My recipe of the year right here! OMG I am in love with this cake. I think the best part is that I always have these ingredients on hand and it isn’t expensive to make because it doesn’t use any flour. Guilt free flourless chocolate cake is all yours to enjoy!

Flourless Chocolate Cake 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C. Butter
  • 1/2 C. Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 C. Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 C. Cocoa Powder

Process:

  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees
  2. Grease two 6″ cake pans very well
  3. In a Saucepan, Melt butter and chocolate chips on low heat until well blended
  4. Whisk Eggs, Coconut Sugar and Cocoa in a large bowl
  5. Add Chocolate and butter to the egg mix and whisk everything together
  6. Pour batter into cake pans evenly and bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
  7. Cool completely on wire rack

*Variations: This batter does not rise well, you can make in 9″ pan (bake 12 minutes) to make a thinner tartlet style. I prefer the thicker 6″ pan. Cupcake pan (Bake 12 minutes) These also make great mini cupcakes (bake 7 minutes). Watch your bake time and check with a toothpick – try not to over bake or the cake can become dry. *
