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.

Butter a 9 inch springform pan, on bottom and sides.

Combine chocolate chips and butter in microwave safe dish, cook in 30 second increments, stirring each time until chocolate is melted thoroughly.

Gradually add in sugar and mix until stiff peaks are formed.  They are ready when you lift the mixer and  eggs mixture maintains its shape on the whisk.
