Gluten Free Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe

I was given a challenge recently – create an entire gluten free holiday meal, appetizer to dessert, using San-J Tamari in every recipe.  This Gluten Free Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe became a part of that.

It was an easy challenge to rise to, as I love Tamari and use it often in dishes to create depth of flavor, as well as savory umami to dishes, both Asian and not.

But in dessert? You might be surprised to know that tamari intensifies the taste of chocolate and brings out the butterscotch notes in vanilla, as well as adds much needed balance of subtle salt to sweet dishes.

This cake is a show stopper that is also really easy – it starts with gluten free cake mix, but trust me, no one will know you took this shortcut.

Pumpkin, chocolate, easy, and beautiful – how great is that?

  • Gluten free non-stick cooking spray

  • ½ plus 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips divided
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon San J tamari
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    very tasty, a little on the dry side which surprised me with the pumpkin. I baked at 30 minutes at 350, the batter is very thick so you need to spread it with a spatula evenly in your pan. My grandson is lactose intolerant so I also used Almond milk and oil in the chocolate..
    A good recipe for gluten, dairy and nut free. I think the idea is to make a ganache to pour over the cake, you could also thin with cocoa butter, add a bit of vanilla if using a bitter chocolate.
