Flourless Agave Chocolate Ganache Cake


    One 10" Cake



  • 7 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 2/3 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves
  • 1 3/4 sticks of butter
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 large eggs (separated)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 10 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 oz. agave




Grease a 10” springform pan.

In a double boiler, combine chocolate and butter and heat until melted and smooth.

Transfer to a medium non-corrosive bowl, and whisk in egg yolks and vanilla.

Continue to whisk, adding agave, cocoa powder and salt.

In a stand mixer, whip egg whites to soft peaks.

Fold 1/3 whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture, repeat with remaining whites, then pour into a prepared pan.

Place in preheated convection oven with a low fan and bake for approximately 25 minutes.

Remove to cooling rack and immediately remove springform, allow to cool completely.

Invert cake onto a flat plate or cardboard circle.

Place back onto cooling rack, cover with a thin coating of raspberry preserves and pour ganache over top. Level off with a spatula being sure to cover sides completely.

Place remaining ganache into a small pastry bag and decorate top if desired.



Finely chop chocolate and place in a non-corrosive bowl along with agave.

Bring cream just to a boil and pour over chocolate.

Allow to sit for approximately 2 minutes, then stir until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
