How To Store Gluten
Most dairy-free cakes are fine for several days stored at room temperature, as long as they are properly covered . UNLESS you live in a climate where your kitchen is very hot and humid if this is the case, definitely store your cake in the refrigerator. Also, if you decide to use a fresh fruit topping/filling or another dairy filling , please store your cake in the refrigerator.
Bring a refrigerated cake out 30 minutes prior to serving to warm up to room temperature.

How Do You Make Gluten Free Dairy Free Chocolate Cake
We start this cake by FIRST preparing the pan.
This cake gets baked in a water bath just like a cheesecake, so we need to prep the pan.
Youll want to use a 9 springform pan wrapped in foil and lined with liberally greased parchment paper. You can skip the foil wrap if you follow my pan prep for my cheesecake, but the foil route works just fine here.
That wrapped pan will go in a larger pan, which youll fill with water before baking. Set all the pans aside for now.
Youll melt the chocolate and butter together first to make the base, and then well do all the magic with the eggs.

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Chocolate Trifle
Posted on April 29, 2011 by glutenfreezen
Talk about comfort food. Cake, pudding, whipping cream, and a mixed berry sauce? And on top of it being delicious and decadent comfort food, it looks gorgeous!
I made this for our Easter get together. I think this is the first gathering that everything I made was completely gluten-free and dairy-free. It was nice because I usually try to accommodate the whole crowd. It helped that other people also brought things of course, but I think that the only allergen food we had, was an angel food cake that my mother-in-law brought at the request of my son because its his favorite. I am dairy-free and gluten-free but my husband and son are not. My goal for the future, hopefully over the next year or so, is to get us as close to a gluten-free and dairy-free house as I can, without people freaking out. Its a healthier way to live and there really isnt any reason to have it around when there are so many amazing and healthier alternatives out there.
I kept forgetting to take pictures as I went along, so theyre sporadic at best.
This trifle proves that you can live a dairy-free and gluten-free life, have your cake, and eat it too.

Can You Freeze Cake
Of course, nobody bakes a cake the day of the party, so Im sure you are wondering, can this allergy-friendly cake be frozen? The short answer is yes! You can bake the layers and freeze them, take the cake out of the freezer the day of the party, make the dairy-free frosting, and assemble it.
Want to save more time? Make the entire cake and freeze it, whole, and take it out the night of the party. If you have room in your freezer, then why not? Thawing out this cake does not affect its delicious texture and flavor, and youll save yourself a lot of time.
I know that making an allergy-friendly cake from scratch can seem overwhelming -where do you even find the ingredients? Well, for starters, you are probably using most of them already so know that they are often easy to swap for another brand. This recipe is not brand specific.
For most people with severe food allergies, using a mix out of the box isnt an option, so this version allows you to select your favorite gluten-free flour.
Youll also find that the use of chocolate non-dairy milk gives this cake a moist, rich texture that will bring everyone back for seconds. You can find this dairy-free option in the refrigerated section of your grocery.

The probiotic strand we chose for our CHOCOBiotics® probiotic chocolate is Bacillus coagulans, or GanedenBC30®, to be specific. This special probiotic is gluten-free, dairy-free, organic compliant, kosher, halal, non-GMO verified, and of course, vegan. Studies on bacillus coagulans are published in multiple peer reviewed journals for its beneficial effect on the digestive and immune systems. Its one of the few vegan probiotics shown to survive the digestive system, making it a perfect fit for our chocolate delivery system.

Is Dark Chocolate Dairy Free
Out of all the different types of chocolate, dark chocolate is the most likely to be dairy-free. If youre following a dairy-free diet, look for dark chocolate, then review the ingredients list to find out if that product contains dairy.
You might be wondering if there is milk in dark chocolate, and again, that will depend. The darker or the higher the percentage of cacao that is in the chocolate, usually that means the less likelihood of milk being in that chocolate product.
The Perfect Birthday Cake
This recipe is the perfect way to kick-off my birthday month with a deliciously decadent chocolate birthday cake.
Now, its a birthday tradition of mine to always have a mint chocolate something on my actual birthday. Previously, I made these Mini Skillet Brownies with Fresh Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. But its quite involved. So Im thinking something slightly easier this year. My birthday is the last day of the month, so Ive still got a few weeks.

Is Dark Chocolate Vegan
As I mentioned above, just because chocolate only really NEEDS chocolate solids, sugar, and cocoa butter, that doesnt mean that all chocolate is vegan or doesnt add dairy or animal products to it.
Its more likely for you to find a vegan dark chocolate than a milk chocolate, due to the nature of dark chocolate needing less of a creamy or milky flavor than other types of chocolate. Look at the ingredient lists to determine if the brand youre looking at is in fact vegan and safe for your vegan diet if you follow one.

Tips For Making The Best Gluten
- Dont skip softening your butter. Take the butter out of the refrigerator and allow to soften on the counter for 10-15 minutes.
- I always use a greased cookie scoop. I use a 1 Â½ tablespoon cookie scoop.
- I also like to use Reynolds Kitchens Cookie Baking Sheets. It has a smart grid that makes it super easy to line up your cookies on your baking sheet.

Can These Cookies Be Frozen
Freezing cookie dough is so easy! The best way to freeze this cookie dough is to freeze a portion of the dough on a baking sheet just like you are making cookies. Then place them in the freezer to flash freeze for 10 minutes.
Once the cookies are flash-frozen , place the cookie dough balls into a freezer bag. Frozen raw cookie dough can actually last 6 months in the freezer.
You do not need to thaw the cookie dough before you bake them. You may need to bake the cookies for an extra minute or two, so please watch your cookies.

Pro Tip For Measuring Gluten
It is super important to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients to measure gluten-free flour. I measure the gluten-free flour with the spoon & level method.
I use a large spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup. Then I use the back of a knife to level off the top of the measuring cup.
Please do not scoop the flour directly out of the bag with your measuring cup. If you do, you could end up with more flour than is called for in the recipe.
Allergy Friendly Since 2005
We developed our all natural chocolate as a result of our daughter Amandas life-threatening food allergy to dairy and egg products. We did not want her to miss out on all the chocolate holiday treats, or the everyday events that include chocolate like baking cookies.
We started making chocolate that is totally free of the top 14 food allergens and Amanda loved it! We shared our chocolate with friends who have children with food allergies and the response to the great taste and safe ingredients was overwhelmingly positive, so we decided to offer these treats to everyone.
The purity of Amandas Own dairy-free, nut-free, peanut-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, egg-free, corn-free, sesame-free, mustard-free, shellfish-free, crustacean-free, sulfites-free and lupin-free is of the greatest importance to us, as the safety of our child and yours depends on it.
