V-Day Dessert: Guiltless Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake

After a healthy but scrumptious dinner of spicy scallops, Mediterranean couscous, and arugula salad, you'll have just enough room left for a chocolaty dessert that puts the sweet into Valentine's Day without ruining your healthy streak. Sure, dark chocolate-dipped strawberries are light and delicious, but it's always fun to try something a little more special for a romantic evening. Why not give this flourless chocolate cake a go?


As with any dessert featuring chocolate, make sure you get a good-quality bar and follow the recipe's orders to use one containing at least 70-percent dark chocolate. The texture of this cake is moist and slightly spongy, and the ramekins you bake them in give instant portion control. You can definitely taste the orange zest in the final product — I happen to love the flavor combination, but if you're not a fan of orange and chocolate simply leave the zest out. I halved my recipe to yield four desserts, so take note the full recipe is meant to serve eight.
