Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

This is one of the first cakes I made when I was teaching myself to bake. It tastes amazing and only takes three steps to make. My husband asks for this cake every year on his birthday. I can’t believe that I haven’t gotten around to posting it.

This cake isn’t much of a looker but looks are deceiving. I love eating this cake hot as it’s silky and melt in your mouth chocolate  cake. Alex likes to eat it cold as it becomes thick, rich and dense. I have this cake written down in my recipe book so I’m not 100% sure where it came from but I think I got it from the Green & Black’s website.
