Today’s recipe is a definite indulgence.  But it is soooooooooooo delicious.  Rich, dark, gooey…and totally flourless!

A little over a week ago, I was craving some really rich chocolate dessert.  I searched through various recipes and just couldn’t find anything I really wanted to make.  I decided to head into the kitchen and start mixing things together, see what I came up with.  This is it.




1 c. hot water (a little extra; needs to be 1 c. after boiling)

8 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate

1.5 c. Sucanat

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. sea salt

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 eggs

4 tbsp. butter



Place hot water in a pan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and re-measure (should still be 1 cup; add a little extra if necessary).  Add chocolate and stir until melted.  Mix in sucanat, salt, eggs, vanilla, and butter.  Add baking soda.  Stir until smooth.  Pour into a 9 x 13 buttered pan.  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 min.



2 tbsp. butter

¼ c. cocoa powder

1 c. powdered sugar (more for thicker frosting)

2 tbsp. water

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Mix together, drizzle over top of slightly cooled cake.  Alternately, stir in extra powdered sugar and spread over the top (may need to double all ingredients, and more than double powdered sugar, to have enough frosting to do it this way).

  1. Wow! This recipe was calling my name! Anything chocolate- I’m there!

    So what was the texture like for the cake? And do you have a picture?


  2. This recipe sounds yummy! My results with it were, unfortunately, a disaster. I checked the ingredients and instructions carefully to make sure I hadn't left anything out, but I had followed it all to a "t".


  3. Love chocolate cake!

    We are in our final week of Get Grillin' – Dessert is the theme and we would love if you submitted up to any 3 recipes (they don't have to be grilled) to our link up. This one would be perfect! This week we have a Rouxbe Cooking School giveaway.
