A gluten free chocolate cake with a sweet bite!

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberries


  • 1 pound dark Dutch chocolate
  • 11 Tablespoons butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon spearmint
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate syrup


Preheat oven 375 degrees.

Create a double boiler with water boiling in the main pot, and a metal dish on top. 

Once hot, add chocolate and butter. Blend until mixture is melted and smooth like chocolate syrup. Take the chocolate mixture and pour into a mixing bowl. Add five eggs to mixing bowl. Mix for approximately one minute.

In a lightly greased 9 inch baking pan, add chocolate and egg mixture. Bake at 375 for 15-17 minutes. Use a toothpick in middle to check if it's been baked through. Let cool to room temperature.

In a bowl add strawberries and fresh spearmint. Add enough balsamic vinegar to just cover strawberries. Mix in honey.



After chocolate cake has cooled, cut into eight slices. Add a stripe of chocolate syrup to plate. Add chocolate cake slice to plate. Add strawberry mixture to plate. Serve and enjoy!

Approximately 8 servings
