Three Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake

I’ve made a two ingredient flourless Nutella cake and a three ingredient flourless peanut butter cake. So this past weekend I decided to try a three ingredient flourless chocolate cake.

The cake was very rich and dense, similar to other flourless chocolate cakes I’ve eaten. And so easy to make with just three ingredients.

As a personal preference, I do wish there was a slightly spongier and less dense texture like the flourless Nutella cake. I may try to play with the proportion of ingredients next time I make this to create a lighter texture. But it’s still great as is. And you may prefer this denser texture.

Three Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6

This cake is very rich and dense plus it's so easy to make with just three ingredients.


  • 7 oz semisweet or milk chocolate chips don't use bittersweet as the cake won't be sweet enough
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and then line a 6-7 inch spring foam pan with parchment paper. (make sure to grease first and then line with paper because the cake will still stick if pan is only greased.) 

  2. Place chocolate chips and butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals until completely melted. Make sure to stir in between each of the 30 second intervals until smooth. Mine was done at about 1 min 30 seconds.
  3. Beat eggs at high speed in stand mixer for about 7 minutes until almost triple in volume.

  4. Add 1/3 of egg mixture into melted chocolate and stir in clockwise motion until no egg streaks remain. Repeat with another 1/3 of egg mixture and then again with final third.

  5. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for about 22-25 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean.

  1. This chocolate cake looks really rich and fudgy, I think I’d still like it. I did bake a flourless cake earlier this year, it was much fluffier but not quite as easy as this recipe. The recipe required separating the eggs and beating the whites to make a meringue with sugar and then folded into the rest of the batter.

  2. I love your recipe, you are mad about Nutella righ? I guess you buy tons per week! I like it too… But I can’t eat it very often because of my weight… This cake will be my next preparation… Thanks for sharing.

  3. It does look moist and yummy, and it certainly sounds simple enough, must try!

  4. I just made this cake omg it was amazzing! Thanks for sharing

  5. Hi there! I just came to this recipe from your 2-ingredient nutella cake, ’cause I was looking for a substitute for nutella.
    And I’m just wondering if I can replace butter with anything? I’ve got a dairy allergy, so a substitute would be great =) Dairy-free/vegan butter is kinda hard to find where I am =/
