Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Cake

gluten free flourless chocolate cake

I’ve made this twice now and cannot believe how easy it is with just 3 ingredient for a flourless chocolate cake: Sugar, eggs, chocolate bars. I was looking up recipes on Pinterest and found Girl Gone Gourmet‘s instructions the easiest and most comprehensive.

Great for breakfast or tea time over a Moka brew of some tea. :) I love those Jasper Conran’s Wedgwood Chinoiserie Plates,  breaking out all those wedding gifts for utility.

I don’t do desserts that are too sweet, I reduced the 2/3 cups of sugar to 1/3 cup, but it was still a tad too sweet for me as the chocolate bars already contained 18g of sugar, so I further reduced it to 1/4 cup of sugar. Everything else I kept the same and added 3 tablespoons of raw cacao which didn’t make a huge difference. I think the sugar content did for sure. I couldn’t get French organic eggs, so I settled on Thailand eggs. I wasn’t sure about cruelty free American eggs and well, China chickens I imagined are cooped up in tiny spaces and not treated with care.

Another one of my intent is to avoid cruelty free eggs as much as I can. The video is not for the faint hearted, but it is important to know where those eggs are coming from. I tried another adapted recipe from Wolfgang Puck’s Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe.
