EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Prized for its pure chocolate flavor and popular long before the gluten-free craze, flourless chocolate cake is perfect for chocolate lovers. Made popular in Northern California restaurants in the 1980s and in France before that, this simple cake requires only a handful of ingredients to make it: butter, chocolate, eggs, and sugar. Its texture hovers between creamy truffle and airy cake: The edges and top develop a delicately crisp crust while the center remains moist and fudgy. Whipped egg whites and sugar incorporate air into the rich chocolate base creating lift and structure. Melted chocolate, butter, and egg yolks add flavor and texture. Because it relies on few ingredients, make sure you seek out the highest quality.

 

This cake only improves with time -- make ahead or store leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, for up to three days. Top the finished cake with whipped cream, a dusting of confectioners' sugar, scooped ice cream, chocolate ganache, or fluffy meringue. Elegant enough for company and easy enough for weeknights, flourless chocolate cake will become your go-to indulgence.
