Really Moist Flourless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache Recipe

Because I'd rather contribute to the world travel fund, than spend upwards from $65 a head in a cafe on average food, purely because it's Mothers Day, we decided to picnic at Brooklyn on the big day.  We did end up spending about $65, but
that got us 5 serves of crunchy and delicious take away fish and chips, which we ate on a picnic table, by the sea.

It was my job to bring the thermos of tea and the dessert, so I decided to make this really moist flourless chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. 

It's always good to have a few good chocolate cake recipes in your repertoire and this is a good one for the list. 

Really Moist Flourless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache Recipe

200g dark cooking chocolate
200g melted butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
6 eggs separated
200g  almond meal
Pinch of salt
Pinch of Cream of Tartar

Preheat the oven to 190 C
Grease and prepare a spring form tin with baking paper.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pot of hot water on the stove.
Mix the butter and sugar.
Add the egg yolks one at a time and combine well.
Add the almond meal.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gently fold into the chocolate mixture .
Add salt and cream of tartar and fold carefully.
Pour the batter into prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes at 190C, then 40-45 minutes at 180C

3/4 cup thickened cream.
200g dark cooking chocolate
1 good handful of almond slivers

Heat cream on the stove, but do not boil it. Break chocolate into pieces and drop into the hot cream.
Allow to melt whilst stirring.
Cool a little.
When the mixture starts to harden a bit spread over the top and sides of the cake.
Dress with slivered almonds.
Serve with cream.

So moist and delicious.

On Mothers Day the kids were as full on as ever and like all mothers, I am so lucky to have got a couple of good ones.

  7. That looks delicious. I have a no fail chocolate cake recipe but it does have flour. Thankfully we are all gluten eaters.

    1. Yep it's a decadent one, but I thought as mothers we were worth 6 eggs as a minimum.
