    **Jubes**'s Note:

    A rich flourless chocolate cake that is also nut and gluten-free. For a gluten-free diet check the chocolate and cream is suitable. The cake can be varied by using different liqueurs in place of the brandy- Cointreau, Frangelico, Kahlua, Grand Marnier or Tia Maria. Can also use espresso coffee instead of the alcohol or just leave out the tablespoon of alcohol altogether. Serve with extra cream and strawberries or simpley serve dusted with extra icing sugar/superfine sugar . We have a man that sells books that leaves a collection of books each fortnight where I work. This recipe was from one of these books and was selected by a workmate as being suitable for my gluten-free diet. I baked it and took it to work to share with everyone. It was a hit with everyone :)

    Serves: 16



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F Grease well a 22cm round cake tin and line the base with baking paper. This cake is best cooked in a tin that has a removable base as it is much easier to remove from the tin for serving.
    2. 2
      Place the sugar and eggs in a bowl, beat together for 10 minutes, or until creamy, using a stand mixer/electric beaters.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and then remove it from the heat. Sit the bowl of chocolate over the saucepan of water, making sure that the water does not touch the bottom or sides of the bowl. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted.
    4. 4
      Add the brandy, cinnamon and chocolate to the beaten egg mixture.
    5. 5
      Lightly fold in the double thick cream to the mixture.
    6. 6
      Pour mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake for one hour, or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool in the tin.
    7. 7
      Run a knife carefully around the edges of the cake before removing from the tin. Dust with icing sugar to serve and serve with a dollop of cream and a strawberry.
    8. 8
      NOTE: This is a very moist thick cake. It will sink a little in the middle as it cools.

      I must admit, I approached this recipe with a great deal of trepidation. When I beat the eggs and brown sugar (I packed it tightly), the consistency was not exactly creamy, but more foamy liquid. After adding the chocolate, brandy, and cinnamon, however, it really thickened up. I had no idea what double heavy or double thick cream was, so I used regular heavy cream. Apparently, that worked out just fine. I used a round cake pan and the cake removed easily from it. The cake is just delicious, fudgy and rich! I would decadent is definitely an appropriate adjective to use! Thanks for sharing this great recipe and helping me to make my first flourless cake! Made for ZWT7.

      This is a great cake Jubes! Your directions are spot on. I was amazed at how the egg and sugar mix thickened when the other ingredients were added. The cake , when cooked, did fall a bit but that is expected of flourless cakes. I heaped strawberries onto the top of the cake and then dusted with icing sugar. I'm going to make this one for my gluten intolerant brothers birthday in December! Cooking for people with gluten problems can be tricky as gluten is added to things that you would not expect. Thank you Jubes for a cake that tastes great and is gluten free.
