Personal Flourless Chocolate Cake
When You Want Some, But Not Too Much
You don’t want a big, tempting, delicious chocolate cake talking to you from the kitchen for the next several nights while you’re trying to mind your own business. But when you’re dying for something so rich and satisfying (and real), Flourless Chocolate Cake is not the worst thing in the world when you consider you can pronounce all the ingredients. Just 5 simple, real ingredients. And, it’s gluten-free.
I discovered the full recipe at geniuskitchen.com, and have made it several times in the full-size 10-inch springform pan. Since that is a LOT of delicious chocolate cake to test my iron will against night after night, I pared it down to a 1-person recipe that could be for 2 if you like. The smaller batch is more manageable, and also contains less guilt. It’s one thing to have a nice big piece of cake, it’s quite another to eat a half of a cake because you just can’t stop picking at it.
I personally love some Cool Whip (what did you say?) to bring out the richness of the chocolate. Whipped cream may be a slightly healthier choice. Ice cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar and/or cocoa powder (hm, a little cinnamon?) is always nice. Or G) All of the above.
