Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

This is a GO-TO recipe for me. It's SO decadent, SO easy, & I'm a chocoholic so it's everything I could ever need in this crazy world.


R E C I P E


ingredients:

2/3 cup of chocolate chips of your choosing (I use a mixture of semi sweet/dark)

1 stick of unsalted butter

3/4 cup white sugar

3 eggs (farm fresh baby)

1/2 cup of cocoa powder (sifted)**


directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 & line a 8" round with parchment paper

  • Grab your butter & chocolate and start melting together in either a microwave for 30 second intervals, or on a double boiler, mixing the entire time. Use a large bowl.

  • Once melted, remove from heat (or the microwave) and add in the sugar.

  • Whisk whisk whisk the sugar. It's going to look grainy. That's ok. Keep mixing.

  • After 2 min of mixing, start adding the eggs. ONE AT A TIME. Add egg. Mix until you can't see any of it, and then add another.

  • Once the 3rd egg hits, it'll start to become this beautiful, luscious, smooth texture. You're going to want to eat it then & there. Don't.

  • Then, add the cocoa powder. CAREFULLY fold. You don't know how many times I've gotten cocoa all over myself. **I know you probably don't sift, I usually don't. But this is a recipe that you should sift, just to get those little cocoa balls all evened out. If you don't want to sift, just take a clean hand and rub away those cocoa balls so you don't end up with dry spots in your cake**

  • Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake for 25/28 minutes. It'll get crackled a bit on the top.

  • Let cool in the pan. It bakes in the pan for a little.

  • After 20 min cooling time, flip out of the pan & serve.

It's amazing with vanilla ice cream, or alone. I have the capability of eating the entire thing, but that's a talent. It's very rich so most people have a very little sliver. It's a versatile recipe, perfect for some classy dinner, or a quiet movie night at home.
