Audrey Hepburn’s Flourless Chocolate cake

Chocolate has always had a special place in Audrey Hepburn’s kitchen. Despite the dancer’s orderliness, there was always a box of chocolates in the house, at an accessible place. Despite protests from her chef, Joanna, Audrey used to make the flourless chocolate cake herself. It was the family’s favorite dessert, an unchangeable sweet for birthdays and holidays.
Follow the recipe and prepare the softest chocolate cake.

You will need:
