    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a cross between a brownie and a chocolate bar, a decadent rich chocolate cake with an amazing texture. This is the ultimate after dinner dessert sprinkled with powdered sugar, drizzled with a chocolate glaze or topped off with a dollup of whipped cream. It can also be made in a 9-inch cake pan instead of a springform pan. This can be made a day ahead but is better served the same day it is made, if you prepare a day ahead, cover and leave at room temperature. You will love this decadent chocolate cake!

      Easy, fun to make, and delicious to eat. I used dark chocolate but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. You could probably play around by adding any spice you like, ie. cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or allspice. But I wanted to try the recipe as written and get the pure chocolate/almond flavour. Would make it again.

      This is EXCELLENT! Only for almond lovers though...if you don't like almond extract flavor you won't like this. I used almond meal and subbed 3T of Splenda brown sugar blend for step 3 and then Splenda Granular for the other 2/3 cups of worked great and no funny aftertaste. I tried grinding my bittersweet chocolate chips with my immersion blender in a bowl because I don't have a food processor and my blender only does well with liquids...I made quite a mess...chocolate splatters everywhere...but it still worked out in the end. I felt like I was playing with marzipan with the batter...I was tempted to sculpt it into something. I couldn't resist adding some frozen dark sweet cherries pushed into the top of the batter once I put it in the pan...Perfect! This is an impressive cake for a special occasion when you want something a little different. Made for the Zaar tag game.
