Chocolate Decadence – The Eighties Most Iconic Dessert

Posted on

This “flourless” chocolate cake was all the rage in the 1980’s, and looking back, it all makes sense. As I vaguely remember, the decade celebrated decadent overindulgence, and this dessert is that, and more. By modern standards, this cake is ridiculously rich. In fact, some of you may find it too intense, but most true chocolate fiends will be in heaven.

Ingredients for one 9-inch cake pan (this is extremely rich cake, so you can easily get 12 to 16 servings):
18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (62% cacao)
10 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon flour
5 large eggs, room temp, or slightly warm for best results
tiny pinch of cayenne and salt
– serve with ice-cold fresh raspberry sauce

* Bake at 425 F. for probably 12-15 minutes depending on the oven, until just barely set, with a jiggle below the surface. The cake will firm up as it cools.

TIP: If you want to remove your cake from the pan for presentation, just set it in a pan of hot water for a minute, and it will pop right out.
