For The Pound Cake:
2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup (105 g) all purpose gluten free flour (I used Better Batter)
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your blend already contains it)
1/4 cup (36 g) cornstarch (or try arrowroot or potato starch)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup (60 g) Dutch-processed cocoa powder (if you use natural cocoa powder, add 1/8 teaspoon baking soda)
16 tablespoons (224 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
9 ounces (252 g) eggs (from about 5 large eggs), at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup (2 fl. oz.) brewed coffee (or milk—but really consider the coffee!), at room temperature
For The Chocolate Glaze:
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup (2 fluid ounces) heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat your broiler to 325°F. Oil or line with material paper a standard 9-inch x 5-inch portion skillet and put it away.
In a little intensity safe bowl, place the slashed chocolate and dissolve in 30-second rushes in the microwave at 60% power until liquefied and smooth (or over a twofold evaporator).
Put the bowl to the side to momentarily cool. Into a medium-sized bowl, filter together the flour, thickener, cornstarch, and cocoa powder, then add the salt and speed to join well. Put the bowl away.
In the bowl of a stand blender fitted with the oar connection (or an enormous bowl with a hand blender), beat the margarine and sugar until the combination tumbles from the mixer in a lace when the oar is lifted (around 3 minutes).
Add the eggs, each in turn, and the vanilla, and beat again until all around consolidated. Then, add the chocolate and the fermented espresso, beating to join after every option.
At long last, with the blender on low, add the flour and cocoa powder combination gradually. Beat momentarily until recently joined. The player ought to be smooth and thickly pourable.
Empty the hitter into the pre-arranged dish, and smooth the top with a wet spatula. Place in the focal point of the preheated broiler and prepare until a toothpick embedded in the middle emerges without any than a couple of clammy scraps connected (around 60 minutes). Eliminate from the broiler and permit to cool in the prospect minutes prior to turning out onto a wire rack to totally cool.
Make the coating. Place the hacked chocolate in a little, heat-safe bowl. Place the cream and vanilla in a little pot and bring to a stew over medium-low intensity. Pour the hot cream over the cleaved chocolate and permit to sit until the chocolate starts to dissolve (around 1 moment).
Blend until the chocolate is dissolved and smooth. Pour the frosting over the cooled pound cake and spread into an even layer with a little counterbalanced spatula or huge blade. Permit to sit at room temperature until the coating is set. Cut thickly and serve.
