    WiGal's Note:

    A decadent brownie like TOH recipe that does not use flour! Its creator, Peggy Gwillim, says it is gluten free. Serve with ice cream or alone. A strawberry or raspberry syrup with fresh berries looks and tastes great also. This is baked in a spring form pan. Tastes best if chilled day before. Freezes well. Notice the review from Chef #1236316 who subbed in 2 cups of almond meal for the 2 1/2 cups of almonds which is fine with me. Also notice Chef#1213645 review about subbing in an equivalent amount of raw honey for the sugar which is also fine with me.

      *Comment 15 Sept 2008* Hi WiGal. Great looking cake. Just dropping by to say ....Yes!- your cake is gluten-free. Care should be taken for any gf bakers that gf ingredients are used -check the cocoa, chocolate, coffee granules and confectioners flour are suitable. I love flourless chocolate cakes and cakes made using ground almonds/almond meal. Your recipe has gone into my cookbook to make later :) *Reviewed for ZWT5 France visit for the Zaar Chow Hounds Team* Merci WiGal!!! This is one FABULOUS (gluten-free) cake!!! THis is now my favourite flourless chocolate cake recipe. WONDERFUL!!!! SO chocolatey and rich. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!! I toasted my blanched almonds in a dry skillet and processed them as stated. I would recommend this in preference to using ground almonds/almond meal/almond flour. The home processed almonds are slightly coarser textured and seemed to give the cake more stability. This cake does not 'sink' or collapse in the middle as other flourless cakes I have tried. Toasting the almonds seems to give a better depth of flavour as wel;. We served with chantilly cream and chocolate shavings. Your cake is gluten-free as written- provided gf ingredients are used. Pure sugar IS gluten-free. Photo also being posted. I

      This is a spectacular cake and one that is "almost gluten-free." Those who suffer from digestive disorders may want to eliminate the 2 Tbsp of sugar and replace it with 2 Tbsp honey (raw is preferred). Celiacs and other disorder sufferers have difficulty digesting sugar too!

      This is a great recipe! I made it for a Passover seder and it received rave reviews! I didn't have whole almonds, so I used 2 cups of almond meal instead.
