This no bake chocolate cake tastes like a flourless chocolate cake, but you don’t need to do any baking. It is easy to make and doesn’t require flour, eggs, or oil. The cake comes out rich and chocolatey.
I am really excited to share this no bake cake. It really does taste a lot like a classic flourless chocolate cake except that it’s not served warm. It’s such an easy dessert and it’s hard to believe that no baking is required.
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Pumpkin Or Banana Puree
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: You can also use bittersweet chocolate chips if you don’t mind that your cake will be less sweet. Most of the sweetness is coming from the chocolate chips, so I prefer to use semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Pumpkin or Banana Puree: This recipe works with both pumpkin puree (a great way to use up some leftover puree) or banana puree (so you can make this cake all year long). If you use pumpkin, the cake will not be quite as sweet. You don’t really taste the pumpkin because the chocolate overpowers the pumpkin flavor. The cake has a bittersweet, rich chocolate flavor. You can use either canned or homemade pumpkin puree.
If you use banana puree, your cake will be sweeter. However, you will also taste the banana flavor. It will taste like banana and chocolate. If you are using banana puree, make sure you actually puree your bananas in a food processor or blender to remove all lumps. Just mashing is not enough. Also, make sure to use fresh bananas. Frozen bananas have too much water. Applesauce is not a good substitute for bananas in this recipe.
