I was craving for some bittersweet chocolate cake and was looking high and low for a simple recipe that would cost me less $ and time. You know, as a
"jobless" SAHM, I've little amount of those two, ka-ching and tick tock.. [pls read " jobless" LemonGrass entry here] :D
Well, I never had any interest in baking flourless cake or anything before. But, after I saw BakerZin's pic of Chocolate Amer, a flour less chocolate sponge cake with chocolate mousse, I was really tempted to bake one. It looks so chocolaty and my taste buds were begging me to have it at once. I decided to make a copycat of the cake but for sure it'll never be 100% as good/looks as Bakerzin's ones. I found a simple flour less chocolate cake recipe at Chocolate Bakery.com and it took me less than half an hour preparation from end to end before I popped it in the oven.
The cake turned out to be moist and very chocolaty. I usually thought a flour less cake would be chewy and gooey, but naah..not this one. My only mistake was to lessen the sugar from 1 1/4 cup to 1 cup. So the bitter taste goes a bit too far for my liking, if it was to be eaten plain.Thus, the chocolate mousse has done a wonderful job in lowering down the bitter taste with it sweet and creamy sensation.
BTW, no chocolate mousse pic taken. Adam was screaming for me after he woke up from his nap.. hehe I rushed for him and my next hours were occupied fulling his non-stop attentions and chores. Who said SAHM is a jobless job at the first place?
