Chocolate lovers dream. Sweet rich Flourless Chocolate Cake checks all the boxes. It’s like brownie meets fudge meets chocolate cake. Every bite is meant to be savored and that I shall do.

Did I mention that it’s a 5-Ingredient super simple recipe (thank you What’s Gaby Cooking)!

Classically Flourless Chocolate Cake is served with a dusting of powered sugar and fresh raspberries. I made a gorgeous silky smooth Raspberry Puree (getting a little fancy) which looks so pretty on the plate.

Wouldn’t this make a beautiful Easter Dessert? It smiles of Spring.

And then there’s the decadent caramel drizzle version topped with scoops of ice cream. Sometimes less is more I know. But sometimes a celebration is in order and you just want to go big!

There was an evening last summer, much to the kid’s delight, that we made a Flourless Chocolate Ice Cream Cake. Big fun!

No matter how you serve it, whether you follow a Gluten Free diet or not, Flourless Chocolate Cake is a legitimate treat and one of my favorite Adventures in Chocolate.
