This Flourless Chocolate Cake is by far the easiest version I have ever made and it tastes just as good as more difficult recipes. It is light and decadent and has a rich chocolate flavor. And spread over the top is a silky smooth chocolate ganache.
I love getting flourless chocolate cake at restaurants. It is one of my go to desserts since I found out that I had a gluten allergy and had to begin eating gluten free. I figured that it was about time that I learned how to make my own. But I hated how most recipes had complicated steps and had to be baked in water baths and all kinds of crazy things. So I finally came up with this version that is easier than anything else I have found that actually tastes better than the more complex versions! Yay!
You still need to give the cake plenty of time to cool so plan accordingly if you are planning to serve this at a certain time. I would give yourself at least 30 minutes to bring it to room temperature and add the ganache topping. Then at least 3 hours in the fridge to chill, but longer is better. I like to make this the night before I need it and let it refrigerate overnight.
Some people prefer a light coffee flavor to their flourless chocolate cake but I definitely prefer mine with a hint of almond flavor. It makes the cake taste amazing! I also like mine with a little chocolate or raspberry syrup. And don’t forget a sprinkle of powdered sugar and fresh raspberries.
This Easy Flourless Chocolate Cake is naturally gluten free, it isn’t overloaded with sugar, and is also high in protein! If you divide the cake into 8 servings, there are 6 grams of protein per serving. It is definitely one of the healthier options if you are deciding on a dessert.
