Flourless Chocolate Cake

I seriously need to get over my obsession with chocolate and raspberries…

For now however, here’s another perfect opportunity to combine this epic flavour combination! This fudgey decadent flourless chocolate cake is super simple to make and most of all just needs one bowl! Yay!

Important tip when making this, is to follow the recipe exactly – the digital scale is your bestie!


  • 115g butter
  • 170g great quality chocolate (I used 55% Lindt choc), roughly chopped
  • 135g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1.5 tsp’s vanilla extract or essence (depending on your preference)
  • 4 eggs
  • 28g cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 177°C. Prepare your cake pan by greasing it fully, inserting a round disc of baking paper then greasing above the baking paper to ensure it will not stick.
  • Using a bain marie or double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the sugar, coffee and vanilla and whisk into the chocolate mixture. Whisk in the eggs until incorporated then whisk in the cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  • Place a large roasting pan, filled 2/3rds with boiling water on the bottom rack of the oven. Then place the cake pan on the middle rack of the oven and shut the door. Trust me this will make it so moist and delish!
  • Bake for 30 minutes and test with a toothpick (should come out clean with just a few most crumbs).
  • Once it comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for 10 minutes then remove and allow to cool completely. Thereafter you can pop it into the fridge or store in a airtight container.
  • Top with a sprinkling of cocoa powder and anything else you wish really. I just added some whipped cream and raspberries. Yum!

Chocolate Fondant

Just in time for the weekend, ready to impress your guests or just your tummy! Because you deserve it, you made it through January and February! 🙂 How manic have these first two months been? With all that’s happening in the world and the jam-packed kick start to the year, we need a moment. This Chocolate Fondant recipe is quick and easy and oh-so-lusciously-delicious!

If you do whip them up, please do send or tag me in the pics and let me know what you think?


  • 125g butter (have some extra for greasing)
  • 1 Tblsp cocoa powder (have some extra for dusting)
  • 125g good quality chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 60g caster sugar (Natura Sugars golden caster sugar is great!)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 100g flour, sifted


  • Preheat the oven to 180C. Prepare your ramekins (or ovenprood moulds if you want to pop them out when plating) by greasing them with the extra butter and lightly dust them with the additional cocoa powder.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a bain marie or create your own bain marie by placing them in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (make sure the base does not touch the simmering water).
  • Using an electric whisk, beat the sugar, eggs and egg yolks until they’re pale and fluffy.
  • Pour the melted butter/chocolate mixture over the egg mix and gently fold in the sifted flour and cocoa, using a metal spoon.
  • Place the ramekins/moulds on a baking tray. Fill the prepared ramekins with the batter and bake in the preheated oven for roughly 8 minutes.
  • Once removed from the oven, they are ready to devour! The centre should be soft with a silky chocolate sauce. Serve with a scoop of your favourite ice cream, whipped cream or creme fraiche and a dusting of cocoa powder. Yum!
