Flour-less Chocolate Mousse Cake

This is a great gluten-free dessert. You don’t have to be gluten-free to love it. Dense and rich it is a great end for any meal. Simple to make and always a hit. I made this one for a clambake I’ll be going to soon. I decorated it with chocolate leaves but you can serve it plain, too.  Here is the recipe. If you want to avoid the alcohol you can substitute fruit juice, I like orange juice.

Flour-less Chocolate Mousse Cake

½ c. each sugar and water

1 stick butter

12 oz. semi sweet chocolate

6 eggs

¼ dark rum or other liqueur


Butter an eight inch cake pan and line with parchment. In saucepan heat together water and sugar until they boil. Stir in butter and bring to boil. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate until melted. Beat in eggs until smooth and stir in rum. Pour batter into prepared pan and place pan in a roasting pan. Pour boiling water into roaster to come up sides of pan 1 inch. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. Cool, invert onto plate.

Serve cake topped with whipped cream and decorate with raspberries, other fresh fruit or even toasted nuts. Dense and rich this cake serves 8-10.
