Flourless Chocolate Cake – Personal Kitchen Challenge #14

I’ve gotten kind of sidetracked on my personal kitchen challenges.  I had originally intended to try more “gourmet” type meals, dishes that required a certain expertise or finesse.  But I quickly (and out of necessity) started doing a lot of dishes that included things I couldn’t get here in Finland, like dishes that included Bisquick or limeade concentrate.  So for Valentine’s Day, I went back to what I thought was a more “gourmet” dish.  I decided to make a flourless chocolate cake using a recipe from the TV show Top Chef.

The recipe included 3 ingredients:  eggs, sugar, chocolate.  Despite the fact that I ended up using three mixing bowls, 3 prep bowls, a pot, and four different stirring utensils, this was actually quite easy to make.  Not only that, but it tasted delicious.  It’s a recipe I will definitely be using again. I only wish I had some ramekins to use for baking – I was relegated to using disposable oven-proof bowls, so the results weren’t quite as pretty as I had hoped.  Still, we ate every delicious bite.

Note to self:  pick up ramekins next time I go to Ikea…

I’m intentionally challenging myself in the kitchen, working with new ingredients, attempting more challenging dishes, and doing it all while grocery shopping in a foreign language.  Read more about my Personal Kitchen Challenge here.
