    AllergyQueen's Note:

    It is really hard to make chocolate desserts that are free of milk, soy and wheat. This cake, while it doesn't have quite the nice texture that you would get using butter, is certainly sufficient.

      This has been a hit every time I've made it. I have also used bittersweet chocolate instead of unsweetened (can't always find pareve unsweetened when I want it), and cut down considerably on the added sugar. Most recently, I wanted to use up some Passover "leftovers," so I experimented by adding chocolate chips, banana slices, and walnuts. I had to increase the baking time quite a bit, but it came out absolutely delicious and my guests all raved.

      Thank you for a great recipe!

      I made it for a Passover (flour-free) dish for diners who are lactose-intolerant. I sprinkled sweetened cocoa powder on top. It was a huge success and 6 out of 7 diners loved it, regradless of allergy requirements. Even the hard-to-please claimed it was as good as any good restaurant dessert. Only one diner found it too sweet.
