death by chocolate (but i lived to tell the story)

coffee and a slice of flourless chocolate cake at Kramer's in Dupont Circle


It got so warm in DC this weekend, it felt like a perfect spring day with joggers in shorts and birds in the trees again. I have missed having a real winter but goodness, i hope it stays this way! since it was so nice we stopped at Kramer's, our favorite cafe/local bookstore, for some browsing but ended up eating this flourless chocolate cake, otherwise known as 'Death by Chocolate.' soooo divine, soooo not part of my plan to lose weight...oops! At least we did a lot of walking around the city that day though. We ended up finding a great used bookstore up on 18th and walked home in the fading light of evening with our arms filled up with all that bookery-goodness! I even found a christmas present for someone!! yup, i am that person.

Besides the jaunting about, I made stew from scratch on Sunday evening which of course meant we had to pop in The Lord of the Rings; they just go together i tell you! I was also able to get a lot done this weekend work-wise. I'm very pleased with that as it means I'll have new items to post to the shop throughout the week: some new, some favorites, and some great vintage finds! So keep your eyes peeled! Or just open, that is also acceptable.

mmmm!!! We have celiac in our family, so some of us cannot eat wheat flour anymore. Its a bit of a drag. So this past Thanksgiving my cousin made a flour-less chocolate cake for us. It was so very yummy and so very rich, it was even better than fudge and easily better than a standard cake! She found her recipe online but added more baking chocolate to ensure chocolatey fantasticness... :)

i completely agree...way better than a standard cake, i mean why add flour when you can just add more chocolate?! and i'm so glad your family member can at least still enjoy chocolate! :)

That cake looks absolutely amazing! I've had a craving for some nice chocolate cake for weeks now - I am hoping that I shall finally get some this weekend. :) I hope you are enjoying the warm weather - we are having it here too and it is so nice to be able to stroll around outside without a coat and to open the windows!
