Flourless fudge cake

By | June 6, 2012

I have a story to tell you. About a flourless (gluten-free!) chocolate fudge cake.

I baked the cake and everything was awesome. It smelled terrific, was fun to decorate, and slipped out of its baking tin per-fect-ly. Now all we had to do was wait for Shabbos.

And then the phone call came. You know the one. The call from a friend inviting you for a meal, just when you’ve pulled a cake out of the oven, just when your veggie bin is overflowing with ingredients for the meal you thought you were making at home.

No matter. Of course we would go. Buuuuuuuuuut I really couldn’t start baking all over again, just to bring a pareve dessert.

So I sliced my fresh dairy cake into 15 pieces and sent it over for their Shabbos morning kiddush. (They have 10 kids. And the cake is dense, so a sliver is a decent serving.)

Actually, it was 15 slim pieces and one fat one. We had to taste it, too.

Need I tell you that it was delicious? Rich and chocolatey, thick but not too heavy. We loved it. Our hosts loved it.

And everyone lived happily ever after.

The end.

Yum! Do you think it would work with oil instead of marge/butter?

Just like with brownies, reducing butter (or sugar) also reduced the fudge-like consistency (which is kind of this cake’s hallmark trait). You might want to try going 50-50 with butter and oil to mitigate that.

I am not happily ever after..yet! I want some of that cake! Then we can talk about fairy tale endings here..

This cake looks devine! I may try making with with coconut oil to make it parve without margarine. I’ll let you know how it goes.
