The Sweetest Summer

Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

We have been spending all of our free time lately in our backyard.  Whether we’re tending to it or enjoying it, we are soaking up every second we can back here. It’s easily our favorite space and we can’t get enough.

One of our favorite things to do, especially when the sun starts to set and the heat gives up a bit, is to fire up our smoker and whip up dinner! On top of meals, lately we’ve been trying our hand at desserts.

A quick note about our grill:

We have a Traeger Eastwood 22 Series that both grills and smokes! We’ve had it about 3 months now and easily use our it 2-3 times a week – whether we’re smoking salmon for dinner, cooking homemade pizzas, or grilling veggies, it has become the most used cooking tool in our home. It’s simple to use, there’s no flame, and you control the temperature electronically. Ryan usually does the grilling, but even I feel great about doing it now. The Traeger practically does all of the work for you and we LOVE how versatile it is.

Back to desserts!

Last month we grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream (dairy free for me!) and they turned out fantastic. So this month we thought we’d try another one of Traeger’s recipes, the flourless chocolate cake…Spoiler alert… it was amazing!! One of my favorite things about Traeger is the recipe book they have online. I can’t get over all of the recipes and how they have it broken down for you by every category imaginable.  When I was looking for recipes I knew I wanted to find ones that went well with our Cherry Pellets.  After a little research I found this Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sauce, and thought YES & YES.

The recipe was super easy to make and I even substituted the butter for vegan butter to make the whole thing dairy free. The cake came out perfectly and had delicious hints of smoked cherry.

I’ve loved experimenting with the Traeger and trying new recipes, especially desserts. The smoked meats and are no-brainers and always delicious, but smoking desserts… now that is fun!

Recipe from Traeger.com

Ingredients:

NONSTICK COOKING SPRAY

3 TBSP COCOA POWDER (FOR DUSTING THE PAN)

12 OZ SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE, SUCH AS GUITTARD, COARSELY CHOPPED OR IN SMALL PIECES

12 TBSP (1 1/2 STICKS) UNSALTED BUTTER

1/2 TSP SALT

1 TSP VANILLA EXTRACT

6 EGGS, ROOM TEMPERATURE

1 1/2 CUPS PLUS 2 TBSP GRANULATED CANE SUGAR

2 CUPS FRESH RASPBERRIES OR FROZEN RASPBERRIES, DEFROSTED

1 TSP FRESH LEMON JUICE

Directions:

When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
 
Spray 8 small ramekins or a 9” springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Dust with cocoa powder. 
 
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the chocolate and salt and whisk until melted. Remove immediately from the heat and stir in the vanilla. 
 
Combine the eggs and 1-1/2 cups of  sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. Alternatively, use a hand mixer. 
 
Fold the chocolate into the egg mixture and stir until combined.
 
Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan or ramekins (if baking later, cover and refrigerate). 
 
Place the pan on the grill grate and bake, about 35-40 minutes, or until the top of the cake looks crispy, yet the center is still slightly sticky when a toothpick is inserted in the center.   
 
For the Raspberry Sauce: Place the raspberries, remaining 2 Tbsp of sugar, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Blend for 30 seconds, or until a puree is formed. Strain the sauce to remove the seeds. Taste, adding more lemon juice or sugar if desired.  
 
Place each cake on a small plate and drizzle with the raspberry sauce. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
 
*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.

    That cake sounds delicious!!! I need to try it. Hopefully I can bake in a regular oven! A friend of mine recently posted a strawberry smore. Looked good but was missing chocolate. My solution? Use the new marshmallows that have the chocolate in the center! Problem solved! (I need my chocolate!!!). Love your dress! Perfect for those hot summer days! ­čÖé
