I served it with chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream, toasted coconut, crushed toasted cashews & a nice drizzle of maple syrup…

 

Flourless chocolate cake 

4 oz bitter sweet chocolate (use the good kind if you can – Lindt maybe?)..

1/2 c butter 

3/4 c sugar 

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla 

1/2 c cocoa powder 

1 tsp salt 

Line an 8′ pan with parchment paper then butter parchment. Melt chocolate & butter in a double boiler/bowl on top of a pot of simmering water or in the microwave (stirring in 30 sec intervals for about 1.5 mins) until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in sugar. Add eggs & vanilla, whisk well. Sift the cocoa powder & salt over chocolate mixture and whisk until combined. Pour batter into pan and make in a 375 degree oven for 25 mins. Cool then slice & serve – yum!

You could also serve it with vanilla ice cream & a berry compote (cook 1-2 cups berries with a touch of sugar for about 10 mins)…also yum!!!

…’cause you know…who doesn’t love chocolate!!!?!…
