Amy’s Kitchen has added a line of cakes to their great selection of natural health food products. Out of their cake line they have 2 varieties of vegan chocolate cakes. One is gluten-free and the other is not. I chose just to try the gluten-free one for now. Although I was turned off with the whole $1 more it cost over the wheat flour (gluten) version.
Amy’s Chocolate Gluten-Free Cake is super moist, tender and rich. This is a cake you can serve to anyone gluten-intolerant or not and they will be amazed. It is very chocolaty and light. And very good.
I love frosting and often feel a cake is incomplete without it. This cake does not have frosting, but it is so good it is even great without it. I was thinking it would be great to add some frosting to decorate it up for company or a birthday. It comes in a 9″ loaf form and comes perfectly shape, smooth and looks good enough to serve even not decorated.
It is very easy to prepare, if you have a little bit of patience. Amy’s Chocolate Gluten-Free Cakes come frozen. To prepare all you have to do is remove it from the box and stick it in the refrigerator for about 2 and ½ hours to defrost. After what probably seems like forever to eat chocolate cake all you have to do is slice and eat. It doesn’t have to be cooked or anything, just slice and enjoy. You can heat it a little, by the slice, if you want but it does not at all need it. I wouldn’t doubt that this cake would even be good right out of the freezer. Only the fact that I devoured a chocolate bar before that I was able to put the cake in the fridge and let it defrost without bothering it.
Amy’s Chocolate Gluten-free Cake is made with rice flour, instead of wheat, and has 180 calories, 7 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein per serving. The problem is that there are technically 6 servings per cake loaf and more likely less servings in your mind once you take a bite and can’t stop eating.
You don’t need to be gluten-free or vegan to enjoy Amy’s Gluten-free Chocolate Cake. I already have plans to buy another to serve it for a family members birthday. I have no doubt they will enjoy it and not notice that it is wheat-free or egg and dairy free.
