I don't have celiac disease, but I enjoy gluten-free baking. I always know I have a success on my hands when my family does not have any idea if a dessert is gluten-free: this is one of those recipes. This cake is adapted from the recipe for Pound Cake with Cocoa in the book Chocolat by Stephan Lagorce. - WinnieAb —WinnieAb
Test Kitchen Notes
A yummy, rich and dense cake that is reminiscent of a decadent flourless cake. The olive oil and chocolate combo is wonderful, and the touch of maple syrup certainly doesn't hurt. A dusting of powdered sugar is the perfect, simple finishing touch. - biffbourgeois —Stephanie Bourgeois
I grew up in a restaurant family (my parents owned the now closed Quilted Giraffe in NYC) and I've always loved to cook.
My interest in the connection between food and health led me to pursue a graduate degree in naturopathic medicine. I don't practice medicine anymore; I have a blog called Healthy Green Kitchen that I started in May of 2009 and I wrote a book called One Simple Change that will be published in January, 2014.
I live in upstate New York with my family and many pets.
