While I’m at it, I continue on the quinoa trail once more and then I will stop for a while and that is a promise. It seems as if I just have to cleanse my quinoa system so that I can leave this subject and move on! So I yesterday evening I felt the urge to explore the possibilities of quinoa on the cake front, I knew that you can bake with quinoa flour but what about the whole grain? This is the result, a quinoa chocolate cake that is really fluffy, soft and tasty the same day you make it and little bit less the day after so eat it fast! Not that it is bad now but it was truly wonderful yesterday!

quinoa choclate cake


3 eggs
200 ml/0,85 cup sugar
75-100 g/2,6-3,5 oz salted butter
100 g/3,5 oz of dark chocolate
250 ml/1 cup cooked quinoa
300 ml/1,25 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cardamom, you can skip this if you want, I’m a cardamom addict so I love to put it wherever I can.

– Whip eggs and sugar for a couple of minutes.
– Melt the butter and the chocolate before adding it to the egg and sugar.
– Add the already cooked quinoa, stir well and add flour, baking powder and the ground cardamom.
– Pour it into a baking tin, I use silicon ones so I don’t have to grease them.
– Bake in a pre-heated oven (175°C/350°F) for 20-30 minutes.
– Eat.
