Flourless Chocolate Orange Cake - Nigella

I made a few flourless recipes from Nigella, last year.  When I came upon her flourless chocolate lime cake, I jumped to make it.  I did change the lime to orange to ensure, we would like it.  I can see this being made with a tinge of any of the citrus flavors.  I suggest being heavy on the zest, if you like the flavor.  This recipe uses almond flour which you can get by finely processing almonds. 

This month, Forever Nigella is using the theme, “Seduced by Chocolate”, and the deadline is February 20th.  You can still get a recipe in, if you would like.  

This recipe was easy to make, melt, beat, mix, pour, bake, unmold and take out a plate to serve it on.  EAT!!!!!  You will find this in Nigella's new book, Nigella Kitchen.

You can find this recipe at Nigella's home.
