How to Make Almost Flourless Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 17 ounces best-quality dark chocolate
    7 ounces unsalted European-style butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
    5 large eggs
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 pint heavy whipping cream
    Peels from 1 Meyer lemon
  • 2Heat the oven to 375º F, and butter a 9-inch cake pan. Line the base of the pan with parchment, and butter that, too.
  • 3Chop the chocolate and melt if in a double boiler (I use a metal bowl over a simmering pan of water), stirring continuously. Once it begins to melt, add the butter, and keep stirring until both are fully melted. Add the sugar, stir to combine, and set aside to cool slightly.
  • 4Add the eggs one at time, mixing very well after each. Mix in the flour. At this point your batter should be super smooth.
  • 5Pour batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for about 25 minutes — or, as Molly says, until the center of the cake looks set and the top is shiny and a bit crackly-looking.
  • 6Let the cake cool in its pan on a rack for 10 minutes; then carefully turn the cake out of the pan and revert it, so that the crackly side is facing upward. (The cake will deflate slightly as it cools.) Allow to cool completely before you serve.
  • 7Serve in wedges at room temperature with whipped cream — or nothing at all.
