I have always believed that the best way to show someone you love them is to cook for them. Cooking for someone takes thought, effort, and care – and after all, isn’t that what showing love is all about?
I also firmly believe that chocolate is a darn good way to show love as well!
Sunday, May 8th is Mother’s Day! Why not show your mom or the mother of your children just how loved and appreciated she is with this gorgeous Flourless Chocolate Berry Cake? It’s rich, decadent, lovely, and pretty simple to make (but we don’t have to tell her that!). It’s so simple you can get the kids involved – and speaking from experience, nothing melts my heart faster than home baked goodies from the kiddos.
This flourless cake is spiked up a bit with crème de cassis – a black currant liqueur, but you could also use raspberry liqueur or, for a non-alcoholic substitute, an equal amount of melted currant jelly, an equal amount of raspberry juice, or even raspberry extract (use half the amount of crème de cassis called for in the recipe).
Recipe Notes: I use organic sugar and good quality (not store brand) chocolate chips in this recipe as well as organic butter and heavy cream.
