Two Ingredient Chocolate Cake Recipe

As you might imagine, a two ingredient dessert is super easy to make. I tested this recipe many times and tried two different methods for making this chocolate cake.

First Method:

Two Ingredient Chocolate Cake Made With The Egg Yolk & Egg White Separated

First, separate the egg yolk from the egg white and whip the egg white for about 2 minutes until it becomes frothy.

In a separate bowl, whisk together melted chocolate and the egg yolk.

Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the egg yolk mixture.

Pour the cake batter into a greased 8-ounce ramekin and bake in a heated 350° oven (177° C) for 20 minutes.

Second Method:

Two Ingredient Chocolate Cake Made with The Egg Yolk & White Together

The second method I tested was to simply whisk an egg (the yolk and the white together) for about a minute until it was frothy.

Then, whisk in the melted chocolate and pour the batter into a greased ramekin. Bake in a 350º F (177°C) oven for 20 minutes.

This method resulted in a cake that was more fluffy and cakey.

Both ways delivered a decadent chocolate dessert.

    Thank you for the chocolate cake recipe. My daughter is coming over tonight to celebrate her birthday with me. This is perfect because I do not want to have extra cake leftover when she leaves (because I will eat it 🙁 ) This is delicious too. Thank you for all your recipes. I get you in my email.
