Stumbled upon this recipe in a food magazine when I was looking for cakes without flour to use on Passover. It is not exactly a "hip-friendly" cake but very, very tasty, melts in your mouth. Enjoy it it small pieces on Passover and the rest of the year. The measurements may seem a little strange, got them by converting grams and milliliters as the recipe was originally written in Swedish.

I've become a fan of Chef Dudo as his recipes are always winners. This was the highlight of a recent family dinner. However I prepared it a little differently to use only one dish by melting together the butter and chocolate in the microwave, then adding the sugar (only 1 1/4 cups because otherwise it would be too sweet), eggs and orange juice. There wasn't a crumb left!

I have been really missing baked goods since having to go on a gluten-free diet. This was delicious. Rich and creamy and beautiful. My family is quite wary of gluten free foods since many baked goods do not taste great but i served this for my Dad's Birthday and it was a great success.
