Recipe Comments & Reviews

Made this for company and were they ever impressed. I added a dab of whipped cream then the fresh raspberries on top and it looked so professional like we were dining out in a fine restaurant. Since there was left overs the next night we invited another couple over and it was as good as the first night.
This is easy enough for a novice and tastes like it was made by a pro. I'm too busy to waste time on so-so recipes, but I'm making this one again tonight. It's a keeper! The sauce is worth the extra effort.
I would love to bake this for valentines day. I have a question about the ground almonds. Do you measure the nuts before you grind them or after? Hope someone knows the answer. Thanks!
Scrumptious!! This recipe is delicious,a chocolate lovers delight! I made it with a strawberry sauce,and will definitely make it again.
