Yep. Ghirardelli Flourless Chocolate Cake (Gluten-Free) – with only THREE ingredients. Yes you read that right. It’s quite a mouthful, yet it only has 3 simple ingredients. And it’s not too hard. You will see.
A friend of mine passed this recipe for a Gluten-Free Flourless Chocolate Cake along to me saying she couldn’t believe that a Flourless Chocolate Cake would actually be good. She felt like the whole cake would just fall apart or taste bad. So she asked me to try it and see what happened. No problem, I game. I do this all the time.
So I took it home, and I googled to see if others had made it, and it looks like there are dozens of posts. It’s pretty popular as chocolate cakes go. It also looks like it may have originated from Cooks Illustrated, as my recipe looks almost identical to one they have posted. That means it should be really good, right? I’ve actually never had a bad recipe come from Cooks Illustrated.
So was the Gluten-Free Flourless Chocolate Cake any good?
So far everyone who has tried it said they loved it. WE loved it. All of us, including the kid who doesn’t like chocolate in my house. (weirdo!) This is always a good thing. Pretty sure it will be making an appearance on our Easter table this year.
Rich deep chocolate flavor, extremely creamy texture, almost like thick mousse… just amazing. I chose Ghirardelli Chocolate for two reasons, one I almost always have a ton in our pantry, but two, I think the flavor is so much better than some of the others out there.
Usually when a recipe calls for baking chocolate, I choose Ghirardelli (and no this is NOT an ad or sponsored in any way, they have no idea who I am, I just love their chocolate). Using the Ghirardelli Chocolate made this cake SO good.
