Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

This Flourless Chocolate Cake is rich, smooth and easy to make. It's a great cake to bake if you are looking for something simple yet delicious. Plus, it only requires 5 key ingredients!

I've baked this low-carb cake multiple times for friends and family, and to satisfy those chocolate-cravings πŸ˜‹What I love about it is the mousse-like smoothness that carries a bit of firmness, so it's not too "soft" and light.

Decorating this cake is also super simple, simply dust some cocoa powder on the top. Of course, this is optional, and you can always serve the cake without the cocoa powder. 😊

The benefit of this flourless cake is that there is not flour substitute like potato or corn starch that are added texture, but might be higher in calorific value. You can also reduce this recipe in half if you are making it for just a few pax. Highly recommended, especially for chocolate lovers! 

(5 Ingredients Cake)
by Sumopocky

8 inch springform pan
*You can also use a smaller cake pan, which will give you a taller cake. Just increase baking time by a couple of minutes

200g of Unsalted Butter
400g of Dark Chocolate
20g of Caster Sugar
6 Eggs
140ml of Heavy Cream

*Optional: Cocoa powder (for decoration)

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
2. In a heat-proof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and butter over a water bath. Stir till smooth.
3. Add the sugar, and mix well.
4. Beat the eggs and add into the mixture gradually, stirring well between each addition.
5. Stir in the heavy cream.
6. Pour the mixture into a lined cake pan and transfer to a baking tray. Tap gently on the counter top to remove air bubbles. Pour water in the baking tray to create a water bath. Bake for 20 minutes.
7. When it's cooled to room temperature, wrap the cake in the mould with cling wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
8.  Gently remove the cake and dust with cocoa powder. I decorated the cake with some macarons, but it is totally optional if you choose to leave it out ☺️ Cut the cake with a sharp, warm knife. Enjoy!
