RECIPE BACKSTORY
I experimented with making a flourless chocolate cake. It turned out pretty well! I didn't have a recipe to follow, so I made my own. The only problem I had with it, there was a "crust" of sorts on the top of the pieces. While I turned them upside down, it was evident when cutting the fork into it. The centers were moist, dense, and delicious. So the crust was very contradictory of the actual cake. I did notice, however, it peeled off very easily. I'm hoping to do some alterations to the recipe, but as it stands now, it's pretty good!
