The batter for this cake is so smooth and creamy you can just tell it’s going to be amazing. Make sure you line your pan with parchment paper and spray it well before you spread in all that gorgeous chocolate goodness.

After the cake is baked and cooled, you are going to top it with a simple chocolate glaze. Of course, you could skip this step, but I think it makes the cake even more irresistible. I just spread mine to the edge of the cake, but you can spread it so that it drizzles down the sides if you prefer.

When it cools, it will lose its shiny finish and have a fudge like consistency. I think it’s the perfect chocolate topping, and it just melts in your mouth.

You can serve the cake as is, or top it with ice cream or whipped cream. I topped mine with raspberries, and I loved the fresh tang of the berries. Plus they look so pretty, don’t they? Sprinkle on a little powdered sugar to make it even more fancy.

This is a perfect dessert to wow your guests. It’s easy to make, but looks impressive. And every bite is pure bliss.

  1. I will be making this for my daughter in law’s birthday. I have tried other chocolate flourless cakes but this one seems so easy. Could I use a 9 inch springform pan?
