Flourless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Sometimes you just need some chocolate! Right? That's where I was. So I found this flourless chocolate cake from Martha Stewart. Her cake called for adding espresso to the batter and the sauce. I don't have a problem with it but my husband doesn't like coffee. Can you believe that he has NEVER drank coffee? Therefore, he doesn't like it in deserts, so I left it out.

When it bakes up, it is light and the cake cracks as you cut it.

It doesn't affect the taste. Now add the chocolate sauce. I added some whipped cream. Whipped cream always makes everything better.

This would make a lovely special dessert or anytime you need something chocolate.

Eclectic red Barn: Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Sauce
Ingredients:

FOR THE CAKE

·         3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan
·         6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
·         6 large eggs, separated, at room temperature
·         1 cup granulated sugar
·         3 tablespoons instant espresso powder(optional)
·         1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
·         1 tablespoon vanilla extract

FOR THE GLAZE

·         3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
·         1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
·         2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·         1/3 cup heavy cream or plain soy milk
·         1/3 cup granulated sugar
·         1 tablespoon instant espresso powder(optional)
·         1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
Directions:
1. Make the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter bottom of a 9-inch springform pan, and line with parchment cut to fit. Melt butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
2.  With a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Add espresso and salt, and beat for 1 minute. Add vanilla and chocolate mixture, and beat for 1 minute.
3.  In a clean bowl and with a whisk attachment, beat egg whites until foamy. Slowly add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold whites into chocolate mixture in 3 additions. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4.  Bake until set, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a rack. Remove pan sides. Carefully lift cake with a spatula, and remove parchment.
5.  Make the glaze: Place chocolate, butter, and vanilla in a bowl. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil, stirring, and pour over chocolate mixture. Whisk until smooth. Serve glaze warm with cake. Top with whipped cream.

      You are so funny. If it will help, I find that flourless cake is lighter than regular.
