CHOCOLATE ALMOND BLISS

I love baking cakes, brownies, and testing energy balls off the top of my head. It's so fun, it allows me to be creative and doesn't constrain me to any rules. 

And of course, when the experiment is a success; well, that's the best part.

This delectable chocolate almond cake is fluffy, super chocolatey and melts in your melts. I of course added a little bit of crunch with the almonds because I love to play around with textures, it makes it more interesting. 

This cake serves 2-4 people, it takes literally 5 mins to prepare and 20 mins to bake.

This cake is vegan if the chopped dark chocolate bits you use are vegan, otherwise it is non.
