SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: a 10-inch (26 centimeter) springform pan
The trick to a flourless cake is choosing what you'll use to provide the structure that flour supplies in a standard cake. The cocoa powder does the trick in this cake. This, along with the eggs, makes the cake dense and rich.
The secret of this cake (which there is no need to tell your guests) is that it is also one of the easiest of all cakes to put together. Cake may be made up to three days ahead and kept in an airtight container at room temperature.
My notes: This cake can also be made as cupcakes. You may want to butter the inside of the cupcake paper through, as it will stick to it.
I found this on America's Test Kitchen, however I went back to look for it and couldn't find it (there is a floorless cake recipe there, but it's not the same one).
When you eat this cake, you will think you have died and gone to heaven. Be careful not to think that it is underdone because it is not. It is supposed to be as moist as it turns out. My niece made this recipe and she brought the whole cake to my house to split it with me. She was upset with how "she thought" it turned out. I gave her a fork. We each tasted it and literally had to shut our eyes at the great taste. Your think you are almost eating a baked pudding. She mixed peanut butter with chocolate frosting and iced it. It was awesome. I'm going to get a piece out of my fridge now. Oh, it is best at room temperature. If you eat it cold, it seems like you are eating fudge which is not so bad either. Great great great!!!
