Cocoa Powder Question
Hi All --
I'm looking for a dessert recipe that I can make for a dinner party where two people have ingredient limitations (one is wheat free, and the other doesn't eat dairy). I also want the dessert to be cakelike, or something that can have a candle on it (i.e. no sorbets), as it's for a birthday. I think the recipe linked below for Flourless Chocolate Cake will work, but had a question about cocoa powder -- does it contain flour or gluten?
I'm also open to suggestions other than the flourless chocolate cake if you have any. Thanks!
Great choice. That's exactly what I would have suggested. No, cocoa doesn't contain gluten.
You'll have to sub non-dairy margarine (look for "pareve" on the label) for the butter, though. A minor reduction in flavour, but nothing that you can't live with. Serve with a raspberry coulis and, perhaps, some whipped cream for those who can have dairy.
