On the drive in to work this morning, I caught the tail-end of an interview with Nigella Lawson, and the popularity of the flourless chocolate cake - which I have never tried making.

Yum. Now I know what I'm baking this weekend! Check out Nigella's recipes here for chocolate raspberry heart cake and dense chocolate loaf cake. They both look amazing, but I'm going to go the easier route and make the loaf cake - which apparently is even better if it sits for a day.

Valentine's crisis averted. Chocolate to the rescue!

That would be the "Frederick's of Hollywood" cake that I am making. It is kind of tacky, but doesn't it look good?

Mary, You were exactly right! Tacky but oh-so-delicious!

Hey - Ya gotta keep things exciting. I'm all for tacky. :)

I think children would enjoy making that cake too. I don't have any offspring yet, but I may just have to borrow some.
