Because it sounded like a great rainy day idea!

Raining Chocolate

It is a wet day here in central Kentucky and although it may not be actually raining chocolate, heavy raindrops have been falling since early this morning.  So, what better way to celebrate a cool, rainy day indoors, but with chocolate?!  

Creamy, decadent chocolate at that.  The following recipe is for a flour less chocolate cake that is creamy and rich with chocolate flavor.  

The first thing you shall need is one, 8-inch pan.  I chose to use a spring form pan because I am like that.  Make sure you have an old school Snoopy ruler on hand to check the diameter of said pan. 

Grease this pan and give it a liberal dusting with cocoa powder.  

Next, using a double boiler, melt 1/2 cup of butter and 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate.  Butter and chocolate.....a beautiful thing. 

Mix the melted chocolate/butter combo with 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 3 eggs (beaten), and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Mix well and then pour into your prepared pan.  It should look like this.  All of this chocolaty goodness calls for a moment of silence.....

Bake that fantastic pan in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes. 

Allow the cake to cool and then slice it, plate it, and cover it with caramel and pecans.  

Just the right treat for a rainy Sunday afternoon and a nice gluten-free item for your Thanksgiving table.

Make it, eat it, enjoy it, and that's an order
