This flourless chocolate cake recipe is easy to make, perfectly moist, super fudgey and deliciously chocolatey. It’s made with bananas, peanut butter and chocolate- which in my book is the greatest trio that ever existed.

Sweet, moist, delicious chocolate cake

Every Friday I create a flourless recipe and share on my Instagram, I call it #FlourlessFridays. That’s how this delicious and simple flourless chocolate cake was born.

I always have my kitchen stocked with bananas in all stages of life, but I have to admit… during quarantine I was getting a little tired of always making banana bread. Don’t get me wrong, I am a banana bread kind of gal, but I was seeking some more excitement in my life. So, I took the road less traveled and made a different sweet treat with my spotty bananas.

Because this chocolate cake recipe is flourless, it is also gluten-free!

  • Peanut Butter

How to make flourless chocolate cake

I love that this recipe literally takes less than five minutes to prep. It’s as easy as throwing all your ingredients together in a blender or food processor and blending until smooth.

Once you have your batter, you will pour it into your baking dish of choice. I used an 8×8 baking dish, but you can use a loaf pan, mini loaf pan, cup cakes etc.

But for the sake of this recipe, let’s stick to the 8×8 baking dish. It’s best to line your baking dish with parchment paper so this way it’s easier to remove and your cake doesn’t stick to you pan.

Now this is optional, but it makes such a pretty design on top of the cake.

Once the batter is in the pan, you can pour peanut butter in zig zag’s across the top, using a toothpick spread the peanut butter in the opposite direction to create a feathering effect.

Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  1. This is amazing! I loved it. I had to make a gluten and lactose free cake for tomorrow and this saved my life. I added an extra egg bc they were not so big and a splash of lactose free milk bc I felt like the mixture was too dense. It tastes amazing thank you!
