Chocolate cake
Eating this scrumptious yet simple dessert will always remind me of Paris, where I enjoyed my first "Moelleux au Chocolat" — fortunately for me and all other chocolate lovers this dish transfers very well to the states. In order to get this chocolate cake to rise (like a soufflé), the eggs need to be whipped, so that the air pockets inside them can expand in the oven. Long story short, when I first made these, my mixer broke so I had to whip the eggs by hand — it is totally doable, but you may get a severe hand cramp afterward. If you have an electric mixer, I advise using it.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
I'll be perfectly honest — I'm not much of a baker. The precise measurements, the exact timing of everything, it's not really my game. But, for this cake, I make an exception. For chocolate (especially dark chocolate) you should always make an exception. Rich, dark, fudgy, with a little crunch from the walnuts, let's just say this is not a chocolate cake for the I-just-kind-of-like-chocolate person.
