Flourless Chocolate cake with Chocolate Ganache Icing -- Don't let the fancy title fool you! This cake and icing is SO easy to make in 30 minutes! If you are a chocolate lover, you've got to try this :)


4 (1-ounce) squares semi-sweet baking chocolate

½ cup real butter

¾ cup sugar

½ cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 eggs, beaten

For the icing:

8-ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

½ cup half-n-half

In a large sauce pan, melt chocolate and butter together over low heat, stirring often.  Add the remaining ingredients except the eggs, stirring well.  When the mixture has a creamy consistency, remove pan from heat.  Place a ladle full of the warm chocolate mixture into the eggs, and then add the eggs and small amount of chocolate mixture to the rest of the mixture.  (This will keep you from having scrambled eggs).  Wisk until very smooth and pour into a greased 8” cake pan.  Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.  While the cake is baking, melt the chocolate chips and half-n-half in a small sauce pan over low heat.  Stir often with a whisk until it’s glossy.  Making the icing only takes about 5 minutes.  Remove cooked cake carefully from the pan and onto a plate.  Pour all of the icing over the top of cake and let it run down the sides.  This cake and icing is amazing!  Enjoy J
