Valentine's Day always makes me notice all the food I can't eat. Someone brings gluten-filled cupcakes to work or heart-shaped homemade fudge studded with nuts (I'm also allergic to nuts) or—you get the point, it's rough. Anyone else have a day where they're bombarded with foods they can't eat?
Here's a chocolate recipe that fellow gluten-intolerant folks can enjoy. This "last minute" chocolate cake was inspired by the microwave chocolate mug cake trick. However, this cake is baked in the oven instead of taking a quick whirl in the microwave.
You'd never know the cake comes together in minutes. It has deep, rich chocolate flavor that'll help you forget about all the treats you had to turn down all day.
