Flourless Chocolate Kahlua Cake

Do you remember your first taste of a flourless chocolate cake? It was pretty amazing, wasn’t it? I think I baked up a different version for about 10 Christmases in a row. There would have been a revolt had I made anything else. Rich and dreamy, what’s not to love? The ingredients are quite basic, chocolate, butter, sugar and eggs. Plus a generous slosh (a FULL cup!) of Kahlua in this case. Baked in a water bath for the silkiest results (a water bath ensures an even baking temperature), this is truly a special occasion dessert!

A Guest Post for My Lovely Friend

Today, I am honored to guest post for Chris of The Café Sucré Farine. She and her husband are a dynamic blogging duo…Chris cooks and bakes (her cupcakes and desserts are to die for!) and her hubby takes incredible photos. When were in the Secret Recipe Club together, I was lucky enough to have been assigned her blog one month. I made these toffee cookies which are still some of my favorite cookies ever. Besides being top notch in the kitchen, Chris is a sweet and caring friend, mom and grandmother. She’s taking a little time off from her blog to help out with her newest grandbaby. So I thought I’d share one of our favorite desserts,a flourless chocolate cake. And this one has a little twist: Kahlua! Hurry on over to visit Chris if you haven’t discovered her magnificent blog yet. Every morsel she shares looks incredible!!

  1. Hi there! I did not grease my pan and realize it is not in the instructions. I just want to make sure it’s right to skip that part 😉 I am baking this right now for my husband’s birthday. Can’t wait to try it! And will post how it turned out. Thanks!! ;D

    • Yes, please let me know how it turned out! I think when it cools it will pull away from the sides a bit, but you’ll still need to run a thin knife around the edge before unmolding it. Hope your husband enjoys!!!
