At one of our fun and fabulous Gourmet Club dinners recently, we were slated to bring dessert. Sometimes, it takes me days to figure out just the recipe I’m yearning to contribute. But when a serious – very serious – chocolate craving comes knocking, there is really no other option. Only one decadent dessert is designed with an intense chocolate demand in mind. This Flourless Chocolate Cake.
Flourless Chocolate Cake is also referred to as gluten-free chocolate cake or flourless chocolate torte. Whatever moniker you fancy, there is absolutely no denying the magical qualities of this Flourless Chocolate Cake. This cake is characterized by an unrestrained richness, chocolatey denseness, and a satiny smooth melt-in-your-mouth texture.
I never realized how easy it is to whip up a flourless chocolate cake at home until I started making this a few years ago. Since this magnificent chocolate dessert is so rich and is easily shared by a big group of friends, I grab every opportunity I can to make this cake to share. A little of this dessert goes a long way. Unless you give this flourless chocolate cake the privilege of being the meal itself. I may have indulged in a heftier slice of this cake for lunch, I don’t know.
The next time you’re making dessert for family or friends, reach for this flourless chocolate cake. Serve it up with fresh berries and freshly whipped cream for the ultimate scrumptious dessert. I love this easy Kahlua Whipped Cream for the perfect accompaniment to this particular cake. All chocoholics will get their fix, and your gluten-free friends will be thrilled.
Should you be so lucky as to have leftovers of this prized flourless chocolate cake, you’ll be happy to know it freezes exceptionally well. Just slice up the leftovers, wrap well, and freeze. Intense chocolate cravings, be satisfied.

**Recipe for Kahlua Whipped Cream is absolutely delish for this flourless chocolate cake, and highly recommended. At least, do a Stabilized Whipped Cream, to avoid the typical runny/melty tendency of whipped cream.
