Flourless chocolate coffee cake

I love it when a cake gives double the pleasure and half the calories. This chocolate coffee cake lets us enjoy its flavours without us having to think about tomorrow’s workout.The slices are weightless on our plate, no flour, just crumbling golden hazelnut.


200 g dark chocolate

150 g butter

1 tablespoon coffee

6 eggs

2/3 sugar

1 1/2 cups hazelnut meat

zest of 1 orange
For serving:

cocoa powder


1/2 cup hazelnut meat

whipped cream

Melt the dark chocolate with the butter and sugar over boiling water then put aside and cool down.

Preheat the oven to 180°C, grease a round cake pan.

Add the egg yolks one by one to the chocolate mixture, mix quickly and continually then combine with the hazelnut and orange zest. Beat the egg whites then gently add to the batter.

Pour into the cake pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.

Open the oven door and let the cake cool down inside.

Spread some warm marmalade to the side and decorate with the hazelnut meat. Sift cocoa-powder onto the top and serve with whipped cream.

Cooking time: 70 minutes

Tip: Fill up your cake with some cream cheese icing mixed with whiskey
