I’ve never baked a cake without flour and wasn’t sure what the texture would be like. This recipe called for almond meal which gives the cakes just a hint of nutty flavour. The small cakes are dense but moist and extremely rich with a deep chocolate flavour. I am glad I baked them in a medium-sized muffin tin because I think it is the perfect portion size.
I added a little creamy texture to the cakes by adding the chocolate glaze. I also wanted to cut through some of the richness and add another flavour dimension so I garnished with juicy, sugared raspberries. The raspberries provided a welcoming freshness. The cakes could also be garnished simply with a delicate, sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries or blueberries.
