the easiest and best cake ever

I love any excuse to bake and this is by far one of my favourite recipes. 
This cake is so deliciously rich and looks fancy but so easy to make which is great in my books. I'm having some friends over later tonight for dinner and decided it was about time I made this again.

I use this recipe by Martha Stewart (of course), It's perfect and relatively inexpensive too... it's like a big fudge brownie!

Chocolate Flourless Cake 
  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter (plus more for spring form pan)
  • 8 ounces of bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate (I used semi sweet) 
  • 6 large eggs separated 
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar 
  • icing sugar for dusting 
  • whipped cream or fruit to serve
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees with the rack in the center. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until completely melted. Let cool slightly. Whisk in egg yolks.

In a large bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add granulated sugar, and continue beating until glossy stiff peaks form. Whisk 1/4 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture; then gently fold in remaining egg whites.

Pour batter into the prepared pan, and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and is set in the center, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack; remove sides of pan. Serve at room temperature, dusted with confectioners' sugar. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
