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.


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.

  • Here’s how I look at sailing: 80% cocktails & charcuterie, 15% high stress, and 5% life threatening. I kinda want to work on that 5%. Anyone know of adult swim classes or better yet have a private pool so I can work on becoming a more confident swimmer? .

  • You guys, I attended a workshop today and met some amazing women. I’m not sure what actually prompted me to get myself there but what I do know is that I left feeling really inspired and want to continue meeting awesome people. BTW, if you haven’t checked out citygirlandthesea.com lately, it got a little refresh thanks to @sailinglutris . Check it out and let me know what you think! Thanks @huckleberryproduction and the rest of your amazing team for a fun Saturday afternoon!

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
