Flourless Chocolate Cake

Took almost a month to find a time that worked for everyone, but was finally able to have the whole crew over tonight… such a fun evening! Truly blessed to get to work with an awesome group of people who enjoy each other’s company. And this chocolate cake! I’m in love with this cake too — and I can’t even eat chocolate — because it is so ridiculously quick and simple to make. Thanks to King Arthur’s Flour for this gem of a recipe (which, of course, I couldn’t help but play with a little after reading Ali’s take at Gimme Some Oven.)

Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 325°F. Melt chocolate and butter together in a double boiler (or a small pot or bowl that can stack on top of another pot of boiling water), stirring until smooth and glossy. Beat eggs until frothy, then gradually fold into the chocolate mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients, pour into a greased and floured 8″ cake pan (or pie pan in a pinch) and bake for 22-25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then loosen from pan, turn onto a large plate, and flip right side up again onto another plate. Perfect topped with fresh berries!
