Gluten Free Chocolate Crumb Cake

Posted on

This lighter chocolate crumb is cake is the perfect choice to bring to your next potluck or outing. It’s topped with a delicious chocolate crumb layer instead of the usual frosting so there’s less mess when serving this one at the picnic. The cake is very easy to throw together and transport since it’s baked and served in the same disposable pan. I’ve lightened it up by replacing half of the butter from my original recipe with low fat yogurt. Gluten free Bisquick makes it effortless to throw this together without the usual fuss involved in gluten free baking. Everyone is sure to love this fun chocolate crumb cake.

    I do try to make the desserts a little lighter but they can still kill the figure if you eat too much. And, a lot of my viewers prefer these dessert recipes over the food since most cakes and pies are off limits to gluten free people. So, I’ve been trying to time my desserts so that I can take them with me when I visit someone. I have? to keep the calories out of the house if you know what I mean.

    You’re like the best big sister ever. Mini chocolate chips work even better than the ones I used. It’s a? great idea to refrigerate the cake. It makes it so much easier to get nice slices. Hope you like it as much as we did.

    Me and my 7 & 4 yr old sisters made it last night! They thought making the crumb toppping was the best thing ever! Used Mini chocolate chips for the topping also,
    We kept it in the fridge overnight…… I just can’t wait to? try it 🙂

    I converted this recipe from a recipe I used prior to? finding out that I was allergic to gluten. In my original recipe in place of 2 cups GF Bisguick I used:
    2 cups of all purpose flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, and ½ tsp salt sifted together.
    If you want to use cake flour in place of the all purpose flour that should work out well too.

    If you? want to keep the recipe in this lighter version you can substitute applesauce for the yogurt. If you’re not concerned with keeping it lighter, you can use your lipid of choice. Coconut oil would probably work well.

    oooooh i was so excited for this! but i’m also dairy free and while i have a good dairy-free “butter”, i have? no idea what would be good in place of the yogurt :'(
