Notes on Ingredients

  • Bittersweet Chocolate: The star of this recipe, bittersweet chocolate provides a deep, complex flavor. Ensure it’s high-quality for the best results.
  • Unsalted Butter: Adds richness and smooth texture to the cake.
  • Sugar and Water: Create a simple syrup that helps to blend all the ingredients smoothly.
  • Large Eggs: Essential for binding the cake and giving it structure.
  • Salt: Enhances the chocolate flavor, balancing the sweetness.

How to Make Flourless Chocolate Cake

  1. Preparation: Start by gathering all your ingredients. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and grease a 10-inch round cake pan. Set it aside.
  2. Simple Syrup: Combine the sugar, water, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until completely dissolved and set aside.
  3. Melting Chocolate: In a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl, melt the bittersweet chocolate in 15-second intervals, stirring after each interval until smooth. Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  4. Mixing Butter: Cut the unsalted butter into pieces. Beat the butter, one piece at a time, into the melted chocolate until fully combined.
  5. Incorporating Syrup and Eggs: Slowly beat in the hot sugar water. Then, add the eggs one at a time, beating each one thoroughly before adding the next.
  6. Baking: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Place this pan into a larger pan and fill the larger pan with boiling water, halfway up the sides of the cake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. The center will still look wet.
  7. Chilling: Place the cake in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled, about 8 hours to overnight.
  8. Unmolding: To unmold, dip the bottom of the cake pan in hot water for 10 seconds and invert onto a serving plate.

How to Serve Flourless Chocolate Cake

Serve this cake chilled or at room temperature. For an extra touch of elegance, dust with powdered sugar or cocoa powder. Pair with fresh berries or a dollop of whipped cream to complement the rich chocolate flavor.

How to Store Flourless Chocolate Cake

Store the cake in the refrigerator, tightly covered, for up to 5 days. For longer storage, wrap the cake well and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
