Classic flourless chocolate cake (gf, df)

The classic flourless chocolate cake! One of my favourites to make because it is moist and fluffy at the same time. I love decorating my cakes with fresh strawberries and since they are in season now, I definitely made full use of it. I didn’t get a chance to take any photos of the cake slices because it was meant for a house warming party. But before the end of the party, that cake was gone – says a lot about how delicious it was!

Ingredients

  1. 85g nuttelex (or unsalted butter)
  2. 85g dark chocolate (I used Lindt 90% dark)
  3. 60g caster sugar
  4. 2 tbsp kahlua
  5. 3 eggs seperated
  6. 85g almond meal
  7. 1 pinch of salt
  8. 50g dark chocolate (70% Lindt dark)
  9. 1 punnet fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Grease a 18cm cake tin
  3. Melt the chocolate and nuttelex/butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water, remove from the heat, stir in the kahlua and leave to cool
  4. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar in a large bowl until pale and thick
  5. Fold the whisked egg yolks and almond meal into the chocolate
  6. In a separate bowl, with a clean whisk, beat the whites until they reach a soft peak
  7. Stir a spoonful of the whites into the chocolate mix, then carefully fold in the rest of them in 2 additions.
  8. Spoon in half of the mixture into the prepared tin
  9. Bake for 30 minutes until the skewer comes out clean
  10. Leave to cool in the tin slightly before releasing it, then place on a rack to cool completely
  11. Melt 50g of dark chocolate in the microwave and then spread the melted chocolate over the cooled cake
  12. Slice the strawberries into half and arrange them over the cake

There you have it! The classic flourless chocolate cake!
