Hmmmm, this flour-less cake is very very yummy, it was so chocolaty and smooth; I loved the orange flavor from Grand Marnier, and I also added extra orange zest from two oranges, and I used fresh orange juice. Brewed and strong coffee gave the cake body. The cake turned out more like a mousse. Definitely, a delicious dessert that will be a hit at a party or when you have company to come over.
