Chocolate Fridge Cake – Gluten and Dairy Free


Yields9 ServingsPrep Time5 minsTotal Time5 minsCategoryCuisineCooking Method, Diet, , , Tags, ,

Chocolate Fridge Cake is something I enjoyed as a child. The taste and smell is extremely evocative. I simply wanted to create a version of my childhood favourite that worked for those who cannot tolerate gluten (like me) and dairy.

 5 Nutribrex (can use Weetabix or Oatibix for a gluten version)
 200 g soft dates
 150 g chopped nuts or seeds
 30 g cacao or cocoa powder
 35 g maple syrup
 120 g dark chocolate


Blend all ingredients except the dark chocolate in a food processor to a crumb-like texture


Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a small saucepan of boiling water.


Push the the contents of the food processor into a 20cm by 20cm, linked baking tin using the palms of your hands.


Pour over the melted chocolate and spread evenly.


Leave in the fridge for 3-4 hours before cutting into 9 portions.

      Oats might work but may not stick together very well. If you try this then please do share your results so others can benefit.
