Comfort Food : Gluten Free Chocolate Pound Cake



Baking for me is my friend who always listens to my heart, wipes my tears and I know
the minute the cake is baked I know my problem will be gone. My best and most trusted friend. 


Yesterday, the house seemed so quite Mannat was playing a chess tournament and I promised that I couldn’t keep calling and checking, Amanat had gone out with her father and Armaan was sleeping. Guess once they all fly from the nest I will always have my best friend “baking” and will bake up a storm while they lead there own lives away from me. 


Sharing my comfort food a very simple and plain chocolate cake perfect with a cup of coffee to make you smile while you enjoy your own silence.

Tip
  • Everything must be at room temperature including the cream cheese.
  • I use Flanders Mascarporne Cheese easily available at Modern Bazzar, Vasant Vihar. The Flanders Cheese Company have an inclusive outlet at Merchand Market.
  • I use my own BFMH gluten free flour blend but I am sure Bob Red Mill Gluten Free 
  • The quality of cocoa powder will effect the quality of the end product including the colour.
