“This is a yummy recipe I adapted for my son who is gluten-free. It's amazingly simple to make and always is a big hit. When using a double-boiler (I use a metal bowl on top of a pot) make sure the water in the pot doesn't touch the upper bowl or your chocolate will seize.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and butter an 8-inch round baking pan. Cut a circle of wax paper to fit in the bottom of the pan and grease it as well.
  2. Chop chocolate and butter into small pieces. In a double boiler (or metal bowl set over a saucepan) slowly melt chocolate with butter, stirring, until smooth.
  3. Remove from heat so that the bowl will cool. Mix in almond extract. Then add the sugar and whisk until smooth. Next add the eggs and whisk. Finally sift 1/2 cup cocoa powder and whisk until mixed.
  4. Pour the batter into pan and bake in middle of oven for about 22 minutes. Don't over cook! After the cake has cooled for 5 minutes, take it out of the pan, peel off the wax paper and sift the powdered sugar on top.
