This flourless chocolate cake is everything you could ask for in a dessert: decadent, rich, and incredibly easy to make. It’s perfect for chocolate lovers who want a fancy-tasting treat without the fuss.

Why I love this recipe

  • Simple and quick: This cake comes together in one bowl and requires no fancy equipment. Cleanup is a breeze too!
  • Rich and decadent: This flourless cake is dense, fudgy, and bursting with chocolate flavor. It’s so good, you might just eat the entire slice (and maybe even go back for seconds!).
  • Gluten-free: No flour means this cake is perfect for anyone following a gluten-free diet. But don’t let that deter you if you aren’t – it’s simply delicious!

Baking tips

  • Prep is key: For guaranteed cake release, grease your pan well and line it with parchment paper (don’t skip greasing the parchment paper too!).
  • Chocolate matters: Use high-quality chocolate for the best flavor. Semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate works well, depending on your preference.
  • Don’t overbake: We want a fudgy cake, not a dry one. The cake is done when the center reaches 200°F on an instant-read thermometer.
  • Cool completely: Patience is key! Let the cake cool completely before adding the ganache glaze.
  • Setting the stage: For a perfectly set glaze, chill the cake in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Serving suggestions

  • Classic elegance: Dust the cake with powdered sugar and add a pop of color with fresh raspberries.
  • Creamy indulgence: Balance the richness of the cake with whipped cream or ice cream on the side.

This cake is a crowd-pleaser, perfect for birthdays, holidays, or simply satisfying a chocolate craving. It’s easy to make, beautiful to serve, and guaranteed to be a hit!
