Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake is the ultimate recipe for me in the baking realm.  Minimal ingredients, minimal prep, huge taste. Have I mentioned I’m not a baker? I’m not. This cake isn’t overly sweet and I like that, but some might not… so be warned.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup sugar

12oz bittersweet chocolate

1 cup unsalted butter

6 eggs

Method:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a spring form pan. Put chocolate, butter, and salt in a microwave safe bowl and cook until chocolate is melted and smooth.  You could heat it over a saucepan but were not going to go crazy here.  It tastes the same.  Beat eggs and sugar until light and thickened, about ten minutes.  Fold in the melted chocolate into the egg mixture until evenly combined.  Don’t over mix, you want the mixture to be light.  Pour the batter in your prepared pan and bake for an hour and 15 minutes. 

Fun trick: When ready to serve, place a doily over the cake and dust it with powdered sugar for a fun design.  Again, impressive, but easy! That’s the key.
