We had our first family dinner at our new house this weekend, and since my daughter-in-law is on a Gluten free diet I knew I had to make a dessert that she would also be able to enjoy. This flourless chocolate cake was the answer!
It was very chocolaty and fudge like in texture and "melt in the mouth" good! Even my youngest grandson loved it! You don't have to be Gluten free to enjoy this cake -- it definitely was a crowd pleaser.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Serves 10| Hands-On Time: 20m| Total Time: 2hr 00m
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- Heat oven to 350° F. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and dust with cocoa powder.
- In a medium saucepan, heat the butter with ¼ cup of the heavy cream over medium-low heat until the butter is melted. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and smooth; remove from heat.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder; whisk in the chocolate mixture.
- Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until puffed and set, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 1 hour. Run a knife around the edge of the cake before unmolding. Dust with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
This is one of the beautiful sunsets we see almost every evening over the nearby foothills. It reminds me of the John Denver song when he sand: " I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky!"
Last week I showed you a beautiful buck that happened to visit my backyard--click here to see that post. This little guy drops by daily to nibble on some grass and sun himself.
My cat sits by the door for hours watching him and other wildlife. Life is certainly a slower pace here for us all, and we're enjoying every minute of it!
