    Flourless Chocolate Cake

    Gluten-intolerant and looking for a delicious dessert? We think you're going to be a fan of this flourless chocolate cake recipe!

    Chocolate is always a good idea and chocolate cake, well, who doesn’t love that? This version is a little lighter than a “normal” cake because it’s free of flour – which is of course great news if you’re gluten-intolerant. And it doesn’t taste any less amazing.

    Here´s what you´ll need...

    • 300g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
    • 225g golden caster sugar
    • 225g butter + extra for greasing the tin
    • 6 eggs – separated
    • 1tsp instant coffee
    • 175ml water

    Optional (not shown):

    • Mixed berries
    • Crème fraîche or whipped cream
    • Poached pears

    Here´s how it´s done... Step 1

    Grease a 23cm spring, form tin and line with baking paper. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Turn the heat down to low and add the chocolate chunks and coffee, stir continuously until all the chocolate is melted.


    Step 2

    Add the butter and stir until all combined, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until fluffy and doubled in size, in a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.


    Step 3

    Now fold the melted chocolate mix into the egg yolk mix, carefully fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the mix. Now fold the rest of the egg whites in, being careful not to overwork it.


    Step 4

    Pour the mix into the prepared tin, bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool on a rack before transferring into the fridge for a few hours. Serve with your preferred topping or on its own.
