Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

This chocolate cake is simply amazing.The top a little crunchy and interior is soft, melting in your mouth... absolutely divine. :) It's almost a flourless cake, the recipe requires very few amount of flour which makes it so soft.

 

I made this recipe by using the one for lava cakes but changed it a bit to make a larger cake than individual ones. Baked it a little longer than lava cakes as I didn't want to be runny and turned into this irresistible cake. 

 

Every time I make this chocolate cake everybody loves it. It is rich, chocolaty and buttery. What else can you ask from a chocolate dessert?

How simple is this! I looks mouthwatering..... A little dollop of whip cream, or a raspberry sauce!

I wouldn't call this a pie, sort of almost a flourless cake in some ways, but regardless it looks and sounds very yummy. How long did it last once you made it? I'd have to make this before friends came over so I wasn't tempted to eat half of it myself.

I guess you are right... it's almost a flourless cake.. anyway . the name doesn't matter so much:) as it's delicious. I have to say it doesn't last long. I think it was done before it had the time to cool completely :P

I agree with another poster it is almost like a pie but does sort of look like a cake when it is all said and done. Call it what you want but the bottom line is, it is fantastic and everyone always loves it when I make it - my son calls it a pie and my hubby calls is a cake - I just call it good!

I always wanted to try a flour-less chocolate cake. I took the same measurement of the chocolate lava cake and jsut going bake it longer. Hope the cake comes out just fine. Waiting to just bite into that chocolatey moist cake.

This cake looks amazing! I want to bake this but I only have a 22 cm springform pan. Which quantities of ingredients do I have to use for that particular springform pan? Thanks in advance!
