For a long time, I kept this recipe to myself, even though it is published in Classic Home Desserts by Richard Sax. (A wonderful book that never fails me.) It is Chocolate Cloud Cake; it is so easy to make, but it seems like you've done something really amazing. Since I've now shared the secret many times, I thought I'd post it here.

I made this one for DD's birthday. The sides are a little more crumbly than usual-- I think because it was a very warm day when I sprung it from the pan. It is a flourless cake that puffs and then cracks. It sinks when it is cooling, making a deep well for the fresh whipped cream.

Anyway, it melts in your mouth and has been a favorite recipe for years.

I don't mind sharing, but I don't know about posting copyrighted recipes from a published book? What are the rules on that?

Problem solved. Thanks Icemama. That is the exact recipe. I never put in the orange peel, because it is too much bother for me. I use the Grand Marnier if I have it on hand, but the cake is always a hit without either.

Enjoy all.

This is the type of cake I've been making all week.  Your cake looks wonderful and moist.  For a flourless cake it came out wonderfully high and that "cloud" of whipped cream.  Extremely appealing!!  Thanks for sharing it.
