Flourless Chocolate Cake!

Para ler em Português, clique aqui.

I'm on a diet, I need to fit in my wedding dress!
My nutricionist recommended me to eat berries everyday, because of the antioxidants.
Sooooo, I think this cake is a good way to have my berries today! ;)
I'm allowed to eat one portion of junk food once a week, so this week I'm eating a piece of this delicious cake!
And then, back on my diet!

I got this recipe here

300g/10½oz plain chocolate, broken into pieces
225g/8oz caster sugar (I used regular)
175ml/6fl oz boiling water
225g/8oz salted butter, cut into cubes, plus extra for greasing
6 free-range eggs, separated
1 tsp instant coffee powder
2 tsp vanilla extract

For the topping
200ml/7fl oz crème fraîche (I used chantilly)
255g/9oz summer berries
1 tbsp plain chocolate, grated (I didnt use)
Icing sugar, to dust

Preparation method
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease and line the base of a 23cm/9in springform tin with baking parchment. Blend the chocolate and sugar in a food processor until a fine powder forms. Add the boiling water, butter, egg yolks, coffee powder and vanilla extract and blend until well combined.In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed, then, using a metal spoon, gently fold into the chocolate mixture.Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool in the tin, then transfer to the fridge for 2-3 hours.

To serve, remove the cake from the tin and place on a serving plate or cake stand, spread the crème fraîche on top, then scatter over the berries. To decorate, grate some chocolate over the top, or dust with icing sugar.

Manu, querida,

Por coincidência, tenciono fazer um bolo de chocolate sem farinha para o aniversário de minha filha, no próximo dia 13. Já até tenho uma velha receita separada. Aí você vem e faz um, rsrs. E ficou lindo, viu? E este "chantilly" de crème fraîche mais as frutinhas
só melhoraram tudo, rsrs.
