    Elana's Pantry's Note:

    This gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate cake (nut-free too) is a family favorite, with a thick, yummy chocolate frosting. This frosting recipe is one of my all time favorites –I have been known to eat it by the spoonful and like to spread it on crackers. The chocolate vegan frosting above is a nice complement to my vanilla cupcake recipe (made from almond flour) recently featured in the Denver Post. Go ahead and see for yourself on your next special occasion or for no reason at all! View the full recipe and others like it here:

      The icing was wonderful, but the cake turned out terrible. There was a gloopy fat layer on the bottem after it was done baking. I do believe there has to be more flour in this recipe, maybe it was a misprint. Not sure, but I won't be making the cake again, but definitely enjoyed the icing.
