Flourless (Gluten Free) Chocolate Cake

Great Flourless Chocolate Cake RecipeThis flourless Chocolate cake recipe is perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can’t have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the pan using cocoa powder so it won’t leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten free.

Prep Time:
15 Min
Cook Time:
30 Min
Ready In:
45 Min


  • 4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch round cake pan, and dust with cocoa powder.
  2. In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt chocolate and butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Slices can also be reheated for 20 to 30 seconds in the microwave before serving.

      Awesome! I posted this recipe before I started making the recipes and posting pix. So I haven’t tried this one. I plan on making this one at some point and sharing how it turned on here.

      Glad you found it useful Nichol!

    This is a great and extremely easy recipe. Have made it multiple times for a coffeehouse at my church with a couple ppl who cannot have gluten. They love it… and it tastes like a fudgy brownie! We just top with powdered sugar. Excellent. Thank you!

    What is the serving size?? The recipe says 285 calories per slice–how many slices??

    This look delicious and I’m excited to make it for my friend who is allergic to gluten.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to
    help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d really appreciate it.
