Advanced GAPS – Hazelnut Chocolate Cake

This GAPS cake is actually very much like a regular wheat based cake in texture and flavour with the added deliciousness that hazelnuts bring.

Great for special treats, birthday’s or when you have guests that you want to share a tasty afternoon tea with.

Dressing/Decorations

I cut mine in half and filled it with a layer of raspberries that I turned into a jam, by putting 1 & 1/2cups of frozen berries in a saucepan with a little water and simmering until thick, and a layer of  homemade vanilla sour cream.  I then topped it with more of the sour cream, with dollops of remaining raspberries on the top and using a knife to swirl together.  I then made a chocolate magic ice, with 3 TB of coconut oil and 1tsp of cocoa powder and 1tsp of honey, melted and mixed together and then dripped it over the cake.

I think it is safe to say that everyone was pleased with this cake.  In future I might try and use cherries instead raspberries to make a black forest version  – Christina
