Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe
There are two kinds of ‘flourless’ Chocolate Cake.  The first is the dense and fudgy type, which I have never liked.  It’s way too intense for me.  The second, which is my preference, is a lighter version, ethereal and tender.

If you are looking for the perfect dessert to make for Valentine’s Day, this is it!  The real beauty of this cake is just how easy it is to make.  Even the chocolate decoration come together in a snap.  It’s meant to impress and it does!  

For a cake that says ‘I Love You’ in the sweetest way possible, it’s the perfect dessert for anytime you want to make something extra special for the chocolate lovers in your life.

Chocolate cake!!
