This flourless chocolate cake is really tasty and really easy to make. With only a few ingredients, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t made this sooner.


200g quality chocolate drops
175g salted butter
6 free range eggs
50g honey
Large pinch sea salt
Icing sugar to finish
Cocoa to finish


  1. Heat the butter (but don’t boil it) and pour over the chocolate drops and honey. Stir in to melt and combine.
  2. Whisk the eggs until pale and creamy, this should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Fold in half of the melted chocolate and butter into the eggs followed by the remaining half.
  4. Pour into a greased and lined springform tin (the tin is important as the cake is delicate and can be difficult to remove).
  5. Bake for 35 minutes at 150oC or until firm to touch.
  6. Allow to cool, dust with icing sugar and cocoa and refrigerate before serving.

Now go and grab yourself a coffee and a slice of this light and gooey flourless chocolate cake! It goes great with crème fraiche or warm chocolate sauce to make it really indulgent.
