Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake
recipe translated and adapted from Shirley Living
- makes one 6" round

90g dark chocolate (I used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao)
45g unsalted butter
2 yolk
2 white
60g sugar, separated into 40+20
1/4tsp salt

1. Chop chocolate into small pieces.
2. Melt Butter (either using the double boiler method or microwave) and add chocolate. Stir until everything it's melted and smooth.
3. Heat egg white and 40g of sugar to around 100F (lukewarm). Remove and beat till stiff.
4. Heat yolk, salt and 20g sugar to around 100F (lukewarm). Remove and beat till it turns pale and creamy.
5. Mix chocolate to yolk. Beat softly.
6. Fold 1/3 white to the chocolate/ yolk batter.
7. Gently fold the rest of white in.
8. Bake in 350F for 30 minutes.

Tip: If you are making this cake, find and use the highest quality chocolate(;

Decadent treat. I liked everything about this cake.
Crunchy toasty crust + moist dense chocolate-y inside = divine.
This cake.. kind of resembles a brownie. And if I have to choose between a brownie and this cake, I would definitely prefer this cake! The crust. the crust. the crust. : D

Taste: 4.5 stars out of 5
Texture 5 stars out of 5

P.S. This cake is still good (or maybe even better) after a day or two in the fridge.



  1. This truly looks awsome. Im gratefull for the small portion it makes, since im frequently in the mood for just a treat for two people, and not 8! :) thx.

  2. Thanks SatTilLivs! It makes the perfect amount for a family of 4 to finish within 2 days(:

  3. I love flourless chocolate cakes- they are so rich and decadent and sinful! And your cake fits the description perfectly. Thanks for sharing and also stopping by my blog!:)
