**Flourless Chocolate Cake:**

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 113g
  • 200 g good quality dark chocolate chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 g sugar adjust up to 125g for sweeter taste
  • 30 g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp espresso powder mixed with 1 tsp hot water

**Chocolate Sauce:**

  • 60 g butter 4 tbsp
  • 60 g dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 20 g sugar
  • 30 g cream 2 tbsp


  • Preheat the oven to 375F and line a 9” cake pan with parchment paper and butter.
  • Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave in 20s increments for the cake.
  • While the chocolate is melting, whisk eggs and sugar for 5-7 minutes until thick, ribbony, and light in color.
  • Pour the melted butter and chocolate into the egg mixture and fold together.
  • Sift in cocoa powder and salt, then gently fold. Add the coffee and fold again.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached.
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the sauce. Melt butter and chocolate, whisk egg and sugar, and mix the two batters similarly to the cake. Heat over medium-low heat until the mixture thickens. Add cream and cook until you get a sauce-like consistency (it will thicken more as it cools).
  • Transfer the cake to a stand and pour over the sauce.
  • Enjoy it as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
