This was made during my lil’girl’s birthday week n was custom made to suit her taste buds. She just turned ‘1’ n has no specific liking for sweet treats.😣🙄 To a kid whose taste buds cannot process anything sweeter than digestive biscuits, the thought of giving a chocolate cake was far fetched. So I wanted to create something that was tasty, not too sweet, appeared cute n of course was gluten-free.

So this is a 3 ingredient cake/chocolate (take ur call) that needs very little baking time. U’ll need good quality dark chocolate( not any compound) with 50-53% cocoa. Chocolate with any higher % of cocoa would call for added sugar, or else the cake would taste bitter.

This recipe would make approx. 10 small chocolates. You could triple the quantity n make a 6″ Choco cake. Also if making a large cake, follow the same procedure n pour the cake batter directly into the inner cake tin without the cookie cutter setup. Now let’s c how to do it.

Mini Flourless choco cake recipe

Ingredients:

  • Dark chocolate – 115 gms.(I used Bournville dark chocolate with 50% cocoa)
  • Unsalted butter – 1/4 cup(approx.55 gms.)
  • Egg – 1 no.

Recipe steps

  1. Melt the butter n chocolate together in a double boiler. This could also be done in a microwave.

  3. Take egg in a bowl, keep this over a double boiler n whisk till the egg feels lightly warm.

  9. Now let’s get the setup ready for baking these mini chocolates or cakes. Take a small (min 6″) cake tin(greased n bottom lined with butter paper) n place small cookie cutters(well greased) inside. Place this cake tin setup inside a large cake tin.

  11. Pour the cake batter inside these small cookie cutters. Pour hot water inside the large cake tin, surrounding the smaller cake tin to approx. 1″ ht. We r making a steam/bake setup ready with this method.

  13. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C for 5 mins. n take the cake tins off the oven. The cake would be half done at this point.

  17. Let the cake cool completely n slowly run a knife around the cookie cutters n demould. I have stacked the cakes one above the other n decorated with rice crispies just to make it appealing for the birthday girl.

  19. If baking a larger cake follow the same procedure, let the cake rest in the tin till completely cool n then refrigerate till it’s hard before demoulding.
