Flourless cakes are especially made for people with gluten intolerance. However, they are equally delicious and healthy at the same time . Eggs proves to be the binding agent to form this yummy and moist chocolate cake full of decadence.


Ingredients :


  • Water- ½  cup  
  • Salt- ¼  tsp
  • Sugar-  ¾  cup
  • Eggs-  6nos
  • Dark chocolate – 1 cup
  • Icing sugar-for dusting
  • Butter -1 cup
  • Chocolate syrup -1 tsp


Preparation time:  60 minutes


Procedure :


  1).  To commence baking, preheat oven to 300°F.


  2).  Grease the baking tin  with butter.


  3).  Heat  a pan and dissolve water , sugar, salt.


  4).  Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler .


  5).  In a another bowl, blend butter and add the liquid chocolate .


  6).  Incorporate the dissolved mixture of water, sugar & eggs. Slowly add in the eggs one at a time.


  7).  Pour in the batter into the greased tin & place this into another tin with warm water added  half-way. This avoids burning , and helps create a steam like environment for baking.


  8).  Bake for 45 minutes. Although the cake would still look moist , prick it to check if it comes out with a gooey texture.


  9).  Remove the tin, on completion of baking. Chill it over night .De-mould the tin by placing it in hot water.


  10).  Serve it as a chilled cake or a warm one, & a dusting of icing sugar or a drizzle of chocolate syrup or whipped cream , vanilla ice cream.

I love French flourless chocolate cake for it's own sake. It's a wonderful rich flavor.


Opera cake can easily be made gluten-free (as it's an almond flour sponge with just a little wheat flour in the standard recipe).
