Healthier Flourless Chocolate Cake

This is my kinda cake.

Rich and totally indulgent.

It’s the kind of cake you can bring to a party, and no one would be able to tell that you’ve upgraded the ingredients!

While it’s definitely still on the decadent side of things, this fudge-y treat is properly combined, and free of refined flours and sugars. With only five ingredients, it’s also quick and easy to prepare!

A definite perk when a chocolate-craving strikes.

Healthier Flourless Chocolate Cake (refined-sugar-free)
makes one 8-inch cake

adapted from this recipe

Ingredients:

4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
3 whole eggs
1/2 cup grass-fed butter, or coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup honey

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375F, and grease an 8″ spring-form pan generously with coconut oil or butter.

Melt the baking chocolate and butter together, stirring until completely smooth. (You can use a double-boiler for this, but I prefer to simply throw the chocolate into an oven-safe bowl, and melt it in the oven for about 4-5 minutes.)

Combine the melted chocolate/butter with the cocoa powder, honey, and eggs, then whisk well until a smooth batter forms.

Pour the batter into the greased pan, and smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes, until the center looks firm. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove the sides (this is why I like using the spring-form pan!) and allow to cool completely before serving.

I recommend cutting and serving small slices… this cake is RICH!

A little goes a long way.

This cake should keep for up to a week… if you don’t eat it all before that.

Notes
This makes a less-sweet, dark chocolate cake. If you'd like it to be a little sweeter, I'd recommend using 70% dark chocolate instead of the unsweetened baking chocolate. ©Detoxinista.com

Hope you enjoy it!
