At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

And today's recipe that is super rich and full of chocolate-y goodness (Can you tell I love chocolate and think it's the PERFECT Valentine's food?!?!?): Flourless Chocolate Cake!

This is a recipe that I got from King Arthur Flour that I modified just slightly that is soy (if you use all soy-free ingredients), fish, nut and wheat-free and can be milk-free (see variations).  It's super decadent, full of chocolaty flavor and so very easy to make.  If you are a chocolate lover and a fan of rich desserts, this is for you!

Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 Cup soy-free chocolate chips
(I recommend Enjoy Life, which is also dairy-free, but you can use any chocolate that fits your allergen needs)
1/2 Cup salted, full-fat butter

3/4 Cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 large eggs
1/2 Cup cocoa powder

confectionery sugar and/or heart-shaped sprinkles for decorating

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Grease an 8-inch round cake pan.
  3. Put the chocolate and butter into a medium-sized sauce pan and heat over low heat, stirring continuously until the butter and chocolate and melted; transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Stir the sugar, salt and vanilla into the chocolate mixture until well-blended.
  5. Add the eggs to the mixture; beat the mixture until smooth.
  6. Stir in the cocoa powder until just combined.
  7. Pour/spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake the cake for 25 minutes.  (Note: The top will have formed a thin crust, and it should register at least 200°F on an instant-read thermometer inserted into its center, if you want to double check if it's done or not.)
  9. Remove the cake from the oven, and cool it in the pan for 5 minutes.
  10. Loosen the edges of the pan with a butter knife, and turn it out onto a serving plate.  (Note: You can leave it this way or re-invert it, whichever you like.  The edges will probably crumble a bit, which is perfectly normal, too.)
  11. Sprinkle the cake with confectionery sugar and/or heart-shaped sprinkles if desired, or enjoy as is.
Serves 8 to 12 servings.
Variations (Please keep in mind your individual allergen needs when using substitutions.):
  • Milk-Free: Substitute a dairy-free butter like Earth Balance for the butter and a dairy-free chocolate like EnjoyLife for the chocolate.
  • Use whatever flavor chocolate you like best: milk, white, semi-sweet, dark, etc. 
  • Mocha Flourless Chocolate Cake: To enhance the chocolate flavor, add 1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso powder.  To get a mocha flavor, add 2 or 3 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder.
  • You can serve this cake drizzled with caramel, berry or chocolate sauce or even topped with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.

So fudgy and rich!  Simply amazing!
