A pareve Flourless Chocolate cake is a natural recipe idea for Passover, but don't neglect this simple chocolate cake recipe during the year. It's an elegant and rich ending for a special meal.
Since so many of us are avoiding margarine these days, I've adjusted the recipe to make this pareve chocolate cake not only easier, but a tad healthier, too. Good news, chocolate IS healthy!
Nice just as this rich dessert is, you can still dress it up with a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce, or serve with whipped cream. Linda's Fruit Salad Recipe takes it up a notch. This flourless chocolate cake is great for your gluten-free guests, too.
6 ounces chocolate chips
2 ounces margarine
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease an 8 inch round springform pan (for best results, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper cut to fit, and grease as well) and dust with cocoa powder.
2. Set a heavy medium saucepan over medium low heat . Place chocolate, margarine and oil in bowl and stir until it begins to melt. Remove from heat and stir until melted and well blended.
3. Stir in sugar, cocoa powder, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Glaze if desired. Glaze recipe here.
