I made this cake and my friends loved it (and wanted the recipe). It's so easy and better than one I made a couple of years ago. I didn't have espresso powder but added a teaspoon of vanilla instead. I used regular Hershey's cocoa powder. Nice thing is that I always have the ingredients on hand except the cream. I refrigerated it overnight and it makes 12 servings (all from an 8" round cake pan). I think it would be good garnished with fresh raspberries.

That looks wonderful, Sylvia! I made one end of Dec. that came out more like a flourless choc. brownie. It was fabulous. Yours looks like a real cake :)

It was good and also rich...but a flourless chocolate brownie sounds good, too!

Well, chocolate anything is good. :D

If you don't have espresso powder I think instant coffee will work. It looks so good that I am going to make it this week.

I told my daughter about this recipe (she also has celiac) and she's going to make it for her hubby's birthday in March. It's nice that something that tastes so good is also gluten-free.

I don't see why instant coffee wouldn't work instead of espresso...I don't have any of that either and didn't feel like buying something I had no use for otherwise.

This sounds great and I have been dieing for something like this, but I can not do dairy what would I use for the heavy cream.

Hmmm...don't know. What about the rest of the ingredients (chocolate)? I guess you could probably substitute Earth Balance for the butter.

For the topping, how about a raspberry sauce with fresh raspberries as a garnish? Or "ice cream"...like So Delicious or possibly a dairy-free whipped topping?

I would think you could use any milk sub like almond milk, maybe? I'd start with a little less than the recipe calls for and see how it thickens.
