This Fantastic Fudge Cake made Gluten-Free has turned out to be one of the most irresistibly, chocolaty, scrumptious cakes I’ve made so far! This did not last long in my house! Before I get my keyboard wet from salivating while looking at the picture and writing this post up, let me tell how I was inspired to make this wonderfully rich, precious slice of heaven!

While surfing the internet and visiting some of my favorite bloggers (which I do daily), I saw a wonderful recipe for Easy Fudge Chocolate Cake for Game Night on Kat & Melinda’s website Homemade Interest, and decided to check it out! After investigating their easy delicious recipe, and staring at that wonderful slice of goodness through my computer screen, I decided to see if I could switch things up and make a gluten-free version, so I could enjoy all that rich deliciousness, as well!

After much thought I was able to combine their recipe with my Chocolate Bliss recipe (compliments to my mother-in-law for the family recipe I changed). I came up with this amazing Fantastic Fudge Cake made Gluten-Free! I owe a wonderful night of indulgence (that’s how long it lasted in my house) to all of them! I switched up the regular sugar for some Stevia and used sugar-free hot fudge (you can’t even tell) instead of the regular, and this came out so mouthwateringly delightful that I actually had to have more than one piece! I know – moderation, right!

Regardless of how you serve this Fantastic Fudge Cake made Gluten-Free, you will not be craving another chocolate cake but this one! Just make sure you have people over to share it with, or you will find yourself standing there in front of the cake plate all by yourself, eating most of it! Trust me, I know this from personal experience! Oh, and what an experience it was! If you want to even up the ante a little more, just add some vanilla bean ice cream on the top! Enjoy! Oh, and don’t blame me if you eat the entire thing!

    • Debbie, That’s just how I rationalized it to myself. Especially being the one the licked that platter clean! 🙂

    • 🙂 I know the feeling! Sometimes when I bake, I feed the neighbors so I don’t have to eat it all. In this case, we did eat it all!!

    • Heather, it works! This Fudge Cakes grantees to kill, or keep at bay that chocolate craving monster. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in to check it out!
