Gluten Free Amaretto & Chocolate Brownie Cake

Gluten Free Amaretto Chocolate CakeI baked this cake for my house mates birthday, and it is hands down one of the best cakes I have ever made. It is a little chewy like a brownie at the edges and a cross between a cake and brownie on the inside. However you have now been warned it is super sickly, so little piece at a time is the way forward.

Prep Time : 30m

Cook Time: 35-45m

Decorating: 15m

Serves: 12+
