Flourless Chocolate Cakes

Harry is celebrating his birthday at Kindy today, as his actual birthday falls during the school holidays. Instead of a traditional birthday cake, I decided to bake some individual Flourless Chocolate Cakes. I figured small cakes would be easier for the teacher to serve out to 22 little munchkins - no cutting, no washing up.

200g dark cooking chocolate, broken into pieces
180g butter, chopped
270g (1 1/4 cups) caster sugar
120g (1 cup) cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
5 eggs
120g (3/4 cup) almond meal

  1. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees. 
  2. Place the chocolate into the TM bowl and grate for 5 seconds/speed 8. Set aside.
  3. Place the butter, caster sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and eggs into the TM bowl and mix for 20 seconds/speed 7.
  4. Add the grated chocolate and almond meal and mix for 30 seconds/speed 6.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a 12-hole muffin tin lined with paper patty cases and bake for 30 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool in the tin.
  6. Dust with icing sugar and serve with thick cream and fresh berries.

Makes 12
