  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes. Check after 35 minutes and if a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, remove it from the oven. The baking time may vary depending on your ingredients (if using gluten-free flour or not) and also on your oven.
  • Let the cake rest in the pan for 20 minutes. Use a butter knife to loosen the edges, remove the walls and transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool.

  • When it is completely cooled, use a serrated knife to cut it in two halves lengthwise.
  • To assemble the cake, spread 1/3 of the frosting on the bottom layer.
  • Cover with the other layer and press a bit so that everything is in place. Use the remaining mixture to frost the top of the cake. Decorate with chocolate flakes and place the cake in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving.

  • You may substitute the gluten-free flour mix with all-purpose flour in case you want to prepare some easy things to bake with gluten.
  • Cover the cake and you can keep it at room temperature for 3-4 days. In case you place it in the fridge, the eggless chocolate cake will remain smooth and tender for about 5-6 day.
