I absolutely loved this cake! It is way easier than the last flourless cake recipe I tried. However, I also had little cooked egg peices throughout my cake - any suggestions as to what to do to prevent this?? I will definitely make this cake again, and hopefully mix the eggs in more smoothly. Loved it!

I made this cake for Valentines Day and it was amazing! I love chocolate, and espcially flourless chocolate cakes but I do like them more sweet so I followed the suggestion on here to use dark chocolate instead of semi sweet and it is delicious. So easy to make yet decadent and tastes like it was hard to make. Definitely will make again.

I was really looking forward to this, but ended up having to throw it out. Sigh. I followed directions carefully, but ended up with cooked eggs bits all through the cake and it never did set up right. I think the directions should tell you to let the chocolate cool longer before trying to stir in the eggs. I worry that cooling too long,though, would make the chocolate too thick and difficult to stir the eggs in. Tips would be appreciated!

Absolutely delicious! This is the easiest, best chocolate dessert you can make (and I always go for the chocolate dessert when eating out). I didn't have hazelnuts, so just sprinkled some powdered sugar through a paper doilie to make it pretty. This is just as good as the expensive "flour-less chocolate torte" served at a fancy restaurant nearby. I used Ghirardelli chocolate chips (2/3 semisweet, 1/3 double chocolate bittersweet) for the cake and their semisweet baking bar for the glaze. Stunning!!

I thought this recipe was great. I altered it slightly for Valentine's Day. I made it in a heart shape(cut a V in the cake after baked in an 8" round cake pan). I doubled the glaze then put rasperries over the entire top of the cake with finely sifted powdered sugar on top. It looked great and was really decadent!

Please don't review it if you haven't tried it! This is wonderful, I have been making flourless cake for years. I can't digest gluten, this is perfect. And a small slice goes a long way! It is so rich and decadent it is like eating something from a 5 star restaurant!

Delicious! The Name itself describes what it is. It's a FUDGE Cake, thus NO flour! Just enjoy!

This is a great cake. It is easy and delicious, yet very sophisticated in its presentation. It was a complete hit at a dinner party I had with my husband's coworkers.
I'm really bothered by the people who gave this cake a rating of 1 star who never bothered to try it. They based their prejudiced rating on the preconceived notion that a cake must have flour in it. Simply because their frame of reference is so limited, their ratings may deter others from trying this fabulous dessert. Shame on you!

Try using dark chocolate chips-it sweetens it a little and it maintains its dark color-cake doesn't need flour or for that matter sugar to be a cake. I actually used s.f. dark chocolate chips- everyone thought it had sugar in it. If you like airy cakes this is not for you however if you like a rich dark decadent cake this is perfect. I like the latter and I would say most people do that is why in coffee houses and bakeries you see more dense versions of cakes.

First let me just say that I do not understand why someone who hasn't made the cake would post a review?? That is totally annoying.
Now on to my review, and I <b>did</b> make the cake. :)
I enjoyed it very much. I love the dense consistency and the rich flavor. It was very simple to make, and I will make it again for sure!
Keep in mind that recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate. If you would like it sweeter you could use milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. You won't get that rich dark color or flavor, but it would be considerably sweeter.
