#GlutenFree Chocolate Almond Cloudless Cake for #SundaySupper

#Glutenfree Chocolate Almond Cloudless Cake

The other day when I was thinking about what I could make for Sunday Supper Valentine’s Day in a way that only #SundaySupper could. I knew I wanted to make a #Gluten Free Dessert that everyone would want so after a long week in the desert.  I came up with this updated #Glutenfree Chocolate Almond Cloudless Cake. Which I'm sure you will enjoy. 

Around this house, Valentine’s Day is a family affair.  We celebrate as a family, and we usually take turns on who's in charge of the meal; this year it's my Hubby's turn. He will have to make the Dinner & Dessert plus wait on me and my daughter. In addition to we do not believe in buying cards it's all about the home made gift and present. It's the day that comes from your heart so that's how we celebrate. No store bought gifts are allowed here.
Now on to the recipe
Serves 12 Individual ramekins or one large that can be sliced.
Flour less Chocolate Cake Ingredients:
8 Eggs separated in two separate bowls
1/3 cup sugar
½ cup butter
1 2/3 cups of Chocolate Chips Semi Sweet
1 1/2 teaspoons Almond extract
Gluten Free Cooking Spray
Garnish with Whipped cream Chocolate Syrup or Sliced Strawberries (Optional)

Equipment needed
12 small ramekins or 1 large Ramekin 
1 large lined cookie Sheet
Either Parchment Paper or a Silpat for Cookie Sheet
A mixer with a whisk

Separate Eggs in two large bowls

Beat Eggs about 3 minutes until stiff peaks form and set aside.

Next add Sugar to yolks and Almond Extract and beat about 3 minutes until a ribbon is formed and color will be like margarine.

Next take your Chocolate Chips and Butter and melt in 30 second intervals until totally melted stirring every 30 seconds. 

Tip of the day every Microwave oven cooks differently it could take 3 or 4 or maybe even 5 30 second intervals it all depends but don't forget to stir.

 Next add melted chocolate to eggs a little bit at a time so it gets tempered.

Next take half of the Egg whites and fold into Chocolate mixture.

Folding in the other half too.

Until it looks like this.

Now you have to decide do you want individual ramekins that can be garnished like this. 

Next spray ramekin large or small then pour into container.

Next bake in convection oven at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 min for small or 28 to 30 min for large.

Remember every oven is different so you probably want to watch through window. Do not open oven can make dessert fall!

Let cool before you slice if making a large one, if you are making a small one just eat right out of ramekin and cool for at least 15 min.
