If you are looking for the best chocolate cake for dessert or as a coffee cake? Look no further because this cake is rich, moist, full of flavor. Besides the Oreo’s this cake is gluten free.
The bundt cake is making a come bake. When I was a little girl we would have bundt cake at our house all the time.
We would hang around the kitchen just for that one moment to clean the whisks. The bundt was always the most exciting bake because of the shape and whether or not it would come out of the cake mold in one piece.
The secret is to wait at least 15 minutes to let the cake cool off before trying to remove the cake from the mold. Non stick will also help in this process.
There would always be raisins in the bundt and they would always end of in one place no matter how hard my mother tried. No raisins in this cake but I might use them in a future recipe.
Getting a new bundt mold brought back a lot of memories. As you may have noticed I like to bake with fruit and what is so great about this cake is it contains apple but it does not tastes like apple cake.
It just adds to the richness of the cake. A trick I learned from my mother to prevent a cake from going dry was to add apple to her cakes.
She would add whole pieces of apple but I grate the apple so it will dissolve inside the cake.

If you want to make this chocolate bundt cake recipe you need the following ingredients:
- cocoa powder
- rice flour
- coconut oil

In this recipe I used 6 Oreo’s but you can add as many as you like (Warning! Only use if you are gluten tolerant, if you are gluten intolerant leave them out).
Leave them a little chunky so you can still see them in the chocolate bundt cake. To decorate sprinkle icing sugar on the bundt.
How to make chocolate bundt cake
If you want to make this chocolate bundt cake recipe start with grating the apple. The next step is to melt the coconut oil. You can do this in the microwave or in a pan.
Whisk the eggs and add the milk and the coconut oil in a big bowl. Add the grated apple and apple sauce set aside.
Pre heat the oven on 375℉/180℃. Put the flour, baking soda, espresso powder, cocoa powder and the coconut sugar in another bowl. Whisk through thoroughly.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until all the dry ingredients are covered.
Note!! Put the Oreo’s between parchment paper and use a rolling pin to break the Oreo’s. Add the Oreo’s to the batter (Note only if you are gluten tolerant!!!).
Spray a bundt mold with cooking spray and flour before adding the batter to the mold. Bake the bundt cake for 35-45 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
Gluten free flours. If you are gluten intolerant and do not have rice flour you can substitute this flour for:
- Almond flour
- Sorghum flour
- Corn starch
If you are gluten tolerant you can use any type of flour for this recipe. Still my first choice is rice flour but if you have no rice flour try:
- Spelt flour
- Wheat flour
- All purpose flour
