My friend Katrina gave me this recipe. It's so, so easy and so very delicious (and just a bit decadent!). I tried lots of flourless chocolate cake recipes before finding this - it's definitely the best! The cake has a tendency to sink a little once it cools - don't worry - that just makes it nice and fudgy in the middle!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven at moderate temperature (180C/350F).
  2. Grease a 23 cm round cake tin and line the bottom with baking paper.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar together until creamy - about 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate by microwaving it according to instructions (about 2 minutes on low setting - checking and stirring frequently) or by boiling a pot of water, removing it from the heat, and then placing the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and putting it over the pot of boiling water, stirring until the chocolate melts (make sure the chocolate bowl does not touch the boiling water in the pot).
  5. When the chocolate has melted, add it to the egg and sugar mixture and mix together.
  6. Add the Grand Marnier and cinnamon to the mix and stir.
  7. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture.
  8. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin, and bake for one hour, or until an inserted metal skewer comes out clean.
  9. Cool in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack when cool.
  10. Serve with strawberries.
