Sugarless, Flourless Sea Salt Chocolate Cake

Who wants chocolate?

Do I even need to ask?

It’s the Sunday before Valentine’s Day! Let yourself ~ and your loved ones ~ have a little treat.

Made with stevia in place of sugar, this cake is extremely low in sugars (it is not, however, low in calories or fat! Just a warning ;-))

This intense flavor can also be gussied up with additions of your choice: try orange zest, almond extract, or flavored stevia.

The sea salt adds and unexpected twist that, oooooohhhh, makes my taste buds so, so happy.

Sugarless, Flourless Sea Salt Chocolate Cake

BEWARE: this cake is not for the faint of heart!

It is intense, dark, and very rich.

I hear a joke in there about how I like my men… 😉

But it is quite delicious. If you think you’re ready for it, carry on! Only you know your true strength!

Sugarless, Flourless Sea Salt Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 4 bars of 100% unsweetened baking chocolate (I used Ghiradelli), broken into pieces
  • 8 tsp stevia
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 5 eggs, separated

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Grease an 8″ round cake pan and dust with cocoa powder.
  3. Using a double boiler, melt together the chocolate and butter until smooth. Stir in the salt and 6 Tbsp of the stevia, then remove from heat.
  4. Whisk the egg yolks in a separate bowl.
  5. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Stir in the remaining 2 Tbsp of stevia until it is fully incorporated into the egg whites.
  6. Gently stir the egg yolks into the chocolate-butter mixture. Fold in the egg white-stevia mixture until completely incorporated.
  7. Add the mix to your prepared pan.
  8. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
  9. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack cool completely. Enjoy!

Do you like your chocolate dark, rich, and intense; soft and milky; or super-sweet and white?

Have you ever made a flourless cake?

  1. I just adore anything chocolate, especially chocolate cake. It is by far my favorite dessert. I have never made a flourless cake and also I have never used stevia before. I may have to give this one a try. My daughter would love it as well as she loves chocolate paired with sea salt.

  2. I am getting ready to open a bed and breakfast on a very historic property in Virginia. (it’s where James Madison was born) One of the events we are going to offer is an Afternoon Tea. So I am so glad I came across your blog! Thanks for the great post!

  3. Thank you! One more question… How many ounces of chocolate? The bars come in many sizes? Thank you. I plan to bake this tomorrow 🙂

      1. Wanted to make this for my sister who has cancer. What a disaster. As soon as I added the egg yolk the whole mixture coagulated, could hardly fold in egg whites. Not sure if the bars I used were the right size because there is no exact size listed.

  4. Hi, Andrea. Thank you for this awesome recipe. Did you really use 8 tablespoons of liquid stevia for this? I am not an experienced cook, but it seems like a lot. Was it very sweet? I like fairly bitter chocolate. This stevia conversion chart says 1 cup of sugar = 1 teaspoon of stevia liquid or powder:

    So according to that chart, 8 tablespoons of stevia = 24 cups of sugar. Did you mean 8 teaspoons of stevia? Even that seems like pretty much, but again I am not an experienced baker, so what do I know.
