Flourless chocolate cake

Flourless chocolate cake!

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.

  • Ingredients
  • 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.

A marbled chocolate chip-chocolate chocolate chip cookie

Now, that’s a cookie!

Rob, my president of taste testing, could not decide between a chocolate chip cookie and chocolate chocolate chip cookie, so I made both kinds and smooshed (or is it smushed?) them together. They are very large cookies. Oh, and I dipped the bottoms in melted Hershey kisses just because that makes them even more magical. You’re welcome.

Melted chocolate on the bottom takes these up a notch!
  • Chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cups flour (scooped from your flour bag into your measuring cup)
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl, melt 2/3 cup chocolate chips and butter in 30 second increments until you can stir combo melted. In another bowl, beat brown sugar, sugar and eggs 2 minutes. Add melted chocolate mixture, chocolate extract and eggs. Fold in dry ingredients. As you chill this dough in the fridge for 20 minutes, make the chocolate chip cookie dough

  • Chocolate chip cookie dough ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, soft
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 yolks
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (scooped from your flour bag into your measuring cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour (scooped from your flour bag into your measuring cup)
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and yolks. Fold in dry ingredients. Mix in chips.

Cookie assembly directions – Scoop out 3 tbs of chocolate chip cookie dough and 3 tbs of chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough. Form one large mound. (You may have extra chocolate chip cookie dough). Chill the dough mounds for an hour or so. Preheat oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper, stagger cookies. I think I put 6 to 8 on one sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. I do not recommend linger than 11 minutes total because cookies will dry out. Cool completely. Cover bottoms of cookies in melted Hershey kisses (I microwave unwrapped kisses in 30 second increments, in a microwave safe bowl until it can be stirred smooth). Let chocolate set. Store in covered container.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you make these, let me know how they turn out. I wish you peace, love and happiness today. I know life is hard, so remember to be kind to others, and to yourself.
