Beautiful Gluten Free Wholefood 3 layered cake

Last Saturday I had the honour of hosting my lovely sister in laws kitchen tea, before we all ventured out into the city for a fun filled hens night! I wanted to make her feel really special so I decorated my house with beautiful flowers and the other bridesmaids helped me to whip up an amazing spread of yummy foods. We prepared fun games and even had a beautician who arrived to give everyone facials which was delightful.recipe 3

My mum and I are gluten intolerant and we both wanted to be able to enjoy the yummy foods too, which inspired me to create a gluten and refined sugar free cake, healthy punch and yummy cashew cucumber bites.recipe 5

Today I want to share the gluten free 3 layered cake recipe, which was inspired by Lisa Corduff’s easy one bowl chocolate cake. This cake was originally made with spelt flour and as I wanted to make it gluten free, I played around with the ingredients and I came up with this recipe. I classify this recipe as a treat as it does have quite a lot of sugar and as my body can only tolerate small amounts of sugar I would only make this on special occasions.

This is such a beautiful, simple recipe to make! To make it easy for you I have also included the instructions to make 3 layers as I actually made each layer separately so I would have the exact same amount in each batch. However feel free to make this cake with just one layer and I promise you it will taste just as good!

I hope you enjoy making this for your next event as much as I did!
