3. Chocolate Mud Cake

A deep dark chocolate cake is the perfect dessert to finish any special dinner with. This one is unique in that it doesn’t require flour to bind it and instead relies on ground almonds, which makes it gluten free but also results in a rich and moist finish. With a glossy chocolate glaze and a topping of toasted hazelnuts this cake will be a true showstopper no matter the occasion!
