Flourless Fudge Cake with Raspberry Whipped Cream  

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough

Hear ye, hear ye! Gather ‘round to heareth a tale of The Best Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake That Ever Was.

I know a lot of GF desserts can be super boring, super weird-looking or super gross, but this cake? This fudgy, flourless wonder? It’s only super rich, super decadent and super tasty. And with a topping of delicious homemade raspberry whipped cream, there’s no excuse not to make this cake for your friends and family—gluten and gluten-free eaters alike.

Let the cake making begin!


Chopped up chocolate

First, prepare your ingredients. It’s best to use high-quality chocolate for this recipe, like Guittard or Ghirardelli, as the flavor of the chocolate really stands out in the final product. It’s worth the extra Benjamins!


Whipped up chocolate mixture

Whip up the chocolate mixture – which includes chocolate (duh), instant espresso, bourbon and vanilla. AKA pretty much all that is good and tasty in this world.


Folding in egg mixture

Once you’ve made the egg mixture, stir some of it into the chocolate, then fold in the rest. Add some whipped topping, too, for EXTRA DELICIOUSNESS.


Batter in a greased and cocoa powdered springform pan

Pour the batter into a greased and cocoa powdered springform pan, then bake it up until it’s just set (the center will continue to bake as it cools).


Baked cake

Will you just Look. At. That? That’s pure magic, right there.

Now comes the hardest part: You’ve got to cover the cooled cake and let it set in the fridge overnight. Oh, the agony!


Making the raspberry whipped cream

The next day, whip up some raspberry whipped cream with raspberry puree, sugar and heavy whipping cream. It’s sweet and tart and creamy and whippy and all sorts of tasty.


Flourless Fudge Cake with Raspberry Whipped Cream, ready to eat

FINALLY, we can dig in!

Flourless Fudge Cake with Raspberry Whipped Cream


cup water
cup Dutch process cocoa powder, plus more for coating pan
teaspoon instant espresso grounds
ounces high-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
ounce high-quality unsweetened chocolate, chopped
tablespoon bourbon whiskey
teaspoon vanilla
large eggs
large egg whites
cup granulated sugar
1 1/2
cups whipped topping
cup Cascadian Farm frozen raspberries
cup granulated sugar
1 1/2
cups cold heavy whipping cream
raspberries for garnish (optional)


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2 Pour water into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Add cocoa and instant espresso; stir until smooth. Remove pan from heat and add both types of chocolate, stirring until smooth. Add bourbon and vanilla and stir to combine. Pour mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
  • 3 In a medium saucepan, whisk together eggs, egg whites, sugar and salt; place over a large saucepan filled with 2 inches simmering water (do not let medium saucepan touch the water). Whisk egg mixture constantly over double boiler until slightly warm (about 115 degrees F). Remove saucepan from heat and pour egg mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • 4 Beat egg mixture on high until soft peaks just begin to form, about 7 minutes. Stir a third of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture. Carefully fold in remaining egg mixture, then fold in whipped topping.
  • 5 Coat an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray and cocoa powder. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until just set. Remove from oven and cool completely on a cooling rack. Cover cooled cake with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 8 hours (or overnight).
  • 6 Make the whipped cream: In a blender or food processor, blend frozen raspberries until a puree forms. Pour raspberries into a bowl and stir in sugar. Set aside.
  • 7 Pour heavy whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer; whip on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in raspberry mixture.
  • 8 Remove cake from springform pan and place on a serving dish. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.
