Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

I finally finished reading a book that I bought back in February. A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg is a really enjoyable memoir. In spite of me not finishing it quickly, it really is a good book.

And should you happen to meet her or read her book, you will learn that the name of her blog is not because of her hair color, but rather in honor of chocolate dipped candied orange peels.

Molly has a natural talent of weaving words together, making you feel as though you are experiencing what she is writing. It was with her last chapter that I found inspiration to create my first flourless chocolate cake.
