Flourless Rich & Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe

Friday, July 23, 2010
If you're like me and cake isn't actually your favorite dessert because it's too fluffy and empty, then you might be like me too in liking cake that's thicker, more dense and more moist. Here's an amazing flourless chocolate cake recipe I tried out over the weekend. It's so sinful. You'll love it, promise!

Flourless Rich & Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe
Look at the texture! Makes me want to drool
4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate cake makes me happy!
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch round cake pan (I didn't have a round cake pan so I used my pie dish), and dust with cocoa powder.
  2. In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt chocolate and butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes (but keep checking back after 30 minutes). If the cake is still really wobbly in the center it's not done yet. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. 

Tip: for an extra chocolate rush, replace all cocoa powder with chocolate squares. This gives you a richer, creamier and smoother cake (though the original recipe is pretty amazing in itself!)

I wish I had more of it. It got eaten up so quickly :(

Wish there was more...

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this treat!
