I thought this cake was sensational! I've made many a flourless chocolate cake before, but this one - with the orange zest and orange juice in it - had an elusive flavor to it. I heard lots of raves from everyone who had a slice. I'll definitely make it again. I used orange juice concentrate (half with water) for the fresh orange juice. Gave it a little more snappy orange flavor. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. Also, I think this would likely serve more than 8 people - especially if you served it with some whipped cream as I did. I liked the cream as it cut the richness somehow.

Chocolate and orange is one of my favorite dessert combinations so I could not resist trying this gluten-free recipe. The end product is a light textured brownie due to the folded egg whites. I miss the dense brownie mouth feel, but I like the flavor combination.
