How to Make Adult Chocolate Cake (Flourless)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a cake pan (8 1/4" X 1 1/2" deep and in diameter).
  • 2Break the chocolate into a large bowl.
    Set over a sauce pan of barely simmering water until melted.
    Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  • 3Cut the butter into little pieces and beat into the chocolate.
  • 4Add the sugar and blend well, beating thoroughly.
  • 5In another bowl, beat the eggs until frothy and foamy, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture; make sure everything is thoroughly combined.
  • 6Pour the mixture into the cake pan and place in a bain marie (roasting pan containing enough water to come up to 1 inch of the cake pan's side).
  • 7Bake for 1 hour, then let it cool completely in the pan. When cool remove from the bain marie and refrigerate overnight.
  • 8When ready to eat, run a thin metal spatula around the edge of the pan and with a thump unmold the cake.
