Flourless Chocolate Cake for Christmas

In Let's eat on December 23, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Try this cake recipe. Really easy to put together. Amazing taste. No one will know how easy it is.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees

Cake

Grease and cocoa powder an 8 inch cake pan.

Melt 1 stick butter and 8 oz. good semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler. Pull off heat.

Add chocolate/butter mix to 3 beaten eggs, ¾ c. sugar and 1 t. vanilla.

Mix well.

Pour into pan and bake on middle rack for 40 minutes.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes (and no less!)

Turn out on rack (I put on parchment paper so that it didn’t stick to the rack. Cool completely.

Pour soft chocolate ganache over the top.

 

Ganache

Equal parts whipping cream and chocolate, melted in double boiler, with some vanilla.

Bit of butter to make it shiny.

Pour over cake. If you need to thin it, add a bit more cream.

  1. Probably making this today since I managed to remember tamales, egg sandwiches & pizzas, but forgot about a desert. Maybe that’s because I also remembered mimosas, causing other details to slip. Thankfully we’ve got all the ingredients!

    Happy Christmas!

  2. dessert

    Note to self: spell check.
