Gluten-Free Dessert Ravioli

I was talking with my friend about how fun it would be to make a dessert ravioli a few days ago, and decided I wanted to make some for her. However, she has a gluten allergy! Hence, how the idea for gluten-free dessert ravioli was created.

The ravioli are comprised of gluten-free chocolate pasta, filled with orange-mascarpone, melted chocolate chips, and raspberry jam. I finished the pasta with some confectioner's sugar sprinkled on top.

I tried to make up the simplest possible gluten free chocolate pasta recipe-- the only expensive ingredient was the xanthan gum, but I only needed a little bit so I know it will last me a long time.

Step 1: Gather Dough Ingredients

For pasta dough:

1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbs potato starch
3/4 tsp salt
4 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
3 large eggs 
2 Tbs vegetable oil
3 Tbs cocoa powder

Step 2: Make Dough

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Make a well in the center-- add in eggs and oil. Scramble eggs with oil in the bowl, slowly incorporating more and more of the dry ingredients. Once mixed, knead the dough for a few minutes. Cover the dough with plastic wrap, and set it aside to rest while you make the filling.

Step 3: Gather Filling Ingredients

4 ounces mascarpone cheese
juice of half an orange
1 tsp orange zest
raspberry jam
mini chocolate chips (or white chocolate would probably be good, too!)

Step 4: Prepare Filling

Mix mascarpone cheese with orange juice and zest in a bowl. Set aside. Have chocolate chips and raspberry jam ready.

Step 5: Roll Pasta Dough

Take about 1/4 of the pasta dough and knead it a bit into a smaller ball. Sprinkle with potato starch, and, using a rolling pin, roll out dough very thin. (1/8- 1/16 inch thick) Cut dough into any shapes you want! I went with rectangles.

Step 6: Add Ravioli Filling

First, add a small dollup of mascarpone into the center of the ravioli. Next, add a few chocolate chips on top. Last, spoon on a small amount of jam.

Mmm, that looks good! Would it work without the tapioca flour? Could I substitute the mascarpone for something else? I have a gluten and dairy allergy. I hope I can try it!
That looks SO good! Thanks for sharing!
