Katie's Flourless Chocolate Cake

Katie's back in the kitchen, creating more tried & true xylitol recipes for you! Here's a recipe for a moist & delicious flourless chocolate cake, sweetened with birch xylitol granules.


o    2 sticks (1 cup) butter
o    12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
o    6 large eggs
o    1 cup Dr. John's Xylitol Sweetener
o    1 Tbsp vanilla extract
o    2 Tbsp coffee liqueur (or liqueur of choice)


1.      Preheat oven to 350.

2.      For individual cakes, spray 6 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. For a larger cake, line the bottom of a spring form pan with a parchment round, wrap the outside of the pan with a triple layer of foil to protect from leaks in the water bath, then lightly spray the bottom and sides of the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

3.      Melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave in a large bowl, on 30-second intervals until melted.

4.      Whisk in the eggs and xylitol until well combined.

5.      Stir in the vanilla and liqueur until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

6.      Place the spring form pan in a larger pan (like a 13x9) and fill the larger pan with enough hot water to come up level with the batter.

7.      Bake 30-40 minutes, until center of cake is firm to the touch, then remove from the oven. If not serving warm, allow to cool completely in the water bath.

TIP: You can substitute carob chips for chocolate chips at a 1:1 ratio. Learn more about carob.

  1. I made this cake for Thanksgiving paper writing service party and it was a huge hit. I let it cool for an hour before I removed it from the pan. I made it again this week (for a party) and let it cool for 10 minutes like the recipe states, and it fell apart when I removed it from the pan. I took the pieces, made a layer of them in a big glass bowl, put on a layer of sweetened whipped cream flavored with kahlua, repeated the layers and topped the whole thing with shaved chocolate. Everyone loved it!

  2. Thanks for sharing.I found a lot of interesting information here. A really good post, very thankful and hopeful that you will write many more posts like this one.
