Flourless Salted Chocolate Cake
This is the perfect time to bake my favourite chocolate cake! It’s simple to make and the secret to making this purely delicious cake is to use quality ingredients that taste absolutely amazing! It’s important you use room temperature eggs that whip up creamy and velvety. Take your time – put on some classic French music such as “Putumayo” and enjoy the process of creating your masterpiece. Make the cake the day before you need it – I find that gives it plenty of time to set after baking. The cake is not very sweet – but rich, dark and sensual. It’s perfect for after dinner celebration served simply by itself or drizzled with a little raspberry puree that cuts through the richness.
What’s great about it
The cacao in dark chocolate is rich in magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, riboflavin and essential micronutrients for health and vitality. The high flavonoid content of cacao has been scientifically linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Cacao contains theobromine that boost endorphins and increases mental alertness. Eggs are high in protein and contain all the essential amino acids needed for growth and repair. Butter provides good amounts of short- and medium-chain fatty acids, which support immune function, boost metabolism and have anti-microbial properties. When butter comes from cows eating green grass, it contains high levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a compound that gives excellent protection against diseases and also helps your body build muscle rather than store fat.
