  • Author: Carolina Rojas
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 90 grams (~3 oz) of butter (approximately 1/2 cup) at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Baking Chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of rice flour or quinoa flour
  • 3 Tbsp of potato starch
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp of tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Butter a round mold of about 26 cm / 10 in (you can replace it with one of 24 cm / 9.5 in also).
  3. Beat the butter in a bowl or in the mixer until it is creamy (2 minutes approx).
  4. Then add the sugar and beat until creamy, for about 5 to 8 minutes (do not beat less than that time, because otherwise it will not achieve the consistency we are looking for).
  5. Add the melted chocolate, and then the eggs one by one.
  6. Unite everything very well.
  7. Mix all the dry ingredients and gradually add them to the butter mixture, as well as also gradually adding the milk and water. You then add a little bit of dry ingredients and some milk, then some dry ingredients and water, and so on, repeating until finished.
  8. Pour the mixture into the mold and bake for about 30 minutes.
  9. For the ganache: Melt the chocolate, butter and cream.
  10. Cover the cake with the ganache and place the berries on top.
