Mr. Food: Flourless Chocolate Cake

April 5, 2009 10:34:32 AM PDT
Makes 12 to 16 servings 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter plus extra for coating
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
3 eggs
Whipped cream for topping


1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Place a 12-inch square sheet of waxed paper in the plate and butter the waxed paper.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butter, the sugar, water, and coffee granules; heat over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the chocolate and butter are melted, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in the eggs one at a time until the mixture is smooth.

3. Pour the mixture into the waxed-paper-lined pie plate and bake for 10 minutes. The cake will not be completely set in the middle. Cool, cover loosely, then chill for 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.

4. When ready to serve, remove the cake from the refrigerator and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Invert the cake onto a large flat serving dish and remove the waxed paper. Top with dollops of whipped cream just before serving.
