Published 22 January, 2007

This gluten free chocolate recipe takes about 15 minutes to prepare, zero minutes to cook and is ready to eat in 3 hours chilling time (although the desperate could stick it in the freezer to chill and half the time).

Gluten Free Chocolate Cherry Nut No Cook Cake

125g butter or dairy free margarine
75g golden syrup
200g dark chocolate
150g gluten free plain biscuits
50g whole walnuts
50g sultanas
50g dried cherries

Line a 20x8cm loaf tin with greaseproof paper.

Melt the butter or dairy free margarine with the syrup, over a low heat until the begin to gently boil.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a pan suspended in boiling water. Take care to avoid getting water into the chocolate otherwise it affects the setting. When the chocolate is melted and the butter and syrup hot, combine into one bowl.

Break the biscuits up into large chunks and the broken biscuits, walnuts, sultanas and cherries
to the liquid mixture. Mix thoroughly to ensure everything is coated with chocolate, then pour into the lined loaf tin. Chill for 3 hours and cut into 1cm slices to serve.

This recipe is really, really easy, and makes a very high class gluten free dessert or sweet treat. No-one will believe this tasty treat is "special" and doesn't contain any gluten nasties, egg or if using dairy free marg, is vegan too.

Enjoy!
