We tested this recipe in the DIET KONTROL Kitchen because we wanted to know its suitability for residents on a gluten-free diet in a long-term-care home in terms of nutrition value while being easy for staff to prepare.
This chocolate cake was light in texture and very moist. We followed all the directions and baked the cake for 49 minutes. The centre of the cake took much longer to bake than the edges and it was a bit on the oily side. The butter did not incorporate well into mix and we would recommend using slightly less butter. Otherwise, it was quite tasty and one wouldn’t notice that it was gluten free. For long term care, cut into 2×2” (50g) squares. No icing used.
Retested Results: This product was retested and made into cupcakes. The product turned out beautifully and was exactly as it was intended to be. One would never know it was gluten-free!
