    Mirj's Note:

    Chocolate, Cointreau, almonds, what more could you ask for in a dessert? I found this recipe in the New York Daily News, have adapted it to what makes me happy. I use soy milk and margarine so the recipe is not dairy at all, but you can use milk (or cream) and butter instead.

      Wonderfully fudgy, lightly flavored with orange and chocked full of almonds! I made this very easy recipe using butter and half and half. I decided to use my 9" springform pan and it worked very well with this cake. I would recommend this to serve for company as it makes a nice presentation dusted with powdered sugar. I would suggest serving with a little vanilla ice cream on the side. Thanks for the great chocolate high, Mirj :)
