This Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe comes from the Taste archives. It is moist, rich and delicious.
I ground my own almond meal by putting almonds through a blender. I prefer to keep the skins on. I think it adds to the flavour and also has more nutrients. You can also buy it in packets if you don't want to make it yourself.
The recipe also calls for the Flourless Chocolate Cake to be baked in a water bath as the picture shows above.
Do not think it is difficult or time consuming as it isn't. All you need to do is find a roasting pan bigger than the tin you are using put your tin in the pan then fill the pan halfway up. It is just one step.
I am guessing this step is used to make the cake lighter and more moist. It's like a fluffy cloud. I really like this Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe and I hope you do to.
Served with Coconut Ice Cream you can't go wrong. They are an incredible combination together. You can never go wrong pairing anything with chocolate can you?
Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup hot water
100g almond meal
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 eggs, separated
Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a round 22cm (base measurement) cake pan or a loaf tin with milk free margarine spread to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
Combine the cocoa powder and hot water in a medium bowl.
Add almond meal, sugar and egg yolks to cocoa mixture and stir until well combined.
Use an electric beater to whisk egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Use a metal spoon to fold a spoonful of egg whites into cocoa mixture until combined. Gently fold in remaining egg whites until just combined.
Pour mixture into prepared pan. Place cake pan in a roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to reach two-thirds of the way up the side of the cake pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven allow to cool a few minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool and enjoy.
