Flourless Chocolate Cake

My husband and I share a deep love of chocolate. We will go out of our way for a delicious piece of handmade chocolate. So it should not come as any surprise that one of my favorite kinds of cake to bake is any kind of chocolate cake. We love chocolate, devil’s food, and red velvet cakes, but this Flourless Chocolate Cake is our favorite.

This cake holds a very special place in my heart because not only is it my favorite cake, but it was also the first cake that I ever baked for my husband. Dark and rich, this cake explodes with chocolate flavor. Like a brownie, you only need one piece to conquer any chocolate cravings.

Because this cake has very few ingredients, it is important to use the best chocolate that you can.

I love to serve this cake with raspberries and whipped cream. The tartness of the berries is delicious against the dark chocolate.
