Ann Peebles had it right

Its raining. I am always least productive when it rains. Rather than getting any work done, I play on the computer, watch DVDs and bake gluten free goodies.

Gluten Free Chocolate and Hazlenut cake

250 grams Gluten Free dark chocolate
125 grams butter
110 grams caster sugar
1/4 cup strong fresh coffee (add a flavoring e.g. vanilla essence/almond essence if you dont like coffee)
4 eggs separated
125 grams ground hazelnuts

Combine chocolate, butter, sugar & Coffee in saucepan and stir over LOW heat until dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in egg yolks and nuts. Whisk egg whites until firm and fold gently into chocolate mixture. Pour into a buttered 20cm baking pan. Bake for 1 hour (or until the skewer comes out clean) at 170C.

Enjoy! And go for a walk in the morning!
