Recipe Ingredients for Chris's Flourless Chocolate Cake

12 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. strong freshly brewed coffee
2 T. liqueur (Kahlua, Chambord, brandy...any kind will do)
3 eggs
1 cocoa powder for dusting

Recipe Directions for Chris's Flourless Chocolate Cake

  1. Heat oven to 425F.

  2. Butter 8-inch springform pan.

  3. In medium glass bowl, combine chocolate, butter, 1/4 cup sugar, coffee and liqueur.

  4. Microwave on high 1-2 minutes until chocolate and butter are melted and smooth when stirred. (check after the first minute and stir at the 1 minute, 1.5 minute and 2 minute markers.)

  5. Whisk in eggs until smooth and VERY well blended. (Whisk until past the point where you think it's well blended, since a stray albumen 'fiber' really ruins the texture.)

  6. Turn mixture into prepared pan.

  7. Bake 13-15 minutes.

  8. Cake will not completely set in middle. Sides should pull away slightly from pan. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold.

  9. Use a slightly warm butter knife to separate the cake from the sides of the pan before releasing if the cake hasn't pulled away from the sides of the pan enough. Dust with additional cocoa powder or powdered sugar (optional)
