If you like chocolate this gluten free dark chocolate loaf cake is for you.
It is rich and delicious and oh so very good. Next time I make this I will be freezing some of it because I ate way to much of it when I made it a few weeks ago.
And the picture of this loaf cake does not do it justice. When I posted the picture on facebook several readers asked why it was blue or purple. Between the lighting and the deep dark chocolate it is hard to tell what this was like, but believe me it was really good.
