French Chocolate Cake

You can find recipes for this cake all over, it is what is called a French chocolate cake. It has a really rich chocolate taste and could be a nice choice for those who have gluten problems as it contains very little flour, and especially if you use spelt instead of flour.

This is quite easy to make and has few ingredients but choosing quality ingredients makes it even better. It works really well with just dusting icing sugar over it but to get an even more chocolate richness I topped it with chocolate glaze and then with all the fresh berries that I had. Chocolate works with almost any fruit so choosing the seasonal fruits at each time is the way to go.

I will promise you that this cake is the perfect dessert and will impress your guests, and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream you won’t ask for anything else … well maybe a shot of espresso
