Flourless Chocolate Cake

October 17, 2013

This cake in my home is now known as “Soulless GOP Coconut and Nut Cake”.  If you don’t like the name you might like the cake.  This simple chocolate cake just alone is the fastest cake ever, but because I had a few Republicans for dinner during the shutdown I thought I would ‘Let Them Eat Cake’.
