Directions for: Flourless Chocolate Cake

  1. Pre-Heat oven to 300* and place oven rack in the middle position.
  2. Prepare a 9 x 2 inch cake pan by lightly buttering the bottom of the pan.
  3. Next, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
  4. Next, lightly butter the parchment paper and sides of pan with butter.
  5. Dust the pan with cocoa powder, tap out the excess cocoa.
  6. Melt the Chocolate and butter in a medium bowl over low to medium heat stirring until smooth, or you can use the microwave.
  7. Remove the bowl of chocolate and allow to cool just a little.
  8. You will need to use a mixer with a whisk attachment. (Preferably a Stand Mixer)
  9. Add eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt and two teaspoons of water. Beat on medium high speed until this is very foamy and pale in color. It should be about double the volume from the start. (Approx 2 minutes)
  10. Now lower the speed to low and slowly add the chocolate mix. As you add the mix increase the mixer speed back to medium until the ingredients are well mixed. (Approx 30 sec)
  11. Now, reduce the speed to low/medium and add the cocoa powder and mix another 30 sec or just until blended.
  12. Pour this mix into your prepared pan.
  13. Bake 40 – 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out wet with clumps sticking to it. (Remember all ovens are not alike, so check you cake after about 35 minutes) Don’t overcook this.
  14. Remove and set on cooling rack until completely cool. (Approx 30 min)
  15. If edges are high gently push down to make the cake flat.
  16. Using a flat knife, run around edges to loosen the cake.
  17. Invert on a wire rack and remove all parchment paper. Be sure to cool cake completely.
  18. Once cooled completely place on dish and put in refrigerator until it is completely cold all the way through. (Possibly overnight or 6 hours)
