@IrishHeart - flourless chocolate cake is da bomb! I have a great recipe for one too.




A chunk of that with some champagne? oh baby, I'm purring like a kitten.

I'd love to hear your recipe too!!

I might as well totally burst the zipper on my jeans... :lol:

Years ago, Pamela's was my only choice other than scratch. And gluten-free recipes? Almost nonexistant on the web (that I knew about, anyway). Used to make Pamela's, but last time I tried, had a funny taste. The best I have tried so far, was 365 gluten-free cake, but apparently they don't carry it anymore at Whole Foods. Dang. It was the best! Have not tried KA's, but probably will due to the rave reviews here on this board :)

This one is more like fudge than cake. It goes over really well even among glutenoids.

Flourless chocolate cake:

In saucepan, melt:
1 c. butter
1 lb. dark chocolate
1/4 c. coffee liqueur (amaretto is really good too!)
1 tsp vanilla

In bowl, beat until pale and thick:
7 eggs
1 c. sugar

Fold 1/3 of egg mixture into chocolate mixture. Then fold the rest in. Pour in greased springform cake pan with removable bottom. Bake 350 degrees for 55 min. Let cool, release from pan.

Sounds de-lish!
The one I posted is more fudgy than cake-y as well. I should mention that, too.

Thanks, Sky!! :)

Ooooh. That's dangerously easy.

This Sounds delicious. I just have one teeny tiny problem. I don't own a Springform pan. Any Suggestions?

I voted other. I like my homemade version. The only store bought I have even tried is Betty Crocker. It's fine when I'm in a hurry and it's extremely convenient because my local grocery store carries it.

I find that the Betty Crocker cakes (both chocolate and yellow but especially the yellow) are sensitive to over baking. I think they do better as cupcakes. Using the 8"/9" pan, the edges tend to get a little dry. (IMO)

I think I'll have to give the King Arthur's a try as well.

I'm not sure. It's creamy enough that getting it out of a regular cake pan in one piece would be difficult. Maybe cook it in something attractive enough for serving?

You might be able to cut a circle of greased baking parchment to fit in the bottom and a strip to line the sides of a cake pan and be able to turn it out of the pan? I don't know because I've always had a springform.

That should work, really. You can just use one big circle - don't strip it. The weight will hold it down and you can crease it with your fingernail.

I've used this recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake from the King Arthur website. It doesn't sound quite as decadent as the one Skylark posted but I've never had a problem getting it out of a regular round layer cake pan. I followed their directions and used a circle of greased parchment on the bottom and the sides can easily be loosened without a problem. My gluten-eating friends all asked for the recipe.

King Arthur Chocolate cake is my #1 favorite. Betty Crocker mix has soy in it, and I'm allergic to soy. When BC first came out with their chocolate cake mix, it did not contain soy and I made some very delicious cupcakes. Several years ago they switched to soy, so I tried KA and it is now the one I serve for gluten eating company. No one can tell the difference.

I just made the Cherrybrook chocolate cake. It was really yummy! No dairy involved if I remember. It was vanilla, water and oil. Yummy! They have awesome pancakes too! They taste just like regular.
