Flourless Chocolate Cake

Everybody loves a good chocolate cake, but among the chocolate cakes in my repertoire, this one is definitely always a big hit with all of my guests: it has the perfect crackly top and fudgy interior one dreams of when thinking about a decadent chocolate cake, and the added perk of being flourless, therefore gluten-free.

I got the recipe from a book on chocolate published by the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera ages ago, and I find myself going back to that page of the book over and over again whenever I host a dinner party – you just can’t go wrong serving this cake with a little side of unsweetened whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar. Also, it is very helpful that the cake only requires ingredients you probably already have at home, and comes together in minutes with just a bowl and a whisk, so… between you and a slice of heaven, there’s less than half an hour, including baking time!

If this cake turns out to be your jam, you might also want to give my amazing sugar-free and flourless chocolate soufflé a chance: the single-serve soufflés are a tiny bit fancier than this cake in terms of presentation, so they are guaranteed to impress your guests.
