Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter plus 1 tablespoon for buttering the pan
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of kosher or coarse sea salt
  • Confectioners' sugar optional
  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream optional
  • Berries optional

To Prepare

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
  • Bring about 2-inches of water to a simmer in the bottom half of a double boiler or in a medium saucepan. Place the top half of the double boiler, or a metal bowl or heatproof pan if not using a double boiler, over the simmering water and melt together the chocolate and the 1/4 cup butter. Set aside to cool.
  • Using a blender, chop the pecans finely. Add the eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt and melted chocolate mixture, blending until smooth. Pour the batter into the buttered springform pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out moist but not wet, about 40 minutes.
  • Once it has cooled a little, run the tip of a knife around the pan and release the cake from the pan. Invert onto a plate, and then again, or serve directly onto plates if left on bottom part of springform pan. If desired, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve with whipped cream and berries.

    Is this cake fudgy?

    1. Pati Jinich

      Sep 18

      I would call it “very rich” more than fudgy Sophia 🙂

    I have made this cake twice in the past week, each time for a different group of people to enjoy. Rave reviews from everyone and several recipe requests. This cake probably has the highest amount of eating pleasure from the least amount of baking effort of anything I bake! A real chocolate lover’s cake. I added a little espresso powder to boost the chocolate impact and used Mexican vanilla.

    I am very excited to make this dessert for my family for our Easter meal. I’ve always looked for a special
    flourless cake recipe and finally found one as I watched your program this last Saturday. It is one of my
    very favorite cooking shows because of your passion for the food, the people, your own family and sharing
    the tips and hints with all of us who are at different levels of cooking and baking. I learn so much and
    feel less fearful of making mistakes because of you!
    Thank you, phylli this is my nickname and I love it cause my friends gave it to me.
    Blessings to you and your family.

    I made this wonderful cake for my niece who has an allergy to wheat and thought there were no birthday cakes ever again for her. It is delicious! She loved it plain but said the next day she topped it with vanilla ice cream and it was next level.
    Thank you for the fabulous option!

    I confirm that this cake is everything it promises to be. I added chopped rum soaked prunes. I’m about to make another with chopped Luxardo cherries for a GF black forest riff for a GF friend. It’s just the best thing. Thank you for sharing it with us!

    Hi Pati,

    I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller loaf pan. I also used 100% dark Ghiradelli since we like darker chocolates. It came out so tasty! I’m not a baker so I’m always nervous when trying a new baking recipe. I’m much more confident with making adjustments when cooking. Thank you for this tasty and easy recipe.

    We love your show! You have such a warm personality and friendly teaching style. When you’re on location interacting with locals, your friendliness really shines through. It’s been fun seeing your kids grow over the years.

    Every time I bring this to a dinner party, the hostess insists on me making from then on. I cut the sugar to 3/4 Cup and have added the zest of an orange.

    Can I melt the chocolate in the microwave? Also do you recommend 70% or above civao? Thnx

    1. Pati Jinich

      Apr 06

      Yes Chi, I guess you can use the microwave, just be careful because I know the chocolate can burn easily. 70% is good 😉

    Could I make this keto by adding Steve and leaving out the confectioner’s sugar?

    1. Pati Jinich

      Oct 04

      You can for sure adapt my recipes to meet your nutritional needs, Barbara-Anne. I recommend you follow the Keto recommendations.

    I made this cake recently and now it is my new favorite chocolate cake! Great flavor and texture with minimal effort. I particular liked your suggestion to serve it with fresh fruit.

    Can this cake also be made in a food processor without changing the texture? (My blender is broken!)

    1. Pati Jinich

      Aug 20

      I’m so happy that it is your new favorite cake, Kerry! You can use a food processor, no problem.

  28. Cathy Dellinger

    Jul 30

    Is it possible to make this a day or two ahead? I’m having a large party here, need to make two and would like to do as little as possible the day of other than setting up. Thanks!!

    1. Pati Jinich

      Aug 09

      You can, Cathy! I store this cake outside of the refrigerator, and it keeps covered for a week in great shape. It also refrigerates and freezes well, just bring it up to room temp to serve.

    My sister in law is diabetic , suggestions for sugar free version

    1. Pati Jinich

      Jul 10

      I haven’t made a sugar-free version, but some other people in the comments have used sugar substitutes like Splenda with success. Good luck, Ed!

  30. Erik W

    Jun 27

    Saw you make this on your show. I could swear you used a leavener like baking powder. Seems like without a leavener it would turn out like a souffle.

    1. Pati Jinich

      Jul 01

      No baking powder is needed in this cake…it will be nice and gooey.

    Can this cake be made from roasted and salted pistachios? They are my favorite nut. Your almond leche cake was such a hit, i’d Like to try this one too. Thanks!

    1. Pati Jinich

      Jun 03

      Sure! You can use pistachios, but make sure to use unsalted pistachios. Enjoy, Yespat!

    Hi Pati,
    Love this cake and have been making it for years. I have to substitute butter (unfortunately) and use coconut oil. Would you recommend another substitution? Also, I reduce the sugar by 1/2, and wonder if that alters the structure of the cake, because it comes out rather short. Any ideas on that? It’s still delicious!!

    1. Pati Jinich

      May 24

      Not sure… but please give it a try and let me know!

      Yes you can use almonds…or you can also give this recipe a try Karina: https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/almond-and-chocolate-leche-cake/ And I’ve never tried it with white chocolate…but give it a try! I hope your husband has a great birthday.

    My 14 yo son and I watch your program and had to try this recipe. It was so easy to create and a breeze to clean up too. We baked and sculpted a Chocolate Ribbon Cake from Julia Child and that cake took me 11hours. Albeit was delicious the ease of this recipe has won me over. I will make it for brunch this weekend!

    1. Pati

      Oh I hope you and your son had fun in the kitchen!

    Hi Pati, love your show. I am married to a Mexican but I am not. Mexican food has always been my favorite food. When I was a little girl I would always choose tacos for my birthday dinner. My mom was an excellent southern cook & would kind of cringe when I requested them. She was a good sport though & would fry corn tortillas until I got my fill. I usually ate about 6 as I had a very hearty appetite! Plus more for my dad, sister & herself. They were just ground beef tacos but they were delicious! In my 40 years of marriage I have made many different Mexican dishes, including tacos, of course! Your show has inspired me to try even more different types of meals. I really want to make this cake, but was wondering if it has to be baked in a springform pan? Thanks Pati.

    P.S. I love when you cook with your son’s. I have 2 boys & they both are really good cooks. My younger son is a vegetarian & he is very creative in the kitchen.

    1. Pati

      Feb 23

      Thank you for sharing your story, Debbie! It sounds like you have lots of fun in the kitchen. For this cake, you can use another 9-inch pan and wax paper too.

    1. Pati

      Feb 19

      ​You can use whatever you usually use as an egg substitute, Shweta… and let me know how it goes!​

    Feb 14

    I can’t wait to make this one. It always makes me sad when the gluten-free people in the extended family (especially kids) get left out of the holiday dessert table, so this seems like something EVERYONE can share and nobody will feel excluded!

    1. Pati

      Feb 15

      Yes everyone can love this cake 🙂

    Pati, what more can I say other than …Thank you, thank you, thank you and you are such a wonderful person! I just love your show, I watch it on PBS every day! You are my favorite chef and have been such an inspiration to my cooking. I have learned so much about Mexico, the different foods and so many amazing ingredients from watching your show! All i wanted for Christmas were your cookbooks and a comal. Although I didn’t get the books, I finally have my comal, which is obviously so very vital to many of your recipes. Tonight, for new years eve I am baking this gorgeous cake. It is my second desert recipe of yours that I am trying. The first was the almond leche cake, which was absolutely delicious, the best chocolate cake I have ever had by far! This one seems really similar, so I am seeing which one I like best…Oh and my almond cake came out super moist, just like you said, and had the high edges and a sunken middle, which most people don’t realize is normal for these types of cakes, so to make mine just as pretty as the picture i took a super sharp knife and cut off the high edges around the whole thing to make it even with the center, then sprinkled my powdered sugar. Hopefully this one will be as great, wish me luck! Happy New years Path to you and your family!!!

    1. Pati

      Jan 02

      Good luck Jessaleah! And thank you for your lovely comment! I hope you have lots of fun with your new comal.

        Just as i thought, this cake was just as delicious…super moist and so flavorful! Im torn between the almond leche cake and this one, but just as your hubby loves this one, my fiancé loves this one best too! Thank you Pati and of course Nana José too! Made my New Year’s even better.

    Hola Patti – Love the cake! It was easy to make and gluten free as well. A winner in my book.
    We will be making this cake for the Jewish holiday of Passover as there is no leavening in it.

    Hola Pati♡ I can’t wait to make this cake. However I do have a few questions do I have to use a springform pan? Also could wax paper be used? And lastly do you have a recipe for ropa Vieja I’m Cuban and that’s one recipe that my grandmother never shared with me before she passed away. I really enjoy your show cooking is one of my passions thank you for responding God bless Happy Thanksgiving

    1. Pati

      ​Hola! Yes you can use another 9-inch pan and wax paper too. I love Ropa Vieja too!

    Pati,
    Do the pecans have to be toasted first or do you just use them from the bag?
    Thank you

      Straight from the bag :).

    I made this cake this afternoon. Really easy, and REALLY good. I have, however, converted ALL my recipes to metric. All the dry ingredients in one bowl and all the liquid in another. Weighing in grams is much easier and more accurate. I can remember trying to dig all the shortening out of a measuring cup, but never again. For instance, this recipe calls for 1/4 cup butter which translates into 57 grams. 6 ounces of chocolates converts to 70 grams. I put a pyrex glass bowl on the scale, add the chocolate, zero the scale and weigh the butter, put the bowl over simmering water and stir the 2 together. The pecans and sugar are easily measured, but I still weigh the sugar for accuracy. I have a chart of all my ingredients for baking and can whip up a cake or cookies in a flash. I guess that, because I taught the metric system to intermediate school children, and later worked as an industrial chemist, I am more comfortable with that system. They still call it the British system of weights and measures, but they use metric in the U.K. Hmmm, makes one wonder. I seriously suggest you try it, you just might be a convert – and DO try this cake.

    1. Pati

      That’s wonderful that you are so precise Dr. Jim, and I’m glad you enjoy the cake!

    Is it preferable to refrigerate or keep this cake at room temperature one day before serving it?

    Hi Pati: I’m a fan of your show, soy de Cd. Juarez asi que me gusto ver que una Chef Mexicana este poniendo en alto la cocina Mexicana. I have made this cake a few time, it is delicious. I have made slight modifications to it, nothing major. I double up most ingredients and substitute sugar with agave, so yummy! I’ve also used different types of nuts and they are all very nice in the recipe, I’ve added pieces of nuts once the batter is in the baking dish for a little extra touch. Here are the measurements I use:

    1/2 cup unsalted butter plus 2 tablespoon for buttering the pan
    12 ounces bittersweet chocolate
    2 cups pecans
    12 large eggs
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3/4 cup agave
    Pinch of kosher or coarse sea salt

    Hi, made this cake today – bought my first springform pan (yipee!), but they only had a 10 inch, not a 9 inch as called for in recipe, so increased recipe by 1/3 and worked out perfectly! Lovely flavor, not too sweet. thank you for sharing the recipe! It was very much enjoyed 🙂 oxo

    Will this cake freeze well? If so, when it is time to serve it, should I set it out to room temperature or heat it up in the oven?

    1. Pati

      May 19

      Yes! The cake freezes beautifully Katy. When you are ready to east it just bring it to room temperature before eating.

    I just made this cake for my Mom (for Mother’s Day). We doubled the batch and it had to cook longer. Next time I’ll do 1 batch instead. It tasted great. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I really enjoy watching your show on PBS.

      Thank YOU for trying the recipe Dee!

    We are huge fans of the show! Wish it was available on DVD. We have made this several times and it was always delicious, but tried it with cocoa powder last time and it separated while cooking. Is there a successful way to make it with cocoa powder? Thanks so much!

    1. Pati

      Apr 28

      Hi Jake! This cake really works best as it’s written. But you can try Juju’s chocolate cake, that one uses cocoa powder! https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/recipe/jujus_birthday_cake/

      A heart shaped pan…what a sweet idea. I hope your husband loved it Rene.

    Should the eggs be cold or room temp?
    Thanks!

    1. Pati

      Room temp is better!

    Hi Pati! I made this flourless cake this afternoon, adding pistachios as the nuts, and it turned out so moist and delicious! Thank you for sharing your husbands favorite cake from his Nana Jose!

    1. Pati

      Feb 16

      Awesome, Debra! Thank you!!

    Feb 13

    Pati,
    My cake did come out with hills and valleys….I came out with a rather perfect light chocolate crust dome. Then “sank” perfectly into a nice flat cake. It didn’t have that nice dark color. So, is it because I used bittersweet morsels, rather the expensive block chocolate? I’m sorry that I didn’t pay attention, as I was listening rather than watching you. What did I miss?

    1. Pati

      Feb 20

      ​Alexis your cake is perfectly perfect! It flattens out after it cools down because of the ingredients it uses and because it is flourless. Hope you liked the taste!​

  77. Lorie Dorrian

    Feb 12

    Thank you for this recipe!!!! It reminds me of my grandama’s whacky cake. That one uses flour, but no eggs!!!
    Love its simplicity!

    1. Pati

      Feb 13

      Your grandma’s whacky cake sounds so interesting!

  78. Jessica

    I honestly couldn’t see how this cake would taste good but when you made this cake for your husband, the look on his face was very convincing that I had to give this cake a try…. it’s DELICIOUS!! I went to a small gathering and it was a HIT! I love your shows, thank you 🙂

    1. Pati

      Oct 04

      YAY!!!! Thank you, Jessica!

    Hi Pati! My kids and I love your show! (My daughter loves your accent and the way you say salsa!) I made this cake today and it didnt come out flat..at all. One edge raised up like a big wave and the rest is all hills and valleys. Do you know what could have caused this? My batter was a bit stiff before baking, not sure if thats normal or not. It didnt want to simply pour out of the blender. Maybe I over blended? Anyway, thanks for any help you might be able to give! Cant wait to try some more of your delicious recipes!

    1. Pati

      Jul 05

      It should have hills and valleys, which makes it create a delicious uneven chocolaty crust in some areas. It is one of my favorite things about this cake… =)

  81. Mari Tamanaha

    Jul 02

    I love this cake!!! Made it last Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Do you have the nutritional info for those on low carb life style? Mahalo- Mari

You and your family have an open invitation to visit (and perhaps cook a meal!) anytime. Did I mention I just love this cake? …Michael

    Hi Pati,my kids are dairy free. Would I be able to use a vegan margarine instead of butter?

      Yes absolutely!

  84. Dee

    Jun 24

    Came out yummy. My husband want 3 of them next time since we have 3 spring form pans. 🙂 I made one change-I couldn’t find bitter sweet so I used semi-sweet and then only added half the sugar. It seemed to be fine but will try bitter sweet in the future when I have more time to get to a traditional grocer. I do have one questions Pecans are pretty pricey-have you ever tried it with walnuts or other nuts?

    1. Pati

      Jun 30

      Yes!! It’s great with other nuts!

  85. David

    Jun 13

    This cake is soooo good! Being gluten free I was anxious to try it. If you love chocolate this is the cake for you!

      I’m thrilled you liked it David!!

  86. Martha

    Feb 15

    I am such a big fan! Love, love, love your show. While I’ve enjoyed many chefs’ teachings over the years, your cooking I would eat every day! Your recipes are so much more than ingredients…they are treasured family stories and/or history lessons. I appreciate the complexity of flavors you bring to every dish. I cannot eat peppers but even when you have them as an ingredient, the dish has so many flavor layers, the peppers are never missed.

    This cake is perfection, especially for my gluten free family members. Thank you for sharing so much!

    1. Pati

      Feb 16

      Martha, thank you thank you! What a kind note! I am thrilled that you and your family enjoy my recipes. =)

    Hi,

    The recipe is the perfect answer to a diabetic’s sweet tooth! Since the carbs from flour wasn’t there, my reading was much lower than when I’d have regular cake. I used a Ninja, but I think that was a mistake. It was harder to clean the blades to get the yummy batter. Will use my Cuisinart next time. I will also send this to my friend who has celiac disease. I think it’ll be okay. I looove your show.

    1. Pati

      Aug 25

      Hola Annie, Thank you so much! Good to know it works for diabetics. And, yes, you can recommend it to your friend; it is gluten free!

    Patti, love your show and the simple down home recipes with easily found ingredients! As my hubby and I both love seafood and fish your recipes today will be my menu this coming weekend. We are 60 and 64 respectively and as you get older the taste buds go on the fritz so mexican recipes are a staple at our house. Your recipes have been a wonderful addition! Hope to see you cooking for many years to come and love your travels too! By the way what were the little fish you were shown fishing for today?

    1. Pati

      Jul 09

      Those tiny little fish are called charales. They are the white fish or “pescado blanco” from Patzcuaro, but when they are very tiny. Thanks for watching my show!

    could you use sucanat or brown rice syrup instead of white sugar in this cake recipe & same amount?

      Same amount for brown rice syrup…

    Hi, Patti. I love your show so much. I gotta try this cake, could I use a 9inch glass brownie pan instead of springform pan?

    1. Pati

      Yes, you can use a 9-inch brownie pan instead! Thank you for watching the show!!

    This is always my go to cake, with a toddler always at my feet it so easy to throw together. It’s very rich and decadent, I always have to make two if I’m taking it to a party (one for home of course)! I’m not big on pecans so I always sub hazelnuts, turns out perfect every time! Thank you!

    1. Pati

    Hello! Would like to try this recipe at Christmas with roasted chestnuts, but unsure how to measure them. Would doing a rough chop before measuring give an accurate measurement?

    Also, this may seem weird, but would you please consider being a voice/reader for an audio book? Your voice is so sweet & soothing!

    Keep up the great job!

    1. Pati

      Mar 03

      Hola Lori, Yes, a rough chop would work for measuring 1 cup of the chestnuts! I’m laughing so hard over the voice for an audio book! Thank you for your comments!!

    Hi Pati,

    I’ve tried a few of your recipes and loved them. I’m trying this one the flour less cake today. I just one question. Do we need to toast the pecans? Thank you!

      Jan 06

      Hi Adrian, So happy to hear you are trying some of my recipes! No need to toast the pecans for the cake.

    Pati, my wife was recently diagnosed with a gluten intolerance and we saw you making this recipe on TV and were overjoyed that it did not call for any flour. We made it last night and it was wonderful! Now my wife can add another dessert to her choices of gluten free foods. Hope you continue to make gluten free foods in future shows. Thanks!

    Hi Pati, just made this for my family. It comes together so quickly and tastes great! I topped it with whipped cream and raspberries. For next time, I’m thinking almonds and orange . . . the possibilities are endless!

    has anyone tried it with coconut flour?

  112. Sidney

    Aug 11

    A really great and simple recipe. I’ve made it about 3 times so far. Each time was a bit different. The first time I stuck to the recipe exactly and it came out fantastic. Then for the other two I used Coconut oil rather than Butter (Works almost as well since both are solid at cooler temperatures although Coconut oil does begin to melt sooner than butter) and substituted Almonds for the Pecans (Although Pecans are a natural mix with the cocoa since they have a dark Maple type of flavor). Basically you can play endlessly. I should also note that I use Dutch Processed Baking Cocoa Powder. Works really well. I may be putting too much since it is pure Cocoa Powder and this makes the cake a bit more bitter and less sweet but this is desired by my wife and I.

    Thank you for the recipe Pati. I look forward to all of your other recipes.

    1. Pati

    i’m not a confident baker so this easy dessert goes into my MAKE SOON file ..
    thank you, pati!

    Just wondering if this can be made without the nuts, or if the cake will fail without the nuts (with so few ingredients I imagine they might be an important part of the cake’s structure)? I have a nut-free family but would love to try this…

    1. Pati

      May 26

      I suggest you try this one instead, Karen http://patijinich.com/pati_2020/2012/09/jujus_birthday_cake/

    2. Priscilla

      May 30

      This looks really good to me too! I have a child with a nut allergy. I’m gonna try using sunflower seeds, instead. It just might work. I’ve made sunbutter cookies, and they taste pretty good. So maybe that substitution will work.

      1. Pati

        May 30

        Hola Priscilla, Go for it!! Let me know how it turns out with the sunflower seeds…

      2. Pati

        That is a GREAT idea!

    Thank you for this easy and reliable recipe. We can’t eat grain and we missed having a luxurious treat. This cake fills every craving. I added a little extra cocoa powder and this gives it a more cake-like consistency. Everyone should try this recipe at least once (but it will probably become a staple). Gracias, Pati….me encanta tu programa!

    As the (middle-aged) child of an excellent cook who loves to experiment, I was raised on international cuisine. The ingredients for this cake are so similar to the classic French flourless chocolate cake – but it’s simplicity make it very Impossible Pie-like. I am hoping it will become a family favorite for my own foodies. Thanks for the passion you bring to your show and to sharing with us the joy you bring to your family table. It is so evident in your show.

    1. Pati

      Hola Sharon, You may try it with the sugar substitute of your choice instead of using sugar. However, I would only use half amount or less of sugar substitute, since sugar substitutes tend to be much sweeter than sugar.

    I made this on Friday and all I can say is:”thank you Nana Jose!” This is so delicious that every time you walk through the kitchen you want a little pinch of that cake. I really think it improves over the next day. Also, this is the easiest cake I have ever made.

    Pati,
    Loved this show. I made the Coctel de Camarones and it was delicioso. Tonight I am trying the flourless chocolate cake. It sounds wonderful!

    Question – Do you serve this hot, right out of the oven, or does it need to be totally cooled?

    1. Pati

      You can serve it hot, warm or cold! Doesn’t need to be totally cooled at all.

    My husband who happens to be from mexico city loves this cake, but says to him it tastes more like a brownie. Is it suppose to taste like a brownie did I do something wrong?

    Pati,

    Love this recipe. Saw you on Create TV last weekend. I have made it 3 times all ready. Family loves it. It is so easy. We have pecan trees and we raise chickens so we have lots of eggs. Perfect recipe.

    Can I substitute almonds for the pecans and still expect good results?
    My wife hates “oily” nuts like walnuts and pecans. But she will eat almonds.

    I am hooked on Pati’s show and cannot wait until the next episode. I was the star of our Sunday family dinner thanks to Nana Jose’s Flourless Chocolate Pecan Cake. I’m not telling my family how ridiculously easy this was to make.

    Can you please modify recipe if using a 10-1/4″ spring form pan instead? Or your best judgement.
    Thank you!

      Lisa,
      I’d just remove it form the oven 5 to 6 minutes before: give it a try!

        Thanks Pati, but I ruined it a bit; went 10 over and did not use bittersweet, but organic without any sugar in it, chocolate;, adding a bit more sugar to compensate. Was too dry; my fault.
        Was so simple and yet my thoughts were elsewhere.. Will try another time.

          baking is chemistry, you just can’t change the formula and expect the results to replicate the original recipe, people do this all the time and report a bad results.
