Rebecca Judd's super easy five ingredient flourless chocolate cake recipe

Quick, easy and delicious.

Self isolation and baking go hand-in-hand, but there's just one little problem - managing to get your hands on some flour.
Just like toilet paper, pasta and canned tomatoes, flour has quickly become one of those coveted supermarket items that seems to be sold out absolutely everywhere right now.
But thankfully, if you're finding it impossible to buy flour at the moment, there are still plenty of ways you can get your bake on, without this key ingredient.
And one way to get around this baking conundrum is to whip up a flourless cake.
Flourless cakes are deliciously moist and indulgent, but of course don't need flour at all.
Lucky for us, Melbourne TV presenter and influencer Bec Judd has shared her own genius flourless chocolate cake recipe on Instagram.
And the best part? It only contains five ingredients.
The 37-year-old wife of former AFL star Chris Judd, with whom she shares four children - Oscar, Billie and twins Tom and Darcy - uploaded a hilarious video of herself cooking this recipe with her kids while in isolation (you can watch the video in the player below).
"I baked our family fave flourless chocolate cake with my kids. It's literally the easiest cake in the world to make (chuck everything in the bowl and mix. That's it) and is something we've been enjoying doing together as a family as we adjust to our new routine," Bec wrote on Instagram.
"There are no raising agents in it, so it's supposed to be flatter (I didn't stuff it up) and bloody delicious!!!!"
Here is the full recipe:
INGREDIENTS
200gms butter (room temperature)
200gms drinking chocolate
200gms almond meal
200gms caster sugar
5 eggs
METHOD
Chuck everything in a bowl. Mix with wooden spoon. Bake for 40minutes in 160C fan forced oven.
When cooled, dust with icing sugar and raspberries (if you have them but not essential).
Done! (I use a lined springform round tin but you can use anything really. I've also done them in a slice tray and cut them up as brownies)
