Flourless Chocolate Cake
This rich cake is often topped with a ganache topping, or simply served with softly whipped cream, slightly sweetened. As the name states, there is no flour in the recipe.

Recipe by Renee Shelton. March 11, 2011.


185g 60% dark chocolate, chopped
70g whole butter
5 egg yolks
85g granulated sugar
5 egg whites
28g granulated sugar


In a bain marie, melt the chocolate and butter together. Cool to room temperature. Whip the egg yolks with the 85g of sugar until light. Whip the egg whites with the 28g of sugar until firm peaks form. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Add in about a third of the whipped whites into the chocolate/egg batter until smooth, then lightly fold the rest of the whites into the mix.

Transfer the batter into a sprayed springform pan. Bake until the center tests done, about 35 minutes.

Let cool, then top with melted ganache, or dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream.
