A couple weeks ago I had to decide what dessert to make for a friend who has a gluten free diet and I was completely stumped at first. What could I possible make with no flour?! After picking my brain, I thought hey why not a flourless chocolate cake?!
Since I am no gluten-free baker, I used the help of Epicurious.com for this one and adapted it slightly.
I was so pleasantly surprised at how simple and fudgy delicious this cake was. Kind of brownie like consistency. I would recommend it for sure. My only complaint was how thin the cake was, so be prepared for that. I found that once I put it onto a cake stand and dusted it with powdered sugar and raspberries, it looked great. I might even double the recipe next time for a thicker cake.
Hope you enjoy!
Pardon my Instagram Photos here, but you’ll start by placing your chocolate and butter over a double boiler until melted and smooth.
Mix your chocolate with sugar, eggs and cocoa powder, then transfer to your springform pan and bake!
