Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Recipe

From Dr. Axe

One of the most popular treats, of course, is chocolate cake. Whether it’s for a birthday party, an after-dinner dessert or just a way to satisfy a sweet tooth, you really can’t go wrong with this amazing Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake rather than one with shortening or white flour or — even worse — from a boxed mix.

Total Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 8
Diet Type: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian


  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 cups coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1–1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 spiced chocolate frosting recipes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
  3. Mix flour, sugar, cacao, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  4. Add coconut milk, oil, eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  5. Distribute batter evenly between cake pans and bake for 30–35 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Allow to cook through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing from cake pans.
  7. Spread cold frosting evenly over one cake and then stack other. Cover with frosting again and serve.
