    I made this cake using the Energy egg substitute for the 2 eggs. I used a standard buttercream frosting. It was fabulous!! Everyone who ate it was amazed at how it could taste so good and be gluten, egg and dairy free!

    I recently made this cake, and I was totally blown away with the taste, texture and great moisture content! In fact I am going to say that this is the BEST chocolate cake I have ever eaten, bar none!! I mean better than ANY regular OR gluten free chocolate cake!! Try it, and you will most likely be amazed too!
