Saturday Morning: chocolate flourless cake

Flour-less chocolate heaven is just what the doctor ordered on a bright or gloomy Saturday morning. 
Crab your cup of tea or coffee and you are set for a weekend of happiness ( or so I think so) 

You'll need : 
 6 eggs
2/3 cup of sugar ( more if you like it sweeter. we don't)
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
2 TBSP cocoa powder ( hot chocolate will work just fine, if you don't have the other one on hand) 
1 chocolate bar , 60% or higher
1 TBSP butter

 Done easily in a few steps:

1: separate egg whites from egg yolks. 
whip the eggs gradually adding 1/2 of sugar

2: whip egg yolks with remaining sugar and add cocoa powder. 
mix well 

3. gently combine egg whites and yolks,
place in buttered baking tin
bake at 375 for about 30 min

bring the whipping cream to boil ( but do not boil!) 
add broken chocolate pieces
mix well until chocolate dissolves 
let cool

Slightly cool the cake, cut in two layers, thoroughly spread the cream between the layers 
and on top of the cake. Let the cake set in the fridge for at least 30 min. 

Grab some milk , tea or coffee and enjoy! 

I hope your weekend was grand and wishing you a happy Monday!


  1. I seriously need to try this already. I've been seeing flourless chocolate cake recipes for a while now and keep telling myself, "must try this weekend!" and never do. Looks too good!
