This chocolate cake with almonds is not a looker BUT it is the most amazing flourless chocolate cake you could ever imagine. Matthew made it for my birthday and so far today it’s all I’ve eaten, in fact I’ve eaten so much I am shaking. He is such a great cake maker and he says this delicious treat only took 30 minutes from start to finish! Thank you Matthew xx
