For quite some time I have been meaning to try a variation of this recipe. My brother in law and a close real friend are both gluten free and it seemed like an opportunity to learn how to work without flour. The result was dense and super cholocatey, but I think I left it in the oven 5 minutes more than I should have.
I served this because my sibling and her husband came to town and she shares a bday month with Maura, my other sibling, so I volunteered to make a shared cake for the celebration. I think it was best served with ice cream, and luckily we had some on hand! Baking can be something of a mystery, and I wish I had more opportunities to perfect my skills. The problem is you have to have somebody to eat what you baked and if it is bad, (which on occasionally happens to even the best home chef) you are hesitant to give it to somebody under the guise of thoughtfulness. Being thoughtful is so gratifying, doing something which looks thoughtful but isn’t seems like work I’d rather not do do. Luckily this cake did not go the way of pudding cookies (threw most of them away) or raw garlic scape ravioli (apologized but shared it anyway).
