A very rich flourless chocolate cake which should be made a day ahead for best results. These quantities make a large cake.


Serves: 12 

  • 500g dark cooking chocolate, chopped
  • 500g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup (250ml) brewed espresso coffee
  • 1 cup (155g) packed brown sugar
  • 8 eggs

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Extra time:8hours chilling  ›  Ready in:9hours20min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line the bottom of a 23cm round cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Bring butter, coffee and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  3. Place chocolate in a large bowl and add boiling hot coffee mixture. Whisk until smooth. Cool slightly. Whisk in eggs. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Place cake pan in a baking tray. Pour enough hot water into the baking tray to come half way up the sides of the cake pan. Bake until centre of cake is set, and a skewer inserted comes out clean with a few moist crumbs attached, about 1 hour. Remove from water. Chill overnight.
