Semisweet Chocolate Coconut Brownie / Torte Recipe
GF Recipe Summary
Gluten-Free Semisweet Chocolate Coconut Brownie / Torte: Incredible taste and texture in a semisweet rich chocolate brownie / torte with coconut accents.
This is a thicker, denser, chocolaty brownie / torte with a hint of coconut that is excellent served slightly warm or at room temperature. This gluten free recipe holds up well too, and the taste and texture remain fine even after a week in our tests. This recipe would have been in our Gluten-Free & Wheat-Free Gourmet Desserts book, but sadly it didn't make the publication cutoff date — so here it is now!
