I decided to try making flourless chocolate cake, everyone always says how easy it is. I had some good baking chocolate and cocoa I wanted to use and thought why not?
With it’s brownie density it ended up moist and delicious, there was a decadence to it and I felt like I whipped up a little miracle. Plus the house smelled amazing (I suggest it if your trying to sell).
It was easy, easy and quick. I served it with vanilla yogurt and fruit and we enjoyed the rest of the evening on the front porch. What a great way to spend a weeknight…..
4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch round cake pan, and dust with cocoa powder.
In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt chocolate and butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
p.s. I served it warm
