Chocolate Flourless Cake

This is such a fantastic recipe and every time I make it so many people talk about it. They even remember it months later. So it must be a winner. And the best part about it is that with so many not able to have wheat it is getting difficult to know what to cook - well this is good for both! I got it from a Sue Shepherd cookbook - Two Irresistible for the Irritable. It is such a brilliant book.




So the Ingredients are -
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup water
150g unsalted butter
150g dark cooking chocolate
1 1/4 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/4 cups almond meal
4 eggs, separated


Preheat the oven to 150C. Grease and line a 22cm round spring-form cake pan.
In a saucepan over low heat, combine cocoa, water, butter and chocolate until melted and smooth in consistency. Remove from heat stir in sugar, almond meal and egg yolks.
Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool to room temperature.



Beat egg whites in a small bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form.


Fold egg whites into chocolate mixture in two batches.



Pour mixture into prepared cake pan.



Bake, uncovered for 55-65 minutes. Remove from oven. Allow cake to cool in pan for about 20 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

I like to leave mine at least for one day in the fridge as it can be a little "gooey" if you eat it the same day. Some love it like this, but I prefer a more cakey texture.

If you wanted to you could serve with Ganace and strawberries!! Delicious!

We’re going to be eating this on Sunday for family get together. Yum!

I also make these sweet things today too. Not for me though some work happening at the Kingdom hall and I thought I would give the men some real men food. Lol


So thats it for me!  Maybe another post later?? Can I do a record and put three in the one day??  We'll see.
