It’s been about six years since I stopped blogging. However, since I have a lot more spare time (post-degree blues), I thought I’d start writing again. 🙂
This blog will be filled with:
thoughts (sometimes whimsical),
photos (lots of them), and
tried and true recipes I’ve found over the years (
mostly involving chocolate).
To start us off, I’ve decided to share a wonderful flour-less chocolate cake recipe (#noms).
A week or two ago, I was asked to make dessert for our STAND worship team night. Our wonderful and fearless leader is on a gluten- and dairy-free diet so I wanted to find something that would be suitable for her to eat. This recipe is gluten-free but unfortunately not dairy-free – I posed this to her and she said she would live. 🙂
This recipe was shortlisted and eventually became the winner. I must admit, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted something so dark and so good (even my dad liked it – that is something). As per usual though, I put in half the amount of sugar listed. Also, instead of 200g of (usually 45%) NORMAL dark chocolate – I used 100g 70% dark chocolate and 100g normal dark chocolate.
Finally, to counter the potential bitterness, I dusted a light layer of icing sugar onto the top of the cake before serving.
Enjoy the delightfully scrumptious chocolate-y-ness!
