Valentines Flourless Chocolate Baileys Irish Cream Cake

Flourless Chocolate Baileys Cake

The perfect valentines cake.

Chocolate, Baileys and the best part -you can make this cake the day before. Leaving one less thing to do and mess to clean up!

Ingredients:

7oz bittersweet chocolate chopped

7oz unsalted butter chopped

4 eggs

2 tbsp. Baileys or rum

1c. coconut sugar (you can also use granulated sugar)

1c. almond flour

1/4 tsp salt

cocoa powder for dusting (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease the bottom and sides of an 8 inch springform pan. Wrap the inside and bottom with parchment paper to prevent leaking.

Place chocolate and butter in a measuring cup, heat in microwave until melted. Stir occasionally. You can also use a sauce pan filled with water with a heat proof bowl fitted onto to melt the chocolate on the stove.

In a mixing bowl whip egg whites and 1/2 c. sugar until it reaches stiff peaks. While egg whites are mixing in a separate large bowl -place egg yolks and 1/2c. sugar.  Whisk by hand until pale and thick. Stir in chocolate mixture, baileys, almonds and salt. Fold in whipped egg whites and pour into springform pan. Bake 20-30 minutes. Just until set. It will “wobble” a little bit when jiggled. Cool on a wire rack for an hour and then transfer to refrigerator and chill at least 4 hours. It taste even better the day after.
