Valentines Special in 2012, it’s all about Chocolate for most people here’s a delicious recipe for a flourless chocolate cake.
When we were at Harry’s Hideaway a couple of weeks ago, my hubby and shared his Flourless Chocolate cake. it was absolutely delicious with his homemade ice cream.
Harry’s recipe is a bit of a secret, so I found this one on the food network..
Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 pound of semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 lb of unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes, plus 1/2 Tablespoon
1/4 cup Kahula
8 large eggs
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Confectioners’ sugar for garnish
Pre-heat over to 325 Degrees F
Using 1/2 Tablespoon butter grease a 9” springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
Combine the chocolate, butter, Kahula in a metal bowl in simmering water or use a double holier. Melt the mixture, stirring constantly, until smooth and creamy about 5 minutes; reserve.
Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a large bowl and whisk with an electric mixer until until frothy, almost until it’s double in volume, about 5- 10 minutes. Fold 1/3 egg mixture into chocolate mixture using a rubber spatula. Repeat this process 2 or more times – until all of the egg mixture has been folded into the chocolate mixture.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and place in a pan filled with water, enough water that goes up 1/2 up the pan. Bake until cake has risen slightly and edges are just beginning to set about 40-45 minutes. Remove cake from the oven and cool the cake pan on a wire rack, when cool refrigerate overnight.
When ready to serve, invert cake onto a large plate and peel away parchment paper from the bottom. Garnish.
