Valentine’s Day is next week and I have been getting some recipes ready! Chocolate is a staple for Valentines and you really can’t go wrong with the classic chocolate cake, especially this fudgy flourless chocolate cake! This chocolate cake has four simple ingredients: dark chocolate, butter, sugar and eggs. You simply melt the chocolate into the butter and mix it into the mixture of the sugar and eggs before pouring it into a pan and baking! The basic cake is simply divine but you can customize it by adding extras like vanilla extract, almond extract, peppermint extract, etc. or my personal favourite, some espresso powder! Because this is a flour-less cake it is nice and moist, dense and fudge like, pure chocolate-y bliss! If you are looking for a way to treat someone special this Valentine’s Day, this fudgy flourless chocolate cake is a great ways to go!
I like to serve it with fresh berries like raspberries, strawberries or blackberries!
Flourless Chocolate Cake
A super easy to make, rich and decadent fudgy flourless chocolate cake!
- 12 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 5 large eggs
- Melt the chocolate into the butter in a small sauce pan, before letting cool a little.
- Mix the sugar into the eggs and then mix it into the chocolate and butter mixture.
- Pour the batter into a greased 9 inch spring-form pan, wrap the bottom of the pan in foil, place in a larger pan with 1/2 inch of hot water and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, about 50-70 minutes, before removing and letting cool at room temperature before transferring to the fridge to chill.
Option: Add 1 tablespoon espresso powder!
