This Fudgy Flourless Chocolate Cake In A Jar will impress you with its deliciously intense chocolate flavor, versatility and simplicity! A rich, decadent chocolate dessert that’s fudgy in the middle and crisp on the outside, and studded with toasted pecans for another depth of flavor and texture. Very portable and perfect for any type of entertaining, including tailgating parties, and pairs splendidly with these single-serve stacked wines from Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi!
It’s August already and that means pretty soon it’s back to school, and back to college football! No, I’m not a sports fan, let’s get that out of the way first. 🙂 But, I’m most definitely a food fan, and football season may as well be alternate spelling for foodball season. Tailgating is serious business, and living in a college town, it’s not something I can avoid. There’s clearly no point trying to beat ’em, so this year, I’m going to join ’em, with a really nifty Fudgy Flourless Chocolate Cake In A Jar recipe that’s perfect for tailgating, and pairing with just as fun, portable stacked wines!
These Single-Serve Stacked Wines from Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi, Simi and Mark West, come in versatile, on-the-go, individual “glasses” stacked on top of each other (they lock on top of each other too!). It’s good-quality wine, in a single-serve, convenient, recyclable package that locks in freshness. With 4 servings in one package, they are great for tailgating events, and sharing with friends!
So I wanted to come up with a beautiful recipe that’d be perfect for pairing with these stacked wines, but also versatile and portable itself, just like the wine. There’s not going to be any shortage of appetizers or savory, spicy finger foods at any tailgating party, but the few that I’ve been to almost never had any gourmet desserts! 🙂 Usually, desserts are my responsibility at any potluck party that I go to. So enter, fudgy flourless chocolate cake in a jar! A rich, decadent, gluten-free, flourless chocolate cake, that’s sinfully fudgy in the middle and crackly on top, with a great balance of dense and light textures.
I love individual desserts that can be made in mason jars, so that the rich decadence is all yours and you don’t have to share it with anyone! This flourless chocolate cake in a jar is perfect for any type of entertaining. You can easily make these and then store in the fridge until you need ’em. They are just as portable whether they are unbaked (should be chilled before you transport them), or baked. And just as delicious whether warm or chilled! This fudgy, flourless chocolate cake is incredibly versatile, and IF by any chance, one portion of this fudgy in the center and crisp on the outside, delicious cake is too much for one serving for you (seriously, are you even real??), you can screw the top back on and save it for later.
If you can recall, I previously did a great wine pairing recipe for Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay, and loved it. This time, I was excited to try Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon. Woodbridge wines have been around for over 30 years, and I really love the versatility of these single-serve wines. It’s a brand that I trust, and this flourless chocolate cake in a jar recipe is an elegant pairing with the wine. That intense chocolate flavor pairs perfectly with the deep tannins and berry flavor of the wine.
This fudgy, flourless chocolate cake is also super easy to make! You can mix everything in one bowl and store the batter in generously buttered 1/2 pint mason jars. The cooking time can range from 15-30 minutes, depending on whether you bake these from room temperature or chilled. The best way to know if it’s done is to take it out of the oven when the cakes have risen and look crisp and crackly on top. The cake will sink a little as it cools down, but the center will still be deliciously fudgy. I even added some toasted pecans that really heightened the texture with their crunch, but that’s optional (although recommended!).

Fudgy Flourless Chocolate Cake In A Jar
- 1 stick of butter 1/2 cup
- 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- 1 ⁄3 cup brown sugar
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- 3 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tbsp of malted drink powder dissolved in 3 tbsp water OR ¼ cup of strongly brewed coffee
- 3 tbsp ground almonds
- ⅓ cup chopped pecans toasted
- Whipped cream for serving
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place butter and chocolate in a microwave-proof large bowl and heat in 1 minute intervals to melt it.
- Add the sugars, salt and whisk to combine.
- Add eggs, baking powder, malt drink (or coffee), almond flour, and pecans, and stir well to combine.
- Generously butter 5 half pint mason jars. Divide the batter into these jars. These can be baked immediately, or close the jars and place them in the fridge to chill (or in the freezer for up to a month).
