Almost Flourless Chocolate Cake

Chocolate-Cake- Chocolate-Cake-1 Chocolate-Cake-2 Chocolate-Cake-3 Chocolate-Cake-4 Chocolate-Cake-5 Chocolate-Cake-6 Chocolate-Cake-8 Nathalie Benezet is a chic little French chef who bops around her charming Parisian Macaron shop in a bold red lip whipping up delicious treats.  She is also the author of a brand new cookbook: Le Petit Paris (<–so cute, right?).

On Nathalie’s last trip to the states I  got to hang with her, eat with her and chat recipes.

Voila! Here is the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
