French Chocolate Cake

At least that's the title of the New York Times a note in his journal on Sunday, which found S., titled "vintage pastry," and I could not make it stop!

It is true that column analysis of this type of cakes: concetrada, moist, decadent flourless, have become fashionable in the menus of the restaurants in the last decades. First there was the volcano version: tibia and heart still liquid, but more recently, in many letters, especially of small bistros and delis, it appears this version, usually under the name chocolate moist cake.

Perhaps the change is because the volcano is more complicated preparation to serve lunch, dinner or brunch fast, which for good food but not so many pretensions. You can also succeed the fact that many current diseases prohibit the consumption of gluten, and this type of cake has no flour, or the little that has replaceable or avoidable.

But better analysis I leave to those who know, like this journalist, who discusses the new versions of these preparations in modern menus to highlight the date of publication of this recipe: 1969.
In conclusion: it will be a dessert century, but it is time to enjoy!

The original recipe is accompanied with whipped cream, the restaurants usually comes with ice cream, but this time we ate alone, in small portions, at the time of the meal, with coffee / tea. The chocolate flavor stands out and has absolute leadership in this small piece without accompaniment. But yes, for dessert would be much eat alone.

Another thing: not to overeat, I just made ​​half the recipe and cook in a smaller pan.
I passed the recipe original, to decide which type you want to binge!

I take this festive recipe type (is that chocolate makes us think of holiday preparations?) To thank you all / as to follow me! Here we are at 100!
