Ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cake
 
Recipe from Cook's Illustrated, March 1998

Notes: On Saturday morning, we decided that the pistachio cake might not be enough for all the adults plus children, so I quickly baked this flour-free chocolate cake recipe that had only three ingredients. I used a false bottom 8" tin, instead of a springform, but otherwise followed the recipe as directed, adding in the optional Kahlúa for flavour. Checking for doneness is easy, as you just need to check the internal temperature. Predictably, this cake was a hit: rich, chocolate flavour, without being too dense or fudgy.
