Most people do not have a clear idea of what gluten is, but they still feel better when they avoid it. More and more grocery stores boast gluten-free products. This is good news for people with celiac disease, but paradoxically, a large proportion of people looking for gluten-free products do not suffer from this condition.
Gluten is a type of protein that is normally found in wheat and other grains, such as barley and rye. But, gluten is also hidden in many other products, such as salad dressings, spice mixes, vitamins and even lip balm, which means that its complete elimination requires a great deal of commitment. There are many people who, although they claim to have completely given up gluten, have eliminated only wheat-based products, such as bread, pasta and pretzels, and are convinced that these are the only sources.
People with celiac disease should completely eliminate gluten from their diet. Even a small amount of gluten triggers symptoms, including abdominal pain and bloating. This is because in people with celiac disease, gluten causes the immune system to damage or destroy the villi, the small protrusions that cover the small intestine.
However, people who do not have celiac disease can also benefit from a gluten-free diet if they have intolerance or sensitivity to it. Although not compared to celiac disease, gluten sensitivity can cause embarrassing reactions to the body or flu-like symptoms, gastrointestinal problems and fatigue. At this time, there is no universally accepted test for testing gluten sensitivity, and symptoms may be associated with other conditions, including stress. If you think you have a sensitivity to gluten, avoid it and monitor your health.
You must not forget that there are whole grains that are naturally gluten free. This way you can replace pasta with rice (brown, red, black or wild), quinoa or fried organic corn. Fresh vegetables and fruits, beans, lentils, and nuts do not contain gluten.
Because it's a gluten-free chocolate cake, we have to replace wheat flour with something else. In our recipe you can find cocoa powder. Otherwise you only need butter, eggs and sugar. Simple ingredients that you probably already have at hand. Butter should be greasy, with 80% fat. Do not put margarine, possibly you can put oil.
In order for the flourless chocolate cake to grow, you don't need a growth agent, but you have to beat the eggs very well together with the sugar. Eggs must at least double in volume and be aerated like foam. Carefully incorporate the chocolate. It is enough for the ingredients to be incorporated and you can stop.
The recipe for flourless chocolate cake is perfect for all those who love desserts with a lot of chocolate. We at Bemorepanda love chocolate. The truth is that the taste of chocolate is incomparable and that the desserts that contain it are the best and most decadent. This recipe is also ideal for those who have gluten intolerance.

Notes: You can choose to use almond flour. Almond flour is made from very, very finely ground almonds and is perfect for macarons, but also for any other desserts. You can also grind the almonds, but such a fine flour will not come out. Instead of almonds you can also put ground walnuts, hazelnuts or ground peanuts. If you want you can also use gluten-free flour from the market, that works very well, but it is not found everywhere.
