Coffee/snack breaks are the perfect time to enjoy a healthy cake like this. I even had some for breakfast. This would be awesome served at a shower, brunch or tea party.

Gluten Free Chocolate Sour Cream Cake |

This cake is made with gluten free oat flour, unsweetened cocoa powder and sour cream. All of which make for an excellent crumb.

Pure maple syrup sweetens everything perfectly without any refined sugars. This cake is not too sweet but just sweet enough.

The homemade whipped topping rounds everything off wonderfully & adds some more sweet flavors.

  1. Beautiful chocolate sour cream cake and inspiring photos, Marla! I enjoy baking gluten-free and grain-free, too. It is so much fun when you can do the “Gluten Free Victory Dance” over a new creation to help others with their diets. Thanks ever so much for sharing, girl. Pinning to group boards at Pinterest! xo

  2. I have yet to try sour cream in a cake, but after looking at this gorgeous cake i have too! Wow, such stunning photos (of the cake and the scenery). The cake look perfect moist and crumbly all at the same time. YUM!

  3. Bingo! This is exactly what I needed! I bake GF for friends all the time, and chocolate is missing in my repertoire.

    ps A lot goin’ on in the head is a good thing. It means you’re happy and feeling inspired. Enjoy :)
