Units Scale


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line an 8-inch springform pan.
  2. Set up a double boiler by placing a heatproof bowl on top of a saucepan filled with about 1 inch of water. Make sure that the bowl is not touching the water and is suspended above the water line by the rim of the pan.
  3. Add the butter and the chocolate to the bowl and stir until melted and smooth.
  4. Add the sweetener and espresso powder and stir until mostly dissolved.
  5. Remove the bowl from the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  6. To the bowl, add the eggs, cocoa powder and vanilla extract, and using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until smooth.
  7. Pour the batter in the prepared springform pan and bake for 45 minutes, until cooked through, but still has a slightly fudgy center. Cool on a rack before serving.

  • Greasing and lining the springform pan will make sure that your cake does not stick, and will make for easy clean up. 
  • The espresso powder adds a delightful coffee flavor, but is not imperative to the success of the recipe and can be omitted. 
  • If you are looking to make this cake dairy free, simply substitute butter flavored coconut oil in place of the butter. 
  • If you only have granular sweetener on hand, you can put it in a spice grinder and pulse it until it has reached a powdered consistency.
