Flourless Chocolate Cakes
Each and every one of my cookbooks is like my child, my baby. I put work, creativity, love, time, and money into each book hoping that it will be well received in kitchens everywhere. My newest book, Unbelievably Gluten-Free, is no exception. If books are truly like children, then this one is the child on a special diet, the child who cannot eat bread or cake, who must forgo gluten – the protein in wheat, barley, and rye – in order to be well, to live. I loved writing this book and coming up with ways everyone who follows a gluten-free diet can still enjoy fried chicken, meatloaf, lasagna, pizza, pasta, pie, even cake. One of the most delicious of all chocolate cakes is naturally gluten-free because it contains no flour to help it rise. You beat the eggs well and then slowly incorporate melted semisweet chocolate until the batter is thickened, and this is what allows the cake to rise and then gently fall when cooling, yielding a soft, gooey chocolate center that is downright irresistible. Enjoy this recipe from my new book!
