Flourless cakes are the bomb.
And no, I am not going all no carb on you.
Trust me that could never happen at our house. I am pretty sure we consume a whole loaf of whole grain bread every morning. Oh, and then there’s Kai and his bagels. The kid loves bagels. There are definitely days when he eat Einstein’s sesame seed bagels for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
No, I am not kidding.
But really, who knew that flourless cakes (cakes, cupcakes, whatever) could be so, well heavenly?
Yeah, I said heavenly.
It is the perfect word for these.
Ok, wait. I know I say this about lots of things all the time, but I truly mean it, I do. But these, these are a chocolate lovers dream.
How do I know?
I sent one my mom’s way. The ultimate chocoholic. Remember, she drinks hot chocolate for breakfasts instead of coffee (except she drinks it by the half-gallon).
Actually, she sort of just stole one. I had asked her to help me with a shot I wanted to get that needed four hands, not just two. I was explaining to her what I wanted to achieve and I look over and she’s got one is her mouth. Full on, cake in her face. Whipped cream on her nose and a look in her eyes that could only mean one thing.
She swallowed and said “Those are heavenly.” In a slow calm voice, that made you know she meant it. Really meant it. And that is why I love to cook. Reactions like that. They make my day.
They are pretty simple. Basically just eggs, chocolate, beer (Yup! Beer!), butter and some more chocolate. The chocolate swirled whipped cream is the perfect complement to the rich chocolate cake. It’s so good.
It’s Friday and these cakes deserve a little Irish dance!
