Who Needs Flour?
Flourless cakes are a low carber’s best friend. Omitting flour completely in these dense, rich low carb cake recipes eliminate gluten and cut carbs drastically!
Throw chocolate into the mix and you’ve got yourself a decadent dessert to impress even the biggest chocoholic. Because flourless cake recipes don’t use any flour and barely rise at all, we decided to separate the eggs we used. Both parts of the egg were beaten until more than doubled in volume. The egg yolks were beaten until pale yellow and the egg whites until stiff peaks formed. This helped give our cake a bit of lightness among the dense chocolatey goodness. The more gentle you are when folding the egg whites into your cake batter, the airier the cake will become.
We used a bit of a heavy hand and ended with a denser flourless chocolate cake than we initially dreamt of, but it tasted amazing none-the-less.
For this flourless chocolate cake recipe, make sure to use unsalted butter and unsweetened.. pretty much everything. If you have semisweet chocolate, you will need to omit the erythritol by at least half and adjust your macros accordingly.
Speaking of macros, each slice of this amazing flour chocolate cake will amount to only 2 net carbs! Perfect for those late night chocolate cravings!
You can enjoy this sugar free chocolate cake warm, with a scoop of sugar free ice cream or whipped cream! It’s equally as enjoyable when it’s cold out of the fridge. How do you like to eat your cake?
