Basic Gluten Free Chocolate Bundt Cake

  • Author: Regan Jones, RD
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings
  • Diet: Gluten Free




  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup powdered sugar, divided


  1. Make the Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a Bundt cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together baking mix and cocoa.
  3. In large bowl of a stand mixer or using an electric hand mixer, beat sugar, butter and oil until well blended and lighter in color, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  4. Beat in cocoa mixture and water alternately, beginning and ending with cocoa mixture.
  5. Spread batter into prepared Bundt pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  7. Remove cake from oven, and let cake cool in pan on a wire cooling rack, about 30 minutes. Once mostly cool, invert onto a plate.
  8. Make the Ganache: Combine chocolate and 1/2 cup cream in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval (be careful not to overcook) until melted and smooth. Whisk in 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Whisk in enough remaining cream and sugar to achieve smooth consistency and desired degree of sweetness. Drizzle over cooled Cake.


*To make this cake I used King Arthur Flour’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix. This is different from both the King Arthur Measure for Measure and their all-purpose blend. The baking mix worked really, really well in this cake — nice texture, not crumbly; just right for cake. If you’re planning to make this cake at home, I encourage you to buy the King Arthur Baking Mix as I’ve found that variations in which flour blend you use can produce very different results.
