Moms’ Night Out: Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake

I was recently invited to a moms’ night out gathering at a friend’s house and I knew actually what I wanted to make for the group, flourless chocolate cake with espresso.  I wouldn’t normally bake with espresso for fear that my toddler would have a bite and be bouncing off the walls, but I knew the mom crowd would appreciate this added ingredient.  Plus, the added coffee enhances the chocolate flavor, so that’s reason enough for me.

The recipe calls for 70% cacao baking chocolate and my local grocery store actually carried Guittard Chocolate brand.  Only the best for mom, right?!  It turns out that this is the BEST indulgent chocolate cake I have ever made and will continue to make for special occasions in the future.  It’s surprisingly easy to make and after 1 hour of baking you are almost ready to pour your favorite glass of red wine to enjoy with it.  Cheers!
