Chocolate Flourless Cake

I pulled this recipe out of an InStyle magazine almost three years ago and make it all the time.  It is very easy and only has five ingredients in the cake.  It’s very easy to whip up on the fly or if you have to bring a dessert to pass.  It tastes decadent and most people love it.  It’s also great for anyone with gluten allergies, as there is no flour in the cake.  The spiced whipped cream is what really puts it over the top.  Try it, you’ll like it.

Chocolate Flourless Cake:


1/2 lb bittersweet baking chocolate

1/2 cup unsalted butter

3 T bourbon

4 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

Spiced Cream:

3/4 cup cold heavy whipping cream

2 T confectioners’ sugar

dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease a 9″ pie pan or 9″ round baking pan.  Melt chocolate and butter in saucepan, stirring frequently so as not to burn it.  Stir until smooth.  Mix in bourbon, remove from heat and set aside.  With an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until mixture is thick, about 7 minutes.  Fold into chocolate mixture slowly.  Mix well.  Spoon batter into prepared pan.  Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool completely.  Just before serving, beat heavy cream until frothy.  Add confectioners’ sugar and spices, continue beating until soft peaks form.  Serve on individual slices of cake with chocolate shavings.  Yummy!  Enjoy!
