Flourless Chocolate Cake

I made this cake and my friends loved it (and wanted the recipe). It's so easy and better than one I made a couple of years ago. I didn't have espresso powder but added a teaspoon of vanilla instead. I used regular Hershey's cocoa powder. Nice thing is that I always have the ingredients on hand except the cream. I refrigerated it overnight and it makes 12 servings (all from an 8" round cake pan). I think it would be good garnished with fresh raspberries.

If you don't have espresso powder I think instant coffee will work. It looks so good that I am going to make it this week.

I told my daughter about this recipe (she also has celiac) and she's going to make it for her hubby's birthday in March. It's nice that something that tastes so good is also gluten-free.

I don't see why instant coffee wouldn't work instead of espresso...I don't have any of that either and didn't feel like buying something I had no use for otherwise.

This sounds great and I have been dieing for something like this, but I can not do dairy what would I use for the heavy cream.

Hmmm...don't know. What about the rest of the ingredients (chocolate)? I guess you could probably substitute Earth Balance for the butter.

For the topping, how about a raspberry sauce with fresh raspberries as a garnish? Or "ice cream"...like So Delicious or possibly a dairy-free whipped topping?

I would think you could use any milk sub like almond milk, maybe? I'd start with a little less than the recipe calls for and see how it thickens.

I find her recipes to be amongst the best in my opinion. Some of her recipes are a little different from the usual boring dull themes which is sooooooo refreshing.

Try her coconut layer cake, too - it is brilliant! :)

I'm not a baker, but I would love to make this cake (the Flourless Chocolate Cake first mentioned in this thread) to carry with me and have at my son's wedding, and also at the Rehearsal dinner. Do you think that this cake would freeze well? Thanks.

Here is an even fancier one Ive been making for passover every year. It is a huge hit and freezes well. Once chilled I place wax paper over the top. Place the cake on a cakeboard with doily, wrap in foil and place in a 2 gallon ziploc bag. I make it every year, freeze it and then cart it 200 miles to the inlaws in a cooler and it is always a hit. To dress it up even more, melt some white chocolate and drizzle over the top. The white against the very dark chocolate is a beautiful presentation.

Flourless Chocolate Cake

3/4 cup butter cut into pieces

2 tsp. vanilla extract

5 eggs, at room temperature

1 cup sugar

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 3500F. Butter a 9

I've never frozen it as it didn't last that long. It is by far the easiet Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe I've used. I will be making it for Easter but know I won't have any left to test freeze it.

When is the wedding? Can you possibly make one and test it (or freeze a few pieces)? Or send an email to bakers@kingarthurflour.com and I'm sure you'll get a response.

Thank you both for your response. The wedding is May 7th, and it's about 3 hrs. from where we live. I know that there will be little to nothing there that I will be able to eat (at the Reception), so I'm trying to plan ahead(meals, etc.). I'm still very new to all this; not quit 3 months since diagnosis. We will be there for 3 nts. and staying in a hotel. Do any of you have suggestions on how to plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner in this situation? I contacted several restaurants yesterday by e-mail, but have yet to hear from any of them. The wedding is in New Bern,NC, so not many choices on places to eat; however, they do have an Outback. I'm normally a healthy eater, have to be due to Insulin Resistance and on meds.

I don't usually eat many desserts, but I would like to have a little something at the Rehearsal dinner, and at the wedding. I'm going to make a test cake today, so I will defininately freeze a few slices and see how that works. Thanks so much for the replies and for your help with these additional questions. It is greatly appreciated.

Here is the response from King Arthur Flour regarding freezing the Flourless Chocolate Cake:

Thank you for your email. Yes flourless chocolate cake can be frozen.

However the texture changes dramatically. The defrosted cake will be

much firmer and dense in texture.

Please contact me if I may be of further assistance.

That's not too bad a drive then. For where to eat, why don't you post a message under the Gluten-Free Travel section asking about restaurants in Bern, NC. You might get some response there from people who are not reading this thread.

Let us know how the cake turns out. I chilled mine in the fridge overnight before tasting it the next day. My friends are still talking about that cake...two months after I served it. I can't say that about some of the other gluten-free desserts I've made. :unsure:

Hmmm...dense. Wonder if that means just 'more yummy'. There is no flour in it so I guess only the eggs, sugar, chocolate and cocoa add the structure. You'll have to let us know what it's like after it's been frozen. Now I'm hungry for it. Will have to wait until Sunday.

So how did the cake turn out? And did it freeze well? Inquiring minds want to know. :D

Sorry, I don't get to check this site very often. My mom has been having heart problems, so I have to take her to her doctor's appointments.

The cake turned out well, however, VERY rich for someone who doesn't eat a lot of sweets! I froze the majority of the cake, but haven't checked to see how it tastes afterwards. I'll let you know when I do. Thanks so much for the help.

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
