Spring is coming and it is time to start thinking about fun desserts and this Flourless Chocolate Cake is a must make!!
No Flour Needed
I have always been a big fan of flourless chocolate cakes, anytime it is on a menu I will order it (unless there is something caramel) but I have never made one at home. With Spring coming it is the perfect time to make this super decadent treat.
Now I know there are more traditional desserts for Spring like carrot cake, cupcakes, or maybe a fruit option, but for me it is all about chocolate (with a little kick).
Amping it up a bit
One of my favorite additions to almost every chocolate dessert is espresso powder. It really helps bring out the richness of the chocolate but it also gives it an extra depth of flavor that makes it truly something special. You won’t necessarily taste it but it adds that little something special that everyone will be asking what it is.
Now I know you may not be too excited about the espresso part, but trust me it is amazing and no one will know it is espresso unless you tell them.
I topped the cake with cocoa powder, just for the extra but of chocolatey deliciousness, but it was also be great with some powder sugar sifted over it as well. I served it with fresh whipped cream, but a little ice cream would be amazing…oh trust me this would have been the ultimate dessert (with some salted caramel sauce).
On its own it is pretty amazing…trust me everyone will love this chocolate treat!
