The Incredible 5 Ingredient $5 Audrey Hepburn Chocolate Cake


Are you an Audrey Hepburn fan? I am! If we had been friends with her and invited to her house for dinner, chances are she would have served this ELEGANT & EASY flourless cake! Well, something super similar anyway 😉 She LOVED this cake and if you’re a chocolate person, you will, too! This recipe is inspired- I don’t make it the way Audrey did, but the outcome is the same: a decedent brownie like cake that’s moist and rich at the same time!


Audrey Hepburn Inspired Cake
10 oz bag dark chocolate chips (I used the Great Value brand from WalMart)
1/4 cup whole milk (Must be whole milk)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
8 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar

This incredibly easy and affordable cake hack starts with one of my favorite things… a baking rack! It’s the quickest way to separate eggs- we are going to do this to 8 eggs.

Preheat oven to 400F, then grease & flour pan (I used a 10 inch round)

When Audrey Hepburn made this cake, she would chop her own chocolate, but we are going to make it easier. I picked up a 10 oz bag of chocolate chips from Walmart.
Melt the chocolate & milk in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. We are also melting out butter here.

Next, stir in melted butter. One those are combined, mix in egg yolks, then set aside.

In a separate large bowl, beat egg whites while gradually adding in the sugar until stiff peaks form. My tip is to hold the mixer upside down. We are looking for the peaks to stand up on their own. Finally, gently add your egg whites to the chocolate mixer. I do this by simply twisting my spatula.

Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes.When the timer goes off, open your oven and let it sit for 10 minutes in the oven before moving to the counter to finish cooling.

Top with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
Even better the next day ❤️

Note: To make this gluten free, use GF flour when preparing your pan.
