Flourless Chocolate Cake

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two muffin tins with liners and dust with cocoa powder.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter with heavy cream over medium low heat. Once melted, add the chocolate (chopped) and stirl until smooth. Take off heat.

Step 3
In stand mixer, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and sea salt. Whisk in the chocolate mixture.

Step 4
Pour batter (will be thin) into liners, 2/3 full and bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool.

Step 4
Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
