2-Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake

Recipe by Dr. Joanne Mumola Williams creator of Health Begins in the Kitchen:


Although I did not invent

this recipe, I just had to pass it along to you in time for Valentine’s

Day. Tis delicious

and simple recipe only uses 2 ingre-

dients (4 if you choose to dust it with powdered sugar and garnish it with fresh berries.) Make it with vegan dark choco- late for a gluten and dairy free dessert.

Requirements 6-inch spring form pan

Ingredients 4 large eggs, room temperature 9 ounces chocolate chips Powdered sugar (optional) Raspberries to garnish (optional)

Directions Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 6-inch spring form pan. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and cook, in 30-second increments, until the chocolate melts. Tis can take 1 minute or slightly longer. Separate the eggs. Place the whites in a large, clean, glass bowl. Whip until soſt peaks form. Tis can take a while so be patient. Let the chocolate cool a bit

and then, one by one, whip each yolk into the chocolate until well combined. Gently fold 1/3 of

the whipped egg

whites into the chocolate/egg yolk mixture. Ten repeat with the next 1/3 of the egg whites. And finally, with the last 1/3 of the egg whites.

Pour the batter into the greased Dada’s Deli Restaurant

6-inch spring form pan and bake for 30 minutes. Cool on a cake rack for 15 minutes or so. Ten, release. You can dress this up with powdered sugar, berries, or a scoop of non- dairy ice cream. Happy Valentines Day!

Maryland designated the Smith Island Cake (A layer cake with 8-12 layers) as Maryland’s Official State Dessert in 2008.

More than 29% of U.S. school districts have banned bake sales due to anti-obesity regulations.

The saying “You can’t have you cake and eat it” (origi- nally “eat your cake and have it”) is first seen in print in 1562 in John Heywood’s ‘Proverbs and Epigrams.’

A forerunner of modern newspapers was the Notizie scritte (written notices) published monthly in Venice from 1556.

The first reference to “News Papers” in English was in 1667.

Under a 1789 Act of George III, it was illegal “for any hawker of any newspaper” to “let out any newspaper for hire to any person or persons”.

A Sonoma County Tradition! “Turkey always and turkey all ways!”
