Delicously Indulgent Chocolate Cake
This is the perfect cake to show a friend, lover, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife how much you care. I found this gluten free recipe at taste.com.au and adapted it by replaced the hazelnut meal with almond meal for a fluffier texture. You can serve it with some organic cream or a side of fresh strawberries. BB xxxx
200 grams dark chocolate, chopped
150 grams butter, chopped
