    Boomette's Note:

    This is very good. This is a cake that is completely different from any other cakes. The texture is really different. I'm never disappointed by the recipes of Giada.

      Wow! Flourless chocolate cake at it's finest. I halved the orange zest, so it would be subtle. Made them in a small muffin tin as little cakes, and baked for 11 minutes -- it made 2 dozen (7.5 grams of fat each). They were like really yummy brownies. Made for a birthday, and everyone gobbled them up!
