Recipe: Two ingredient chocolate cake

Yep, you read that right, this cake has only two ingredients. Eggs, and chocolate. And it actually works surprisingly well. Perfect if you’ve got a craving for cake or have last minute dinner guests and nothing to make for dessert. It’s also gluten free.


  • 200g milk chocolate (I used dark chocolate the first time I made this and it tasted very bitter, so I’d recommend using a milk chocolate)
  • 4 eggs (separated)


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C and line a cake tin with grease proof paper.
  2. Separate your eggs into yolks and white. Set the yolks to one side and whisk the egg whites into peaks.
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, heating it in 30 second intervals to ensure it doesn’t burn. The add the yolks to the chocolate stiring constantly.
  4. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites until it is all incorporated and no white is left.
  5. Add the mixture to the cake tin and cook in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes. The top should have risen and be starting to crack slightly.
  6. Leave to cool in the tin, and then serve with icing sugar on top.
