Flourless Chocolate Spiced Cake with Rose Whipped Cream

Flourless Chocolate Spiced Cake with Vanilla Caviar & Rose Whipped Creamby Jessica Shepherd

This flourless cake is dense and truffle-like, moist and velvety, using in total about 3/4 of a pound of chocolate!    Brace yourself for a most brilliant cocoa-buzz, then prepare for lift off cause we’re gonna top it off with Rose Whipped Cream!

For me that’s what makes this cake–the delicate and exquisite rose flavor of the whipped cream kissed with the addition of vanilla caviar making it taste all the more heavenly. Then pair that with the deep chocolate and spices and  wow, its an incredible treat.  Enjoy this with your lover or your loved one’s!

The cake is a recipe I adapted from a Real Simple food recipe–adding to it a kick of warming spices that harmonize with the cocoa, and of course, home made vanilla extract.
