  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder * see note
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter or coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

For Frosting

  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup butter softened


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Spray oil in mini heart-shaped cake pans.
  • In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a smaller bowl, add the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Press the gluten free brownie batter into the heart pans.
  • Bake the cakes for 20 minutes until done.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool on a rack.
  • Add the frosting ingredients to a mixer and whip them up.
  • Place one cake on a plate and cover with frosting. Add the top layer, frost and decorate as you like.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter in the frosting.
  4. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the cake needs to bake longer.
  5. Allow cooling before frosting so your cake holds together better!
  6. This cake will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer
