Rainy Day Happiness

kaichronicles gluten free chocolate pudding cake recipe

Today has been one of those cold and extremely wet days, the kind that makes you want to stay inside and curl up with a hot cuppa and a good book.

Once again, I use these days as an excuse to eat warm, comforting food. Home made stew or soup with freshly baked bread or scones are excellent remedies for a stormy day. So is a hot, saucy chocolate pudding cake!!!

I whipped this up in no time and enjoyed it as a treat after dinner. It’s easy, yummy, gluten and dairy free and has little sugar compared to other desserts.

What’s your rainy day comfort food?

Saucey Chocolate Cake (gluten-dairy free)

This is my adaption of the classic Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding recipe that most families have in their collection. It’s very yummy even though it’s gluten free!!!

1 cup of  gluten free flour mix

1/4 cup of pure cocoa* gluten free

1 tsp of baking powder *gluten free

1/2 tsp of bicarb soda

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup of rice milk

2 TSBP veg or sunflower oil

1 tsp organic vanilla

Mix all the above in a casserole dish. Do not over-mix.


1/2 cup brown sugar with 1/4 cup of cocoa

Sprinkle over uncooked cake batter. Pour 2.5 cups of boiling water over batter, cover and bake at 175 C for 20 minutes or so. I find it best to remove the lid and bake for anther 10 minutes to be sure the cake is cooked. Remove from oven and let stand for 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
