Flourless Chocolate Cake

By happymumof5 on 23 July 2010 | Viewed 55200 times

Only 4 ingredients & none of them specialty items!


250 grams 70% Dark Chocolate
250 grams Butter
1 cup sugar
7 eggs


Preheat oven to 150 degrees.  Spray large spring-form pan with non stick spray and/or line with baking paper (it does tend to stick if you don’t use the baking paper).  It does rise quite a bit so a large spring-form pan is much better than a regular sized one.

Put butter & chocolate into double boiler and melt on low heat (I just use a large bowl sitting on top of my saucepan about 1/4 filled with water).  Or you could melt on med-low in microwave.  Be careful not to over heat it - stop as soon as it is liquid!

Separate egg whites and yolks into separate bowls.  Whisk egg yolks into the chocolate/butter mixture.

Beat egg whites with electric beater for 3 minutes, then add the sugar.  Beat for another (approx) 3 minutes until the mixture is stiff and glossy.  Gently fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula.

Pour mixture into lined spring-form pan and smooth out with spatula.

Bake batter until cake is set in the centre - this takes up to an hour, but more or less depending on your oven & if you use fan bake etc - you’ll need to keep checking it from about 45 minutes.

Let the cake cool for at least 15 Min’s before removing from the pan.  Dust with icing sugar and/or cocoa. 

Try it served with greek yoghurt or cream.  You could even top with fresh raspberries for an extra special treat!

Will try this tonight and let you know how it went.

Terrible! Whos oven has a temp on it for 150? I had it on 250 for an hour and it was still liquid. I then put it on 350 and baked for an additional hour! It rose, then when it cooled it flattened like a crumbly pancake! Tasted aweful!

Had a comment about the recipe being terrible because of the low temperature…um…this is a NZ website, the temperature is in CELCIUS not Fahrenheit!  The recipe is great, I did make it before I posted it!  Good luck next time…

This is yummy and got a lot of positive comments.  It was better the second time around as I made myself not open the oven for the full hour.  It still sunk a wee bit but the taste is wonderful.  Any hints how I can get it not to sink at all as it looks so good when it first comes out of the oven.
