These Flourless Cake Recipes Make Gluten-Free Desserts Real Easy To Love

Flourless baking has never tasted so good.

With so much attention on gluten-free diets and recipes these days, flour's been getting a bad rap. We'll defend flour any day -- we're just not going to do that here today. No, today we're going flourless all the way, and that's because sometimes flourless chocolate cakes can be even better than most others out there. We're also sensitive to the gluten-free needs of so many Americans, and are here to point out some great flourless recipes, among the flour-full recipes we also recommend. We're equal opportunists here at HuffPost Taste.

Whether you're gluten-free or simply out of flour in your kitchen, we've got you covered with a whole repertoire of great cakes. Newsflash: flourless cakes can be more than just chocolate. They're great with a hint of citrus like lemon or orange, and their base of ground nuts (almonds, hazelnut, pistachio) adds great flavor, too. Of course you can never go wrong with chocolate, but there's a whole world out there to explore. Here are 20 recipes that will convince you to go flourless for your next cake.
