Happy Birthday Captain with Flour-less Chocolate Cake ! !

Normally, we give the birthday baby a surprise but this year, plates turned. My husband gave me the sweetest surprise by coming home on his birthday. It was such a joy to see our little son excited at seeing his father come home unexpectedly. He is a serious chocoholic and what better treat than to make for him this truly deli-sh and decadent Flour-less Chocolate Cake. I doubled the birthday joy by making a super delicious Pineapple Swiss Roll too.

This Flour-less chocolate cake has to be in every chocolate lover's diary. This Fudgy Chocolate rich cake makes a very good dessert served warm with a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream and is wonderful served cold too. It took me so little time to make this but the end result was completely worth it. 

You will need:
Chopped Dark Chocolate - 110 gms
Unsalted Butter - 110 gms
Eggs - 3
Caster Sugar - 80 gms
Cocoa Powder - 45 gms
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

Preheat oven to 150 Degrees C.
Melt together dark chocolate and butter on a double boiler.
In another mixing bowl, beat together eggs and sugar till the sugar dissolves.
Mix the melted cooled chocolate mixture together with the egg mixture with the help of a spatula and finish off with the cocoa powder.
Line a cake dish of size 10 x 10 and pour mixture in it.
Place it in a bigger bake dish which has water in it and bake it for 45 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack and unmold it.
Pour Chocolate Ganache and chill until set.
Cut into squares and serve warm with a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream.


  1. Wow a treat for chocoholics !! Wasn't sure of it when I started making it , as it had no raising agent/flour , but it's everything you would hope it would be ! Ganache is amazing !! I didnt have corn syrup so didn't use any, are there any substitutes ??
