A recipe for an easy flourless chocolate cake which is lightly scented with orange zest and cardamon.
I have been making this cake for a few months now; no I am not keeping it a secret, I just keep forgetting to share it with you. With the holidays coming up, I thought, this would be a perfect dessert to serve, as it is easy and very flavorful. The orange zest gives it a bit of zing, while the cardamon lightly adds a warm wintry spice. I like to serve it with creme fraiche which I sweeten with light brown sugar.
Recipe: Cardamon Orange Flourless Chocolate Cake
8 oz. good quality bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1 stick of good quality unsalted butter
1 teaspoon ground cardamon
1 orange, zested
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Creme the butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and mix just to incorporate. Add the eggs one at a time until combined. Mix in the chocolate and spices. Pour into a lightly buttered pan, I like to use a tart pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan. Serve. Eat.
