We have been trying out some new gluten free recipes the past couple of weeks.

Who doesn't love a good old slab of gluten free cake? No bloating which means more room for... more cake!

In store we now have gluten free cake EVERYDAY! We are so proud and happy that we can offer this everyday of the week for all of you cake lovers who've been missing out.

This was a recipe I tried out last week - with only 5 ingredients too. As a huge lover of chocolate and coconut together, I was not going to let you all miss out on how it was made.

So without further ado.

What you will need.

Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Cake

6 tablespoons of butter

255 grams dark chocolate - 85% is best.

6 eggs

120 grams caster sugar

Handful of coconut

Until it goes all silky and smooth.

 Just like this bowl of chocolatey goodness.

   Separate the egg whites from the yolks.

 Now add a spoonful of the chocolate mixture into the yolks... Strange I know but when you add the eggs to the warm chocolate this could create scrambled eggs... not a good start.

 Now add the eggs to the chocolate mixture, now that it is scrambled egg free.

 Give it all a good mix.

 Pop the eggs into to bowl and mix away. You want them to become a little foamy. Like this.

 Now add in the sugar slowly as you mix.

 Until you get these amazing meringuey peaks.

Add the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, slowly but surely.

 Add in a handful of coconut - or a little more if you wish. If you're feeling wild why not toast it first in a dry pan until they turn a golden brown?

 Pop into a 8" cake tin at 140 and bake for 45 mins.

  Leave to cool and decorate as you wish.

 I used a chocolate ganache and some coconut sprinkled on top.
