Flourless Chocolate Cake II


"Perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can't have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the pan using cocoa powder so it won't leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten-free."

Very good recipe but I would skip the cocoa and use all chocolate bars. I've made this many times and find that using cocoa gave the cake a grittier, more brownie-like texture. So I now use 2 fu...

I prepared this recipe about a week after trying it at a fancy restaurant. Without a doubt, flourless chocolate cake is yet another food that I previously thought was a high-end, 'classy' desser...

This was o.k.and makes for a very quick last minute dessert. However, the cocoa gave it more of a brownie taste than a chocolate cake/torte. There simply is no substitute for chocolate, LOTS OF ...

Excellent. Very rich. Very simple to make. I didn't use a double-boiler. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate & butter. Turned out perfect. Small slices with a scoop of vanilla ice c...

This was the easiest flourless chocolate cake I ever baked, and tasted just about as good as the more complicated recipes. I baked two for a party and, since I had only one springform, I used a...

This recipe is fantastic! We poured it into a cupcake pan instead of a cake pan, made a simple choclate ganache (heat up cream or half & half and stir into chocolate chips) and created restaura...

I have made this recipe multiple times and it always gets rave reviews. My boyfriend even requested this as his birthday cake! I don't have a double boiler, but I used a saucepan over low heat...
