I frosted it with Sugar Free Swiss Meringue Buttercream from domestifluff aka Kristen. Not sure if I can post it here or if she comes here (does she?) I found this on pinterest and I am blown away by this frosting.

Rosethorn the flavor of your cake is amazing. Didn't rise as tall as I expected but after frosting it and stacking it. I think it is really pretty. A great birthday cake!

My husbands quote: This cake exceeded my expectation, wow it is really great! I agree
It's amazing. I would love to know how to get that frosting recipe Anita.
It looks luscious!!!!!!!!!


Soooooooo Pretty Too. I love this cake I make it for y birthday too.
And it freezes well.

I am blown away with how moist this is. My husband said he expected it to be dry and this is far from dry and he said he loves it.

Esther - I don't how I missed this when you posted it, but you're cakes look wonderful, too!

I have made the original chocolate mayo cake with vital wheat gluten before but I like your changes.

My daughter called me last week to see if I had a recipe for a chocolate cake. She has a friend who has gestational diabetes and wanted to surprise her with a birthday cake she could eat. I remembered this recipe. We made it this afternoon...OMG! Not only is it delicious but it makes a beautiful cake. We put most of the batter in a tube pan and then made half a dozen cupcakes. Thank you so much for the recipe...it is a keeper!

Can anyone explain the difference to me between the oat flour and oat fiber? Can the fiber be used instead of the flour? TIA!

I made these just last night and used the batter to make cupcakes. They are so yummy. I would post pics, but I can't yet. They looked beautiful.

I ate one unfrosted and enjoyed it. I put some in the fridge and froze the rest (one instance of the recipe gave me 22 cupcakes). I plan to top them to suit my moods: pb frosting, cream cheese frosting, buttercream, sf jam...I'm making myself hungry

Thanks again, Esther, for making the GF

Oat flour is from old fashioned oats ground up in a blender.

Oat fiber is made from only fiber and reacts differently it swells up and needs liquids.

Gluten free oat flour is that everythings is done in manufacturing not to contaiminant while processong.

Scorgio you should check out the BTF (better than flour ) thread. It is marvelous what Ouizoid did with the ingredients to make an amazing recipe. Using Oat fiber and coconut flour and more. Amazing.

Esther your cake looks amazing!! I have made the original before but since going wheat free I haven't made it. I saved your recipe for a special occasion. Thank you for sharing it!!

Skeeter, thanks for sharing the buttercream frosting, I love chocolate cake with white frosting. I googled the name of the frosting and saved it. It looks really yummy!!

Thanks, Esther I was under the impression one had to be an LCF member for at least 30 days to post pics here. I'm still a little short of that. Isn't that so?

Guys,

Has anyone figured out the nutrition stats on this recipe? Calories, fat, carbs, protein?

Thanks in advance.

Tracy

So anyone know the nutrition stats on this?? I like to keep track if what I eat, calorie and carbs, especially.

It is yummy! I made 22 cupcakes and I have topped it with the following so far:

-homemade chocolate frosting (made with butter, melted SF chocolate chips & HWC) with a smear of pb on top
-a tablespoon or so of softened cream cheese (from the tub) sweetened with liquid sucralose (1 squeeze) with a little SF strawberry jam.

I nuke the cupcake (before adding topping) for about 15 seconds to warm it up. So yummy!

Tracy

Warning: I'm a little feeble at MasterCook.
The figures I got did not include erythritol, Splenda, DaVinci or EZ Sweetz because I've never plugged them into MasterCook for nutritional analysis
I assumed 16 servings from this recipe.

So with those disclaimers, Esther's original recipe posted on this thread comes to:
320 calories per 16 servings
29g fat
10g total carbs (that's with heavy cream and not almond milk)
4g fiber for 6g net carbs
9g protein
