Flourless Chocolate Cake

This recipe I found in the our newspaper. I wanted to have it in sooner but you know how thing's keep coming up? It does not use flour and it can be used for July 4th for a family member who can not have flour and likes cake and chocolate. It surprised me!


The newspaper called it a chocolatey confection between fudge and cake. How can you not want to try it? I am a choc-aholic I admit it. This also has strawberries on it. However if you are also allergic to strawberries try something else, fruit is all so good!

Flourless Chocolate Cake

You will need a 9 inch springform pan. Spray with cooking spray or butter and cocoa. Shake off extra cocoa. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F


  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar divided
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate melted
  • 4 eggs separated, saving the yolk and the whites
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups strawberries


In one Bowl:

Beat butter until smooth. Add 1 cup sugar and beat until creamy. Add ground nuts, chocolate and egg yolks beat thoroughly.

In another bowl:

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Stir 1/3 of egg whites into chocolate mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites.

Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean.

Cool 30 minutes then release sides and slide onto serving plate.

Combine cream, vanilla and 2 Tbsp. sugar, beat until soft peaks form. Top cake with cream and strawberries. Enjoy!

My honey and I live a lo-carb lifestyle, can I use sweet and low as a sub for the sugar?

I make another kind of no-flour chocolate cake/torte out of food-processor whipped garbanzo beans. Yum!
