Recipe For Flourless Chocolate Cake?

Recommended Posts

It looks awesome Julie. Did you use ghee, or regular butter (or something else)?

Thanks Mango!

I used butter :ph34r:

I don't see why you couldn't experiment with spectrum spread or coconut oil. You cream the sugar with the fat, it might give you a slightly different end result, but I think it's doable. I might try it too, I'm on a mission to perfect this recipe!

I'm so used to a modified way of eating anyway, you probably couldn't enter it in a bake off, but it tastes good :lol:

JULIE.......I HATE TO EVEN PUT THIS UP BUT MAYBE SOME BAKERS OUT THERE CAN TESTIFY THAT THIS WILL WORK :blink: SEENS IS SHOULD HAVE EGGS OR SOMETHING???

I JUST FOUND THIS ON A POST SOMEWHERE TODAY.

SINCE YOU HAD COCOA THOUGHT I'D POST BUT SAW YOU MADE ANOTHER ONE.

IT SURE LOOKED GOOD

JUST THOUGHT I'D ADD THIS TO THE LIST. IF ANY OF YOU SEE SOMETHING MISSING PLEASE ADVISE.......I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO POSTED THIS :blink:

To those of you new members the best chocolate cake is the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can - just add 1 tsp. xanthan gum and don't overbake.

My favorite frosting is as follows (make while cake is baking):

1 stick butter or margarine

4 Tbsp cocoa

6 Tbsp milk

1 box powdered sugar

1+ tsp. vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans.

Melt butter, and add rest of ingredients except pecans. Mix or beat until smooth (if lumps I use a Braun blender or hand mixer). Add pecans and spread on hot cake.

The end result was a little dry, I used 4 eggs and I am wondering if I should of used 5? It might have been the added sugar I used, I wasn't sure when to add it so I might have messed it up.

I wonder... I made a chocolate flourless cake for NY Eve using this recipe. It was divine! Anyway, I'm thinking that perhaps yours was a bit overcooked? That'd certainly dry it out. The recipes I see for cakes like this with loads of eggs and ultra dense usually have you cook them in a water bath.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Place cake pan in roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cake pan. Bake until center of cake is set and tester inserted into center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 1 hour. Remove pan from water. Chill cake overnight.

Thanks Judy, looks good!! We can never have enough chocolate goodies :lol:

It looks like those were frosting ingredients and then you just use the recipe on the Hershey's can for the cake, if I read it correctly.

This recipe looks great too Nancy, thanks for posting.

You know now that you mention I do think it was overcooked. I didn't use a springpan so that might have called for a time adjustment, and the fact that I made 1/2 of the recipe as well.

Now I know for next time!
