    Where to get flourless chocolate cake?

    My hubby and I love chocolate cakes. We have not been able to find one that is sinful and yet not too sweet. Any recommendations where we can get the real thing? We'll settle for any yummy ones made with flour.

    OK, I have two recommendations from a dedicated chocoholic:

    HALF BAKED CHOCOLATE PUDDINGS

    185g chocolate (buy the best you can afford, eg. Valhrona)
    100g butter
    3 eggs
    half teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup sugar
    4 tblspoons flour

    Melt the butter and chocolate together. Best done in a heat proof pan over boiling water, not allowing the boiling water to touch the pan. Whisk the eggs, vanilla and sugar together. Stir in the flour. Quickly stir in the butter/choc mix. Put in pre-greased small loaf tins/muffin tins/ramekins. Cook for 10-12 minutes. Timing is critical. You want it just cooked on the outside, but runny inside. Serve warm with icecream. Makes about 4, depending on the size of the tins. Hint: if making them for dessert, you can make the mix in the morning and leave them in the loaf tins until you are ready to cook them. Just pop them straight in the oven. This is really handy for dinner parties when you want to prepare things beforehand, not be cooking when your guests are there.

    LOW FAT CHOC FUDGE CAKE
    85g dark choc chopped finely
    half cup cocoa powder
    1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    half cup boiling water
    2 yolks
    quarter cup almond meal
    third cup plain flour
    4 egg whites

    1. Pre-grease 20cm round cake pan.
    2. Combine choc, cocoa and sugar with the water in a large bowl. Stir until smooth. Add egg yolks, whisk to combine. Fold in almond meal and flour.
    3. Beat egg whites in a small bowl with electric mixer until peaks form. Gently fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture in two batches. Pour into prepared pan.
    4. Bake in moderate overn about 40 minutes. Stand in pan 5 minutes. Turn onto wire rack to cool. Serve cake warm or cold, dusted with icing sugar and dotted with fresh strawberries.

    ENJOY

    You are welcome. Look forward to hearing how they turn out for you. I made the half baked puddings on the weekend. My waistline is not thanking me, but they were yummy if I say so myself !

    Any more comments on a good place/bakehouse for sinful chocolate cake?

    Never like fudge or pudding - looking for something similiar to Sache. Still on the sinful thought of the moment sitting at the Sache cafe. hubby said thats how my waistline been keeping up even on the thoughts.
