Happy National Chocolate Cake Day

I take any day seriously when chocolate is involved. Now, regardess of the fact that I am doing low to no sugar and gluten free for the next 12 days I still had to make this. It is yummy, rich, decadent, moist, flavorful and sinfully good. I made this recipe to fit in a small pan and it was also enough to fit in three cupcake tins. By doubling the recipe below it would be enough for an 8 or 9 inch pan.

This is probably the best cake I have ever made and its GLUTEN FREE and doesnt have barely any added sugar. Don’t believe me? Well make it immediately and find out. 🙂 🙂 🙂
