Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Flourless Chocolate Cake

Alex’s birthday is coming up, so I really needed to practice making a cake from scratch. Since I love chocolate more than anything, and Alex is not that big of a fan, I figured that a super duper chocolate cake would be the best idea for his birthday cake! [Sarcasm]  

Since I didn’t want to keep it boring, I used Bahlsen’s Waffeletten to decorate the top. These chocolate-dipped waffle bites come in milk chocolate or dark chocolate, so you have your pick of which type of chocolate to add to your already-way-too-chocolately cake. All this, so you can serve your birthday cake in company that doesn’t necessarily follow a low-FODMAP or gluten free diet. It’s a win-win! Let’s get into it, shall we?

Recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake with Bahlsen Waffeletten

For this recipe, you’ll need dark chocolate in the highest quality you can get.  Grab a stick of butter, sugar, salt, four eggs and cocoa powder. That’s it. You know what Life and Thymez is all about by now, right? Recipes that are easy to follow and don’t have a million ingredients, most of which aren’t even available at your local store.

Start by preheating the oven to 350F/190C. Grab a cake pan (I used 9-inch round) and grease it with some cooking spray. Set aside. Get your electric mixer and have it ready.

Again, make sure the heat is on very low.  IMG_2992  Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix your eggs, sugar and salt. With your mixer, whisk until everything is combined and looking foamy.

My first thought, was to use the Waffeletten to round the cake, then tie it with a bow. I only had two boxes though, and this accomplishing this would require three.
