Happy Valentine’s Day! A perfect treat for today, or any day, really (provided you love chocolate). A flourless chocolate cake. Super easy to make and my chocolate loving hubby called it the best dessert I ever made!
Tips – preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used 60 percent)
- 1 stick butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Spray an 8 or 9 inch round cake pan with baking spray. Line the bottom of the pan only with parchment paper (I actually traced the pan on the parchment paper to get the right size). In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chips in 40 second incremens until you can stir it smooth. Add sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Fold in cocoa. Spresd into prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes. It may look undercooked, but it is not. Let cool completely.
- Ganache ingredients
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
Directions – heat cream in a microwave safe bowl for 45 seconds. Pour over chips. Let set for 2 minutes. Stir smooth. Pour over cake. Store in covered container.
