The first chocolate flourless cake I’ve ever had was a store bought one from Whole Foods Market. That was probably seven to ten years ago. Since then, we’ve had them on occasion, most recently we had it at the corner store. With Valentine’s Day approaching, I figured I would attempt to make one at home for the first time. I’ve adapted Skinny Sweets Daily’s recipe for this cake.
I must say, this is the fastest and easiest “cake” I’ve ever made. And definitively the cleanest. No flour mess to clean up from the counters. No need for a hand mixer either. Just a little mixing and whisking and voila. You get a perfectly moist, full flavor chocolate flourless cake. This definitively turned out a lot better than the time we tried making a chocolate cake from scratch. That was a complete disaster, but that’s another story.
While making this cake I realized I didn’t have enough cocoa powder. The girls were comfortably watching Saturday morning cartoons, so there was no way we were leaving the house. A quick search in the pantry and I discovered some Ovaltine. As a child, I preferred Ovaltine to Nestle Quik. To this day Quik is too sweet for me. So, I went ahead and mixed it with the cocoa powder.
