A month ago, the boy and I celebrate our one year anniversary. ^^
I knew all along that I'll be baking him a cake. The problem was, what cake to bake? He loves cheese, but I've baked quite number of cheesecakes for him. He loves fruit tarts, but I won't have enough time to make that. :(
HE LOVES CHOCOLATE!
But chocolate cake is like so boring.. Hmm.. Headache right??
Until I chanced upon a flourless chocolate cake recipe and I was like, "Oh ya! A flourless chocolate cake is just the right one to bake for a true chocolate lover!"
Most importantly, it is really simple! (I tend to bake simple cakes only? Oops. :P)
Just 3 ingredients needed. Can you guess what are they? No, don't scroll down for the answer yet!
8 large eggs, cold
450g chocolate of any kind, coarsely chopped (I use a mixture of dark and semi-sweet chocolates)
200g unsalted butter
Icing sugar (optional)
I love the recipe so much that I baked it a second time and topped with walnuts. :D It looks a bit like brownies?
But definitely much more moist than brownies!! More chocolatey too!!
Note that you should only try this recipe if..
YOU REALLY LOVE CHOCOLATE.
Unlike many flourless chocolate cake recipes which have sugar added, I refuse to do so. Why would I want to mask the true taste of chocolate?
Goes well with a scoop of chocolate as well! ^^
