The gas diffusion electrode includes a gas diffusion layer, an intermediate layer formed on the gas diffusion layer, and a catalyst layer formed on the intermediate layer. The intermediate layer has a crystal structure configured to serve as a crystal seed for the formation of the catalyst layer thereon. The method includes the steps of providing a gas diffusion layer; forming a intermediate layer on the gas diffusion layer, the intermediate layer having a crystal structure; and growing a catalyst layer on the intermediate layer by employing the intermediate layer as a crystal seed.
