🍫 Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe 🍰
Flourless Chocolate Cake
You will need:
- 200g high-quality dark chocolate
- 200g unsalted butter
- 200g granulated sugar
- 5 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- Cocoa powder for dusting
- Start by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F) and greasing a 9-inch round cake pan.
- In a heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together over a pan of simmering water. Stir until smooth, then remove from heat.
- In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.
- Gradually fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, ensuring it's well combined.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
- Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
- Before serving, dust the cake with cocoa powder.
This cake is rich and fudgy, so a small slice goes a long way. It's perfect served with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
