I love chocolate cake recipes, but this one has to be the best I’ve ever had! It’s so easy to make and really tastes amazing!

Chocolate Cake Ingredients:

8 ounces of bittersweet chocolate, chopped or in chips

6 large eggs

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar

3/4 cup almond flour (can also be replaced with hazelnut, pistachio, or walnut) *See note below*

Pinch salt (optional)

How to Make a Flourless Chocolate Cake:

The first step to making a flourless chocolate cake is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, grease a 8×8 inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray and then line it with parchment paper. Add the chopped semisweet chocolate chips and stir until they’re completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes or until it reaches room temperature. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, flour (if you’re using it), and cocoa powder. Gradually pour in the cooled chocolate mixture while whisking vigorously with a wire whisk or hand mixer until everything is well-blended.

How to Create the Perfect Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake:

A good chocolate cake recipe is essential, but finding a flourless chocolate cake recipe that is gluten-free is even more critical. Gluten-free flourless chocolate cake recipes are hard to come by, but this one is easy to make and tastes delicious! Here’s how:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and grease a 9×13-inch pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until they are light yellow in color. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until fully combined. Add the melted butter and vanilla extract to the mixture and whisk again until smooth.

Homemade Flourless Cake Recipe:

For a delicious flourless chocolate cake recipe, you’ll need:

6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (or any other type of chocolate)

4 large eggs, separated

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8-inch round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. In a double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate until it is completely smooth and then remove it from heat and set aside to cool slightly. Meanwhile in a bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar on high speed until the mixture turns pale yellow and thickens slightly in texture. Add vanilla extract and salt to taste, and mix well. Add the cooled chocolate to the yolk mixture gradually while continuing to mix on low speed until just combined; be careful not to overmix as that will cause your cake batter to turn into scrambled eggs!


This recipe for flourless chocolate cake is easy to make and yields a rich, chocolatey dessert. It’s perfect for those who want to cut out refined sugars from their diet and it can be made gluten-free as well. The only thing you’ll need is an oven, a large mixing bowl, and the ingredients. You’ll also need about two hours of your time. This recipe doesn’t call for any eggs or egg whites so there’s no risk of eating raw eggs which is great news if you have certain dietary restrictions or are just looking to avoid eating raw eggs. However, this cake doesn’t rise very much because there’s no baking powder, but don’t worry because it still tastes perfect!
