I’ve been majorly slacking with the baking lately. There just aren’t enough hours in the day, you know? But when your husbands coworker asks if we’re having marital problems because I haven’t sent him to work with any treats lately, then I guess it’s time to get back in the kitchen! And since Jake’s coworker’s favorite baked good is flourless chocolate cake, that’s what I made. With a typical me twist: almond.
I haven’t made this cake in a while. I used to have an amazing family recipe that was written on a post-it. I had it memorized, but somewhere over the years, the physical (and mental) recipe got lost. And it was GOOD. And EASY. So I haven’t made one since, hoping that the recipe would one day come back to be. But it hasn’t, so I started with what I remember being the closest thing – a recipe from Williams-Sonoma. I also used a mixture of Mast Brothers chocolate, a local company based out of the Bronx. Mainly because I couldn’t resist their pretty packaging…not that you taste the packaging in the cake, but quality chocolate definitely makes it better!
