Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1/2 hershey's special dark cocoa powder
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper to lay flat in your 8 inch round pan. Spray butter on the sides of your pan and set aside.
Use a glass bowl and place over a pot filled with about two inches of water. Bring water to a boil. This is how you create double boiler if you were wondering what I was talking about or what a double boiler actually is. Place your chocolate chips and butter inside of the glass bowl and continue to stir until melted. Once melted transfer to a mixing bowl.
Stir in your sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Then add your cocoa powder and mix until smooth.
Pour your batter into your pan. Place in the oven for 22-25 minutes.
Once baked, slide a knife along the edges of your cake and flip over onto a plate or cake stand. Dust with powdered sugar.
Poof! The best and most delicious cake of your life.
