About: Michael's Test Kitchen - FOOD - SUGAR - RECIPES

Flourless Chocolate Cake is an awesome way to go off gluten without even noticing! In fact, making a chocolate cake without flour allows it to be even richer, full of chocolate flavor, and very moist.

When you eat this cake, you don't even feel like you are going off gluten, because it tastes almost like brownies, and it's hard to believe that there are no grains whatsoever in it. You could even make it dairy free if you substituted coconut oil for the butter in the recipe.

This cake also allows the freedom to garnish with whatever you desire; fruit and caramel sauces, sprinkled with confectioners sugar, you name it. It is just as easy (if not easier) to make as regular chocolate cake and is just as rewarding. So feel free to try it and let me know how it goes! Enjoy.

Poem

It’s More Than a Gift Card pt. 1
By Michael Metzler Jr.

.

If you see this lying here
And see it littered far and near,

Do not question or dare discard;

I tell you: It’s more than just a gift card.

.

You can earn free drinks, and sometimes more,

If you bring it to the store,

But be specific, not any store will do.

It has to be the store that gave it to you.

.

Register this card for free awards

Register for boots and swords,

Register for lumps of clay

There are so many awards to get today.

.

For, this card can get you swirled

Coffee in a cup, and yes, the WORLD,

If you grasp the chance and dash,

And do not throw it in the trash.

.

It is plastic for good reason,

It can withstand many a season,

Biodegrade, it will not do,

But will remain just as your shoe.

.

Do not think, not for a moment,

That this card is an unnecessary component,

Do not wait, do not think,

With this, you can remodel--yes--your sink!

for pt. II, see my next post, which will be Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients: (make one 8 or 9-inch cake)

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon instant coffee, optional

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

¾ cup unsalted butter

¾ cup cocoa powder

4 eggs

Step 2: Melt It

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and line the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler with butter.

Step 3: Mix It

Once melted, remove from heat and beat in sugar first. Remove from heat, then add salt, instant coffee, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Add eggs, and beat until just combined.

Step 4: Pour It

Pour into the greased cake pan.

Step 5: Bake, Cool, and Enjoy!

Bake in preheated oven for 30+ minutes, until there is a thin crust formed on the top of the cake.

Take cake out of the oven, then remove the sides of the pan. Flip cake upside down, remove the bottom of the pan, then flip back over, so that the top of the cake is facing up. Allow to cool further. Sprinkle the top with confectioners sugar for garnish. Then serve.

    Looks yummy! But, it looks like the texture would be more like a brownie. Is it chewy?

    Thank you! Yes, it ends up being more like a brownie - more condensed and almost chewy.
