The other day I needed to make a delicious dessert for a get together with girls.
I decided to give a flourless chocolate cake a try.
That turned out to be a very good decision.
Easy to make, you can make this as fancy or as simple as you like with a few garnishments.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2/3 cup sugar
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Chop baking chocolate into small pieces. Set aside.
Beat eggs until light and fluffy (a couple minutes). Add melted butter. Mix in cocoa and sugar, then chocolate pieces.
Spray a springform pan or round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cut a piece of parchment to fit in the bottom of the pan then spray it with the non-stick spray.
Pour batter into pan and bake about 30 minutes or until cake is set but still a little jiggly in the middle.
Remove from oven and let cool completely before inverting on serving plate.
Top with ganache, frosting, dust with powdered sugar, dollop with whipped cream or eat plain.
It is really rich and a little piece goes a long way.
