Dark, rich and decadent, that is what flourless chocolate
cake is meant to be.
In my tablescape that I posted for yesterday's
Tablescapes Thursday, I mentioned that my new dishes
can be baked, so I had to try something out right away.
Since Lynn at Happier Than a Pig In Mud
was having a meme featuring Paula Deen's recipes,
I found one in Paula's Best Desserts
Magazine that would be perfect for baking in
This is the perfect size for Paula's Flourless Cake.
(Do you find that you nibble on the chocolate while cooking?
So velvety and smooth now.
Paula's Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 C. butter
14 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped and divided or chips
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 C. sugar
6 large eggs
1 T. vanilla
1/4 C. heavy whipping cream
Makes 1-9 inch cake or 8-10 smaller servings.
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 inch round springform pan
with baking spray. Wrap up and around with foil.
In microwave melt the butter and 8 oz. semisweet chocolate
and the bittersweet chocolate. Heat for 1 minute, stir, then
heat for 30 second increments, stirring between each one
to prevent the chocolate from scorching. Stir until smooth.
Whisk in sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, whisking
between each addition. Whisk in vanilla and pour batter
into the prepared pan.
Set the foil wrapped pan in a 13x9 inch pan. Fill pan with
1 inch hot water. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until center is set.
For the individual ones, I baked it for 40 minutes.
Let cool in water 10 minutes, then remove and let
it cool in pan completely.
In microwaveable bowl mix remaining 6 oz. semisweet
chocolate and heavy cream. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, then
heat for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Spread chocolate over cooled cake and refrigerate
Here the cups are in the water bath. I was a little nervous
about that, but they did fine, after all they are oven safe.
I forgot to mention in my tablescape, the dishes are
I Godinger & Co.
I purchased them at Bloomingdale's Home.
I just love individual serving desserts. I topped
this one with some fresh violets from the garden.
In the individual serving you don't have to wait for
it to cool before you eat it! It was luscious.
Hope you give this a try. Hop on over to
