GAPS Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

This recipe is only for those full gapsters that have progressed to the point of having no digestive problems. I like to call that stage advanced GAPS. So if you have reached that stage, why not give this recipe a try and tell me what you think.
This GAPS cake is actually very much like a regular wheat based cake in texture and flavour with the added deliciousness that hazelnuts bring.

Great for special treats, birthday’s or when you have guests that you want to share a tasty afternoon tea with.


  • 150 grams Hazelnut Meal
  • 1 cup Almond Meal
  • ½ cup Honey
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 10 Eggs
  • 1 TB vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ -1/2 cup of Dutch Cocoa powder.


  1. Preheat over to 180 C and grease cake tin.
  2. Put all ingredients in a food processor or thermomix and mix until combined
  3. Pour into prepared cake tin
  4. Bake for 50 mins, let cool in tin before turning out.




I cut mine in half and filled it with a layer of raspberries that I turned into a jam, by putting 1 & 1/2cups of frozen berries in a saucepan with a little water and simmering until thick, and a layer of  homemade vanilla sour cream.  I then topped it with more of the sour cream, with dollops of remaining raspberries on the top and using a knife to swirl together.  I then made a chocolate magic ice, with 3 TB of coconut oil and 1tsp of cocoa powder and 1tsp of honey, melted and mixed together and then dripped it over the cake.

I think it is safe to say that everyone was pleased with this cake.  In future I might try and use cherries instead raspberries to make a black forest version  – Christina
