I tinkered with this recipe until I found a gooey, soft, chocolate cake that really holds up as the real thing! Adapted from Solitude1972's recipe. Double the recipe for a two layer cake and bake in two pans!

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (1 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type AB (2 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type B (0 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type O (0 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (0 beneficials)

  • Dessert

  • 1/2 Ghee, butter, or substitute
  • 3/4 Agave Nectar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 Almond Milk (I used unsweetened cocoa flavored)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder (or 1 1/2 teaspoons soda)
  • 1/2 Good Quality Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 3/4 Cup Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Amaranth
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
    Note:OPTIONAL 1 teaspoon Xantham Gum (You don't need this, but it really improves the texture and keeps the cake from being crumbly. A definite must if serving this to others and trying to fool them with this cake)

How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. You can make this all in a food processor.
  3. Place in butter, agave, and eggs, blend til creamy
  4. Add Milk and Soda, blend again
  5. Add remaining ingredients, and blend.
  6. Pour into greased pan and bake 30-45.
  7. Let cool, remove from pan, and cool completely before icing.
