FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

INGREDIENTS 

12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped 
12 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
6 large eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 
Confectioners' sugar and/or powder, for dusting 
Serving suggestionVanilla Whipped Cream, recipe follows, or ice cream
1 cup heavy or whipping cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla paste or extract
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar 

 

PROCESS

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees 
Spray a 9 by 2-inch spring form pan with nonstick spray 
Put the chocolate, butter and salt in a large microwave safe bowl
Melt in the microwave on 75% power for 2 minutes 
Stir and microwave again until the ingredients are completely melted, about 2 minutes more
Alternatively, put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and bring a saucepan filled with an inch or so of water to slowly simmer; set the bowl on the pan without touching the water
Stir occasionally until melted
Beat the eggs and sugar with a standing or handheld mixer until light and thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes
Fold the melted chocolate into the whipped eggs until evenly combined
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour and 25 minutes 
Remove the cake from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out wet but not gooey
Let the cake cool on a rack
When ready to serve remove ring from spring form mold
Dust cake with confectioners' sugar or cocoa powder 
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired 
 
Process for Vanilla Whipped Cream
Beat the cream and vanilla in a chilled bowl with a whisk or an electric mixer just until they hold a loose peak 
Life the beater from the cream and look at the shape of the peak at the end of the whisk; it should hold a lazy curve
Sift the sugar over the cream and continue to beat just until it holds a soft peak
Make sure not to over beat the cream or it will be curdy
Serve, or refrigerate covered up to 4 hours
