake is the answer – for birthdays, potlucks, celebrations, bake sales – and of course, just because. We’ve got layer cakes, fancy-schmancy special occasion cakes, cupcakes, cheesecake, sheet cakes, and a few surprises. These are the chocolate cake recipes you have been looking for. And guess what? Each one is gluten-free. So everyone can enjoy!
Mocha Toffee Chocolate Cake
Our basic recipe for Easy Chocolate Cake, which is gluten-free, is brushed with Low FODMAP Coffee Liqueur, filled and frosted with Espresso Buttercream and the sides are covered with toffee bits and miniature chocolate chips. Get the Mocha Toffee Crunch Cake recipe.
We grew up in NYC in the 70s and “Blackout cake” was a favorite. This version is just as rich, but it is lactose-free and gluten-free. The filling and frosting is actually an easy-to-make pudding, and the exterior is covered with cake crumbs. No cake decorating experience necessary. Get the Blackout Cake recipe.
You can have cheesecake on special diets – and it can be lactose-free! We have several cheesecake recipes, from cakes to brownies. This one features a crisp chocolate crust and a creamy, chocolate NY-style cheesecake filling, that happens to be lactose-free and so decadent, no one will know! Get the Chocolate Cheesecake recipe.
Chocolate Peppermint Cake
The picture says it all. A chocolate cake made in a decorative pan with a chocolate glaze and a sprinkling of crushed candy canes! Perfect for winter holidays, but we also think chocolate and peppermint is a year-round flavor combo. Get the Chocolate Peppermint Cake recipe.
Black Forest Chocolate Cake
Black forest is the classic combo of chocolate and cherries. This version has chocolate cake and a chocolate whipped cream filling and frosting. Perfect celebration cake. Get the recipe for Black Forest Chocolate Cake.
Mocha Maple Chocolate Cake
Sometimes a simple cake is best. Our Mocha Maple Chocolate Cake is made with maple syrup and brewed coffee, hence the “mocha” flavor. While you could use this cake to make a frosted layer cake, we like a simple wedge with a scoop of ice cream. Get the recipe for Mocha Maple Chocolate Cake.
Black Velvet Guinness Chocolate Cake with Whiskey Frosting
This chocolate cake made with Guinness has become a bit of a cult fave in our community. Originally developed for St. Patrick’s Day, we know you will enjoy it year round. Get the Black Velvet Chocolate Guinness Cake recipe.
Texas Sheet Cake
Looking for a chocolate cake to serve a crowd? This sheet cake, studded with nuts, and with a glossy icing, is absolutely the perfect choice! Get the Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake recipe.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Whipped egg whites help create a light texture in this flourless chocolate cake that features Dutch-processed cocoa and dark chocolate – in addition to a smidge of espresso powder. Get the recipe.
Spicy Chocolate Cake
Cocoa, cinnamon, chipotle and cayenne give this chocolate cake a little warmth and zing. The cake is gluten-free and based on oil, so it stays moist and soft for days. Those are maple leaves, by the way. You can use anything for a stencil, but the confectioners’ sugar decoration is optional. Get the Spicy Chocolate Snack Cake recipe.
Mini Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes
Mini cupcakes offer portion control! Here you get to have an adorable, tiny chocolate cupcake with a rich chocolate ganache swirl on top. Get the Mini Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes recipe.
Chocolate Pudding Cake
Okay we know this isn’t a classic cake, but it has cake in the title and once you see how easy it is – and how rich and decadent – you will excuse us for taking liberties. One batter bakes up with a cake-like top and pudding down below. Serve warm and top with vanilla ice cream for a homespun dessert. Get the Chocolate Pudding Cake dessert recipe.
Our gluten-free chocolate cupcakes are perfect for so many occasions. Top with vanilla frosting – or your favorite flavor! Get the Chocolate Cupcake recipe.
Red Velvet Cake
Okay we know that red velvet is just a tad bit chocolaty, but it deserves a home in this list. Our version features classic, old-fashioned cooked vanilla frosting. Get the Red Velvet Cake recipe.
Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cake
We have several version of flourless chocolate cakes. This one has raspberries embedded within a truffle like cake, which is then glazed with dark chocolate ganache. You can make this in an 8-inch (20 cm) round cake pan, too. Get the Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cake recipe.
