Arm Yourself, With Chocolate!

Throwing caution to the wind, flouting all blogging conventions, I will write about cake and zombies, in the same post! Watching a certain televised Walking-Zombies-Not-Quite-Dead program has become a fairly regular event here, but in the last few months the unwatched episodes have been accumulating, so the guys called an emergency marathon viewing weekend. The first installment happened last night, and though they quit at 2 am, they are only half way through.

There are only two reasons you would come to our place tonight: 1. to get creeped out, grossed out, and freaked out, and squee with the rest of the zombie devotees, or... 2. to try some of this flour-less chocolate cake William made!

William wanted a gluten-free dessert to serve to friends, and he hit upon this recipe. I thought he was brave trying, not only a new recipe but one with new techniques, too. In the end, it all came together, and it tastes as rich as it looks. Unfortunately, he didn't notice the last step called for the cake to be refrigerated overnight. It was not ready in time for last night's marathon zombie event, but I am pretty sure there will be plenty left for tonight.

Maria and I will be upstairs, tucked in safely with books, flashlights, lofty quilts, and pure, happy thoughts!

Chocolate goes with everything! I love that your boys cook & bake, You're raising some renaissance men :) Joe and I watch that show and found it quite gory in the beginning but either they toned down the sound effects in the later seasons or I've become desensitized because I don't notice it as much.

It looks delicious! Not nearly big enough for fear-eating that should take place on a zombie marathon though!

Small, but very, very dense. Honestly, I've had about a teaspoon, total, and even that was taken in doses! There's still some left. Any takers??
