    RunninLion's Note:

    One of my friend's has celiac disease and cannot eat anything with gluten. Unfortunately for her, this usually means she cannot enjoy a lot of foods, particularly desserts, at gatherings. I made this cake with her in mind for our holiday party. It is rather time-consuming but definately worth it! The cake was rich and decadent and my friends really enjoyed it.

      To adapt this recipe, I used a total of 6 tablespoons of sugar (4 tablespoons with the chocolate, and 2 tablespoons with the egg whites), and the rest Slenda, to serve to diabetic family members. With this change, it had the texture of a moist, dense brownie, and was enjoyed by all.
