Rich Chocolate Cake with Strawberries, Gluten-Free

Mix the following ingredients for baking the cake: 

- 300gr (2 cups) of rice flour (or other wheat-free flour), 
- 200 gr of brown sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 300g/2 cups of broken plain/semi-sweet chocolate or 150g/1 cup of dark (or 150g/ 1 cup of milk chocolate), plus extra to decorate (optional)
- 4 eggs
- 150 gr of salted butter, cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract (optional)
- 200 gr of boiling/hot water

I put all this into blender and mix.

Grease the tin for baking with cube of butter.

Bake for 45-50 min on 180 C.

After you take the cake out of the oven it will collapse in on itself or you can use a knife. Let it cool for few hours on a cake plate. It’s okay if the cake has slightly rough around the edges and cracks. The chocolate glaze and strawberries will hide it!

To top the cake:

- melt on a very low temp. 50gr of chocolate for the glaze [chocolate cubes, tablespoon of water, tablespoon of coconut oil (regular can work as well)]. Spread the glaze over the cake in thin chocolate layer.
- add immediately coconut flour (flakes) to merge hot chocolate layer with delicate coconut flakes. Flakes soak into the chocolate glaze perfectly!
- when you are ready to serve, add fresh strawberries on the top of the cake. I cut them on half. You can also use raspberries, or any other berries on top.

Bon appétit!

Generation Marc Jacobs -

The only way to pay was with social-media posts, what the brand called “social currency.” The woman at the checkout counter asked, “All set with your hashtag?”

Any properly hashtagged post got you a small bottle of Daisy, whether you had one follower or were clearing Hillary Clinton numbers. “Anyone with a smartphone can do it,” Park, the pregnant teacher, said.
