Gluten-Free Chocolate and Pistachio Pound Cake Recipe

Gluten-Free Chocolate and Pistachio Pound Cake
Amie Valpone

Ingredients

  •   Cooking spray
  • 2 cups  brown rice flour
  • 1 cup  tapioca flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons  xanthan gum
  • 3/4 cups  cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons  chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup  pistachios, ground very finely
  • 2 cups  sugar
  • 4 teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  sea salt
  • 1/2 cup  coconut oil
  • 1 cup  almond milk
  • large eggs, preferably organic
  • 1 teaspoon  almond extract

This cake is delicious eaten alone or toasted for a few minutes in the oven. You could serve it with a bit of fresh fruit. Or a dollop of nut butter. Even a dab of jam. It’s simple, not too sweet, and purely delish. I loved recipe testing with brown rice and tapioca flour; gluten-free flours are so much fun to play with.

It rose perfectly in the oven and stayed moist all weekend long. Well, it didn’t last all weekend long... It was just that good. And no one could resist. I guarantee you’ll love this simple chocolate loaf. It’s my version of a chocolate cake just without all the fancy decorating and the bunt pan. There’s something to be said about a pound cake.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the flours, xanthan gum, cocoa powder, chia seeds, pistachios, sugar, baking powder, and sea salt.

In a separate bowl, combine the oil, almond milk, eggs, and almond extract.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well to combine.

Transfer the mixture to the loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool before serving.
