“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 full bars of Ghiradelli Bittersweet Chocolate (8 oz. total) and skip the cocoa powder completely (ADD 8-10 min. cooking time). I still use the same amount of sugar. Using ALL chocolate bars gives this a silkier texutre not to mention a stronger chocolate flavor. 4 stars as written, 5+ stars for slight alteration. Serve with fresh sliced strawberries or raspberries and a dusting of powdered sugar for a dessert made for company.

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' dessert that I could only get at the most expensive places. This version has it dead-on; it is absolutely scrumptious and luxurious. It should be noted that I used semi-sweet chocolate morsels and Splenda, and it still came out excellent!

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 IT! Therefore, Flourless Chocolate Cake 1 from this site is the hands down winner of the Flourless Chocolate Cake duel. For an elegant dinner party, make Cake I. For a quicky for the kids, make Cake II.
