This Chocolate Quinoa Cake has blown my mind. Just writing about it here makes me grin as I think about how perfectly moist, rich and chocolatey it is. When I first saw this recipe, I did a double take because I had never before run across anything quite like it. A flourless chocolate cake made with quinoa?
I make a Flourless Chocolate Cake at least a couple times a year and it is one of my favorite recipes. The Chocolate Quinoa Cake on the other hand, has the texture of a traditional cake, yet with no special flours required. All you need is a couple scoops of cooked quinoa.
This cake wowed both my family and our dinner guests who are accustomed to eating traditional sweets. Even knowing that the cake was made from quinoa, I couldn’t detect an odd taste or texture. This is pure, sweet and tender chocolate cake. After eating a slice the next day for breakfast, I sent the rest of it to the office with my husband. This is a very dangerous cake.
