You have never met Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake like this before. Extra fudgy topped with a chocolate glaze spiked with Kahlua, this dessert is rich and indulgent. Move over chocolate brownies, because this Chocolate Brownie Cake is more than just a brownie.

This gluten-free dessert is a grain-free brownie filled with walnuts, a hint of coffee and topped with unapologetic rich Kahlua chocolate glaze.

This Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake is one of those gluten-free desserts we should always keep in our fridge because it is that good! If you don’t want to add Kahlua to the glaze, you can replace it with cream and vanilla.

Either way, this gluten-free chocolate dessert is extra special. Sometimes we long for something sweet and chocolaty, and this chocolate brownie cake will hit the spot every time.

gluten-free chocolate brownie cake ingredients

In this Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake recipe, the ingredients are simple. Almond flour and arrowroot or tapioca flour, baking soda, butter, coconut sugar or golden brown sugar, eggs, coffee, vanilla and walnuts.

The best part, these are basic naturally gluten-free ingredients you most likely already have in your pantry.

Why add coffee to a brownie cake?

Coffee is another way to set this gluten-free brownie cake apart from most. Yes, the coffee is optional. However, the coffee adds to the richness of the chocolate, making this brownie cake insanely delicious! Use decaffeinated coffee if you are concerned about the caffeine.

The chocolate glaze takes just minutes to make. You will need chocolate chips, butter, honey, vanilla, and the flavourful Kahlua to make the glaze. The Kahlua adds another level of deliciousness to this already delectable dessert.

To make this Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake looking extra special, I used a non-stick bundt pan. I love using this pan because the cake looks pretty, it is easy to slice and fun to decorate with the chocolate glaze.

If you don’t have a bundt cake pan, no problem, use an 8 by 8-inch baking pan.

the Kahlua spiked chocolate glaze

You will love this chocolate glaze recipe because it is super easy to make and so flavourful. You will need a double boiler or two pots. One is partially filled with water and the other with the chocolate glaze ingredients.

The water should be super hot but not boiling, place the other pot over the water without touching the water. Stir the ingredients until the chocolate is melted and smooth. The chocolate sauce should still be warm when you pour it over top of the cooled cake.

I don’t like my desserts to look perfect in terms of decorating them. I prefer when the dessert looks rustic and inviting, this is why I poured the chocolate glaze over the cake and let it run down the sides. The more chocolate glaze, the better…YUM!
