1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter (or dairy-free alternative)
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 large eggs
Powdered sugar or cocoa powder for dusting (optional)
Fresh berries for garnish (optional)
Whipped cream or dairy-free whipped topping (optional)
1. Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
2. Prepare the Cake Pan:
Grease a 9-inch (23 cm) round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
3. Melt the Butter and Chocolate:
In a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, melt the butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips together until smooth. Stir until well combined. Allow it to cool slightly.
4. Mix Dry Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, and salt.
5. Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients:
Add the melted chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
6. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next one.
Stir in the pure vanilla extract.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the cake has set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (it shouldn't be completely dry).
Allow the flourless chocolate cake to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes, then run a knife around the edge to loosen it. Invert it onto a serving plate and remove the parchment paper.
9. Garnish and Serve:
Once the cake has cooled completely, dust it with powdered sugar or cocoa powder, if desired.
Garnish with fresh berries and serve with a dollop of whipped cream or dairy-free whipped topping if you like.
