Craving Chocolate

Yesterday we went to Madison and stopped at Whole Foods to do a little shopping.  Just walking around that store makes a person feel happy.   The produce department looks like a work of art.  They have a wide variety of cheeses and they usually have samples out so that you can try them.  After that, it’s on to the pastries and breads.  A couple of weeks ago we bought a blood orange vanilla cake that was really beautiful and tasted really good.  This week the flourless chocolate cake caught my eye and I was debating whether or not to buy it when I decided that I would go home and make one myself.  After all, I had just purchased a ten pound block of chocolate from Williams and Sonoma a few hours earlier and my mouth was watering for chocolate. 

While Marshall cooked dinner I found a recipe and set to work.  You know how they always say that you should make sure to read through the entire recipe before you begin?  Well, I didn’t.  I got to the end of my recipe and found that the cake needed to be refrigerated overnight.  I really wanted my dark chocolate flourless cake but it was not to be.  So off to the fridge to get cool.

Next morning, before Church, I made the glaze.  I decided to use some Lindt chocolate for the glaze so that it would contrast with the chocolate in the cake.  Back to the fridge for a few more hours.  After church, I took the cake out to come to room temp.  And then it was time.  I have to say that it was really really good.  Very smooth dark chocolate.  It was every bit as good as I imagined it would be and Marshall liked it too.
