Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe Easy



Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe Easy

This Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe is decadent and rich without being overly sweet, made with bittersweet chocolate it provides  just the right amount of sweetness.  While it looks difficult to make it is really simple with a hand or stand mixer. The cake remains moist even after a long cooking time, almost like a molten cake, with slightly crisp edges. Ideal for those looking for gluten free deserts but delicious for anyone, I think the texture without  the flour is much better than a recipe with.

Ingredients:

6 eggs, separated

6 Tbsp. butter

10 oz. bag bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp. Almond extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

If You Get A Frugal Chick’s Newsletter Change Is Coming

If you receive A Frugal Chick’s newsletter you missed it yesterday!

The e-mail has always come to you from my e-mail address which is AOL.  This week AOL changed their rules so that I can no longer use it.

Now the newsletter will be coming from an address that ends in @afrugalchick.com.

The newsletter will be EXACTLY the same but for some of you this new address might mean it goes in your spam folder.

So I would love you all very much if around 3 p.m. today when you get your newsletter you make sure it will safely make it into your inbox.  I would hate for you to miss a deal!

Don’t get my newsletter?  Look in the upper right hand corner of my site and you can sign up!

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe



Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

I needed a simple Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe.  I had a more complicated recipe for chicken and mushrooms that included wine and shallots and several other ingredients that I made often.  However, this recipe was born of necessity,  needing to use what I had on hand instead of making a run for the store I had to make it a little simpler. It worked out deliciously and is much quicker to prepare- just 7 ingredients ( I had to cheat a bit on our 5 ingredients or less recipes) and it still has tons of flavor. It is a rich, comfort food that is good enough for company and easy enough to make after a long day of work-since it takes less than 30 minutes start to finish.

  Ingredients:

4 large chicken breasts

4 Tbsp. butter

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup milk

1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar

12- oz. can mushroom pieces

1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Melt 2 Tbsp. of butter in a large saucepan.

Brown chicken in butter over medium heat on each side for  5-6 minutes.

 Add mushrooms, scrape all the bits up from bottom and sauté until mushrooms begin to brown.
