for chocolate and espresso junkies ;P (without flour)

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 160ºC(=320°F). Grease an 6.5- or a 7-inch round cake pan.

  • Step 2

    Then break the dark chocolate into pieces and melt it together with the butter in a mixing bowl. Let it cool down a little bit.

  • Step 3

    Combine the espresso powder, salt and sugar in a second bowl. Then add the mix carefully to the chocolate-butter-mix under stiring.

  • Step 4

    Put the eggs into another bowl and cream quickly with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the almonds. Then combine the egg-almond-mix and the chocolate-mix under stiring.

  • Step 5

    Put the dough into the greased cake pan and bake the cake for 20 minutes. Then cover the cake with aluminum foil and bake the cake for further 30-40 minutes.
    (Don’t worry, the cake remains REALLY FUDGY! That’s alright.)

  • Step 6

    Let the cake cool down until you can get it out of the pan.
    Put the cake on a plate into the fridge until it’s totally cooled down.

    P.S. If you want to decorate the cake a little bit, you can melt some chocolate and cover the cake. Also colorful sprinkles or some strawberry slices would look good on it, I think.

    Ready! ;)

hi guys!
long time i came by, i see. sorry, had a lot to do.
>> umm, instant espresso. it's NOT the espresso powder for espresso machines that's made of ground espresso beans. it's.. yeah, instant. you give it into a cup and mix it with hot water. then you drink it. no machine needed.

Awesome recipe! I can't wait to try it!

One question: By 'Instant Espresso Powder', do you mean just the regular instant coffee, like Nescafe stuff? Or actual ground espresso beans?
