  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 3 cups of sugar-free dark chocolate chips

How to make Keto Flourless Cake
  1. Preheat And Prepare: Preheat your oven to 170°C/340°F. Grease and line the base of a 10-inch springform cake tin.
  2. Melt The Decadence: In a heatproof bowl over simmering water, melt the butter and chocolate chips together, stirring until almost fully melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Whip Up Some Airiness: In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs on high speed until they double in size and become fluffy.
  4. Combine And Conquer: Gently fold a cup of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture to temper it. Then, gradually fold in the remaining egg mixture until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Bake To Perfection: Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the center is just set. The cake will sink slightly as it cools.
  6. Cool And Enjoy: Let the cake cool in the pan for 20 minutes before transferring to a serving plate. Dust with powdered erythritol if desired, then slice and savor!

Storage

Refrigerate: This keto chocolate cake can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days, covered in cling wrap or an airtight container.

Freezing: This cake can be frozen for up to 3 months and covered in cling wrap. I like to cut and store in individual servings, as you do not want to thaw and refreeze again.

Thawing: This cake is best thawed in the refrigerator overnight.

Tips For The Perfect Cake

  • Use high-quality chocolate: For the best flavor and texture, choose a good quality sugar-free dark chocolate.
  • Don’t overbake: Watch the cake closely as it bakes. It should be just set in the center. To test, insert a skewer or toothpick, if it comes out dry, it’s done.
  • Cool completely: Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing to prevent it from falling apart.
