My friend Jenn has a Gluten sensitivity and she asked me if I would do a little research for her and locate a no fail Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Being a girl that has a deep love for chocolate ANYTHING I responded…. “If I must”. So out into the recipe world I went and after three tries I have landed on what I think is the BEST Gluten Free cake to ever grace the planet.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
Serves:10 (It is very rich) Total time: 2 hours
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for the pan
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for the pan
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
5 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
Heat oven to 350° F. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and dust with cocoa powder.
In a medium saucepan, heat the butter with ¼ cup of the heavy cream over medium-low heat until the butter is melted. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and smooth; remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder; whisk in the chocolate mixture.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until puffed and set, 35 to 40 minutes.
Let cool in the pan for 1 hour (this is very important! DO NOT take out too soon). Run a knife around the edge of the cake before unmolding.
Using an electric mixer, beat the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream with the sour cream and confectioners’ sugar until soft peaks form. Dust the cake with confectioners’ sugar and serve with the whipped cream.
