Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Coulis

Similar to a chocolate soufflé, this cake will rise, then fall slightly when cooled, leaving a cracked top. A fresh strawberry sauce balances the richness of the chocolate. The cake can be made up to two days in advance. For perfect, clean-cut cake wedges, dip the knife in hot water before cutting each slice.

Ingredient Line: 
8.5 oz. bittersweet (60% cacao) chocolate, chopped

Comments on this Recipe

Oh, this sounds delightful! :)

This flour-less cake is scrumptious. I've made it many times as my friends always ask for it for potlucks and when they come over and they suggest, why don't you make the flour-less choc cake!! each time it is successful and so easy.

Anything with sugar, in my opinion, is NOT healthy! There is no need to add sugar to any foods! Fresh strawberries are sweet already...they do not need and sugar additives! There are healthier recipes than this out there for flourless chocolate with strawberries.

it seems good.. i will try for sure.thanks.

That's an awful lot of eggs and butter. There are other recipes on the web that aren't so artery clogging (for flourless chocolate cakes).
