paleo gluten free chocolate soufflés

paleo gluten free chocolate souffle recipe

Soufflés are quickly becoming my back-pocket dessert. They are surprisingly easy to make, can be prepared in advance, and are sure to wow even the pickiest dessert eater.

Lately I've been obsessed with creating a gluten-free, grain-free paleo version of my favorite chocolate soufflé.

One of my favorite moments from attending the International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) up in Seattle, actually happened one morning before the conference. My roomie and friend, Annelies, and I have started a tradition of exploring local bakeries that are exploring-distance from the conference location. When we are feeling extra motivated, we run to our destination, but other times, we take a leisurely stroll. 

It's on these bakery expeditions that we see the city, sleepy-eyed and dewy as a new day takes shape.

I have exciting news! The fabulous Jeanne Sauvage, author of the popular blog Art of Gluten-Free Baking, is coming to Zest for a book-signing party! Her new book, Gluten-free Baking for the Holidays contains 60 essential gluten-free recipes focused around traditional holiday treats.

"Another great dinner with the Paleo Cooking Club... If you call it a club, people will want to join." So read my friend's status on facebook.

And she was right. As soon as she called it a club I wanted in. I wanted to know the secret handshake, get the matching t-shirt, and memorize and recite our mission statement. This cooking club was particularly appealing because we knew we could count on the dinner being gluten free. Win!

Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! What did you do for your sweetie? In typical baker fashion, I made Patrick a cake.

But not just any cake, an epic 5 3/4" cake of towering awesomeness. Imagine if you will, layers of rich dark devils food, paired with their polar opposite, light and fluffy angel food cake. Then intersperse layers of creamy peanut butter and nutella mousse. Then frost that bad boy with a devilishly thick layer of chocolate nutella ganache.
