Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate Armagnac Cake

by Jessica on March 3, 2009

This week’s TWD choice couldn’t have come at a better time. My parents celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary this past Sunday, so after a nice little dinner, we had this amazing cake for dessert. Thank goodness I gave up something other than sweets for Lent. 😉

Chocolate Armagnac

I had a pretty easy time putting all the ingredients together for this sweet little cake. I’m glad I didn’t chop the nuts as fine as Dorie suggested… the cake ended up tasting exactly like my grandmother’s chocolate cake (minus the cinnamon). 🙂 It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making this one again!!

I thought about giving up sweets for Lent, but I just didn’t think others would want to be around me. ;o) The cake looks fabulous!
