This recipe I found in the our newspaper. I wanted to have it in sooner but you know how thing's keep coming up? It does not use flour and it can be used for July 4th for a family member who can not have flour and likes cake and chocolate. It surprised me!
The newspaper called it a chocolatey confection between fudge and cake. How can you not want to try it? I am a choc-aholic I admit it. This also has strawberries on it. However if you are also allergic to strawberries try something else, fruit is all so good!
You will need a 9 inch springform pan. Spray with cooking spray or butter and cocoa. Shake off extra cocoa. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In one Bowl:
Beat butter until smooth. Add 1 cup sugar and beat until creamy. Add ground nuts, chocolate and egg yolks beat thoroughly.
In another bowl:
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Stir 1/3 of egg whites into chocolate mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites.
Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean.
Cool 30 minutes then release sides and slide onto serving plate.
Combine cream, vanilla and 2 Tbsp. sugar, beat until soft peaks form. Top cake with cream and strawberries. Enjoy!

My honey and I live a lo-carb lifestyle, can I use sweet and low as a sub for the sugar?
