- Bittersweet Chocolate

How to make
Grab a 9 inch springform pan and grease with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a stand mixer beat the eggs and sugar for about 5 minutes until nice and fluffy. While the eggs and sugar are beating, melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate together either over the stovetop or in the microwave. Allow it to cool for about 2-3 minutes.
Once slightly cooled, pour in the melted chocolate and mix until just combined then the vanilla and cocoa powder. Pour the batter into a prepared 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes then allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving.
Why is it called Flourless Chocolate Cake?
Well it just doesn’t have flour! But now you may be wondering…. How does the cake hold structure without the flour? Simple, the eggs and cocoa powder provide the structure for the cake. By whipping the eggs, it helps the cake rise and the cocoa powder helps take the place of the flour.
What to serve with Flourless Chocolate Cake
- Whipped Cream– This is always a favorite and cuts down the richness of the cake.
- Berries– Any type of berries would go perfectly with this cake but I definitely prefer strawberries or blueberries.
- Ice Cream: Coffee, caramel or just good ol’ vanilla would be amazing with this chocolate cake.
