Flourless Chocolate Cake!

Hey everyone,

It's been a couple of weeks since I last did a baking post, so today I thought I'd share with you the recipe for a flourless chocolate cake! Enjoy - xxx.

Ingredients (roughly 12 slices):

250g of Unsalted Butter
300g of Dark Chocolate
365g of Light Brown Muscovado Sugar
135g of Ground Hazelnuts - you can blend them for 2 minutes in a food processor
85g of Cocoa Powder
6 Large Eggs
1 Vanilla Pod (split and seeds scraped out) or 1 tsp. of Vanilla Extract
1 and 1/2 tsp. of Sea Salt Flakes

Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm baking tin.

Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk to combine, then add the sugar and sift in the ground hazelnuts and cocoa powder.

Add the eggs, vanilla seeds and salt, giving it a good stir to mix. Pour the batter into the baking tin and bake for 30 minutes. After this time the cake should have risen but still have a slight wobble at the centre.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before serving with salted caramel or chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. It will stay gooey for several days wrapped in clingfilm and is equally delicious served cols with crème fraiche.

So, I hope you enjoyed this post and if you recreate this recipe, post a picture on instagram and tag me @louloves01 and #bakingwithlouloves.
