Amazing Flourless Chocolate Cake!
0

8 posts in this topic

I made this yesterday, and it's pretty incredible. Warning: It is in no way healthy - it's a very rich and decadent dessert. I made it in cupcake form and put most of them in the freezer (I've read that flourless cakes stay good for up to three months in the freezer).

I have a feeling I'm going to be very popular at wine/dessert parties :)

Enjoy!

cake

1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 to 2 teaspoons espresso powder, optional

1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional

3 large eggs

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, Dutch-process cocoa preferred

glaze

1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup heavy cream

1) Preheat the oven to 375

Yup, that's good stuff! Sadly, none of mine ever makes it to the freezer because we are oinkers in this house. :lol:

Good idea to make it into cupcakes. How much did you shorten the cook time?

A suggestion. If you use the espresso powder, do not use the vanilla too. They serve the same purpose and using both will alter the taste quite a bit.

Sylvia and I both make this cake regularly ---and it is really rich, isn't it? and, yes, very fattening!! :)

Skylark has posted another flourless cake recipe that has even fewer steps ...but more eggs. It's in here:

It is the yummiest! I will only make it when I have to provide a dessert for something. And I have frozen it, too...it's just a bit more dense but freezes well.

I just ate another cupcake :P I have a feeling this cake may become a problem for me, especially on nights when I come home stressed out, lol. Sometimes a girl just needs her chocolate.

    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
    • I'm sorry you've been having such a rough time.  I'm thinking you may have accidentally ingested something containing gluten, and that's what caused your reaction.  A lot of people will react quite severely to even a tiny bit of gluten.  That's why there is so much on here about avoiding cross contamination.  Even though you've been diagnosed with NCGS, you still need to live as though you have actual celiac disease, and be very careful not to cheat.  Your body will punish you for it.  :/  In the meanwhile, nurture yourself kindly and gently, just as you would after a severe bout of food poisoning or intestinal infection.  Comfort foods, like broths and soups and smoothies.  You might want to avoid lactose for a few months too.  Sometimes we lose our ability to digest lactose when our intestines are damaged and vulnerable like yours is right now.   And remember healing takes time.  So does learning the gluten free lifestyle.  Expect some setbacks occasionally.  You WILL get better!
