There is no wrong way to serve a chocolate cake! But, the best way is with a pure chocolate glaze made from scratch. If you are a chocolate lover, you will love this gluten-free chocolate dessert not only because of how delicious it is but because it is healthier. This is a basic grain-free chocolate cake recipe, made with almond flour adding more protein and fiber, and as a sweetener, I used bananas with maple syrup eliminating refined sugar. What I love the most about this dessert is, all you taste is heavenly chocolate. This is a simple every day gluten-free chocolate dessert. To make this bundt cake extra special add vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream with berries. Enjoy!
