I baked a cake for you! I figured Valentines Day is right around the corner and we needed something sweet around here. It’s been a while since I made something chocolate and the fewer the ingredients for me, the better, so I decided to make a flourless cake!
Besides I’ve been waiting for just the right reason for me to showcase these beautiful hazelnuts that I recently purchased from my friend Cathy’s new store on her blog. Cathy lives in Oregon which happens to be the single largest producer of hazelnuts in the U.S.
Rich, decadent, fudgy and dense that’s how I would describe this cake, just make sure you buy a good quality dark chocolate it makes all the difference.
I’m not a chocoholic by any means, once or twice a year I like to get my fix, but I have to admit the aroma of rich dark chocolate as its melting makes me wonder why I don’t bake with it more often!
With a dollop of fresh whipped cream to balance the yummy richness and a strawberry slice shaped into a heart, this could be your perfect Valentines Day dessert!
