Tips to make the BEST flourless chocolate cake

  • Use the best chocolate for this recipe to get the best chocolate flavors and texture.
  • I melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave, but this process can also be done on the stove top. In a pan, melt the chocolate, butter and oil on low until the mixture becomes smooth. And don’t forget to stir occasionally.
  • Line the tray with parchment paper and use a spring foam pan. Butter the bottom of the pan to hold the paper in place and the top of the paper and the sides of the pan to easily remove the cake from the pan.
  • You can also dust the pan with cocoa powder to make it even easier to remove the cake. Dusting the pan with cocoa powder makes this recipe completely gluten free.
  • I have found that this incredible cake tastes best the next day. So when completely cooled, chill it overnight and then leave it out at least an hour before serving.
  • This super rich cake can be served with whipped cream and some fresh fruits or simply dusted with icing sugar or even with a side of vanilla ice cream to balance out the chocolate.

This decadent recipe is also gluten free and a great addition to your last minute dinner parties.
