How To Make scharffen berger flourless chocolate cake

  • 1
    Grease the bottom of an 8-inch cake pan and line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  • 2
    Break up chocolate and put in the top of a double boiler or in a bowl over simmering water. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir to melt. Remove from heat and let cool to slightly warm.
  • 3
    In an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until the mixture is pale, light and fluffy. Slowly add the egg yolks and continue beating to a light consistency.
  • 4
    Add cooled chocolate and beat until smooth and velvety. Beat egg whites with a completely clean wire whisk attachment until soft peaks. Gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture.
  • 5
    The egg whites should be gently folded in with a spatula. Make sure there are no white streaks in the batter.
  • 6
    Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The top will be puffy and may crack.
  • 7
    Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 8
    Serve at room temperature with whipped cream and a few fresh berries. Alternatively, dust the top with powdered sugar.
