This luscious gluten free Dark Chocolate and Apricot Cake will be very hard to beat.

 

For this Dark Chocolate and Apricot Cake we will use ground almond which offers moist and a nutty flavour to our cake. When cooling, the cake might sink and create cracks on the surface. Worry not! This will be covered by the apricot jam and chocolate topping.

Dark chocolate and apricot are a simply divine combination which offers an incredible, sweet and tangy flavour.  Combined with the nutty almond flavour this cake might become your favourite treat.

 

Ingredients:
