Flourless Chocolate Cake

April 08 , 2015 by: Hong Food

One of my most favorite things in the world is chocolate cake. I came across this recipe about a year ago and have attempted it a few times. The first time I failed miserably as I didn’t use a spring form pan. This time it came out imperfectly perfect.

I was saving my Belgian chocolates for a special occasion and then I thought, why? I hate it when I save things for special occasions. I woke up with a hankering for chocolate cake, so what better of an occasion, right?

I really could have just devoured every single piece right out of the package…

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Don’t you just want to sink your teeth into it?

The whipped cream, oh the whipped cream was just as divine.

I love how dense this cake is. It’s like eating a brownie cake.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
2 sticks + 1 1/2 tbsp butter
8.8 oz coarsely chopped dark chocolate (70%)
1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp coffee
4 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp  sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a spring form pan and cover the base with baking paper.
Gently melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan on low heat. When mixture is melted and smooth, stir in coffee, then set aside.
In a large bowl, whip eggs, sugar and vanilla until very light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes.
Stir chocolate mixture into egg mixture with a spatula. Stir until smooth. Add a pinch of salt.
Pour batter into the prepared spring form pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Let cake cool before removing it from the pan. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Dust top with powered sugar and serve with a side of whipped cream.

  • Spent the weekend at anchor in Liberty Bay. These types of weekends alway remind me of how little we really need in life; nourishment, warmth, love, and a little attention. Happy Earth Day.
  • One of the things I love most about travel is the the discovery of universal languages such as food and an appreciation for culture. Some cities of course are better hosts than others at this but the discovery is part of the magic. This concludes my travel posts but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog to post more photos and tips specifically about Lisbon since some of you have inquired. More to come! ❤️
  • Lisbon; lively and busy but time stand stills. Modern with lots of character and respectful of traditions. Do yourself a favor and book your next trip to Lisbon. .
