The ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cake, decadent, rich chocolate flavor with an airy soufflé-like texture without Gluten, nuts or dairy.
By Shannon Lim
After watching a dozen videos on flourless chocolate cake, armed with a spring form cake tin and the powerful whisking machine; it is indeed pretty effortless to whisk the egg whites and yolks to perfection within minutes. And soon after, the most amazingly perfect flourless chocolate cake emerged. The best I’ve ever tasted!
I brought the cake to the workshop I was attending the next day, and it made me really, really proud to see the faces that lit up the minute each participant took a bite. Every bite is light, fluffy and pure chocolate decadence, that you would tend to want an extra slice (which everyone did!). It has the rich chocolate flavor that I crave for and an airy souffle-like texture without any of the fuss.
The cake is gluten free, grain free, nut free and dairy free; made with only four ingredients – good quality dark chocolate, cocoa powder, eggs and natural sweetener. The molasses lends the special flavour and richness that I love in the cake.
Molasses, the waste product of manufacturing white sugar, is a nutrient-rich, low-glycemic sweetener. Sugar is extracted from boiled-down sugarcane juice by mechanical means, and what is left after extraction is molasses. The nutrient content in molasses varies depending on the grade of molasses, the article here explains how sugar and its different byproducts are made.
I’m bold enough to say this Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe is a MUST to have up your sleeve. You’re just four ingredients away from this impressive dessert, so get ready to wow your guests without worrying about leaving out friends with food intolerance. After all, I believe that Julia Child said it best, ” A party without cake is just a meeting!”Print
