Flourless Pecan Chocolate Cake, MOM’S CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE

When I first found out about this month’s challenge, chocolate cake, I was so disappointed. I was debating with myself, if I wanted to participate or not. Was it worth suffering though the chocolate cake for participation in a great challenge or not? I decided to endure the torture of making and then eating a chocolate cake!…..Any one buying this??  NO??? Oh well….

It really didn’t take me too long to find the cake I wanted to make. This recipe intrigues me right away and I made it that same night! I was very excited to try this unusual combination of flavors. Chocolate and cinnamon turned out to go perfectly together! I found this recipe at Fahrenheit 350. He blog makes me drool every time I visit it. She must know that I have a weakness for sweets because she just keeps posting the most wonderful desserts! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!!
