Ingredients

  • One 7-ounce block 70 percent chocolate, such as Valrhona or Cordillera
  • 1/8 Cup good cacao powder
  • 1/6 Cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup hot, strong coffee
  • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin coconut oil, plus more for greasing
  • 1/2 can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 4 drops coconut extract
  • Powdered sugar, for topping
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease four 4-inch tart dishes or eight 5-ounce ramekins with the coconut oil.

Chop the chocolate into 1-inch pieces and place in a food processor with the cacao powder and sugar. Pulse well until chopped. Add the hot coffee and pulse again until the chocolate has melted. Add the eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, and coconut extract and pulse to mix well. Pour the mixture evenly into your tart dishes or ramekins. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool a little bit and serve warm with vanilla ice cream on top.

Flourless Chocolate Cake Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Flourless Chocolate Cake Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
