Flourless Chocolate Cake

This post is also available in Italiano

This cake without flour, gluten-free, and therefore suitable for people with Celiac disease, is very good, perhaps better than many other cakes made with flour.

I got the recipe from the new book on chocolate created by Corriere in collaboration with Slow Food.
I highly recommend it; it’s simple, fast to prepare, and everybody loves it!

  • Slowly add the confectioner's sugar, then the eggs, one by one, mixing well.
  • When the batter is uniform, line a plumcake mold with parchment paper, or grease it, and fill it by 2/3 with the batter, then put in the oven.
  • The cake will be ready after about 25 minutes. While you are waiting, you could make some fresh whipped cream...
