This delicious Small German Chocolate Cake ( 9 inch) satisfies any craving for the larger version you might have that’s made with 3 layers. With only two people in our house making a three layer German Chocolate Cake is pretty much out of the question.

Noooo , I’m not standing in the kitchen making a three layer cake that’ll hang around til like …Thanksgiving with just the two of us in the house.  This smaller version is easy, and delivers up all the flavor you’re looking for in a larger three layer German Chocolate Cake. Not only does it deliver in flavor and texture, it also happens to be gluten free.

Flourless (gluten free) cakes have been around for years in the form of Souffle cakes. They just really never came to the forefront until people started eating gluten free diets. Now I want you to think about this, flourless cakes, like I said have been made for years.

People didn’t make them because they were gluten free and on a gluten free diet, we didn’t even know what those words meant 20 years ago. People made flourless or souffle cakes because they were GOOD!  So, stop thinking this is a special diet cake and make it. You’re going to be very pleasantly surprised.  We’re going to make this delicious cake together so let’s gather the ingredients.

We start the recipe by greasing a 9 inch round cake pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper as well.  Set the pan aside and grab your food processor. Place the pecans, sugar, chopped chocolate, cocoa powder and baking soda in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse the ingredients in the food processor bowl until the nuts are ground.

When the nuts are ground ,add the eggs and vanilla to the processor bowl.  Process the ingredients until they are nearly smooth.  Spread the mixture into your 9 inch greased and parchment paper lined pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. After cooling for 10 minutes remove the cake from the pan to cool on a wire rack completely.  Keep the oven on at 350 degrees, we’ll be using it to toast the coconut and pecans for the topping. While we’re waiting for the cake to cool, let’s make the topping.
