COFFEE AND CHOCOLATE YUM

This recipe contains 2 of my favourite things… coffee and chocolate… the original recipe called for 1 egg but I found the mixture too dry, it also used almond butter, which I don’t particularly like, so my recipe uses tahini (sesame seed paste). In the pictured batch I used fine almond flour but you could use ground almonds (almond meal). You can increase the amount of coffee to your own taste.

This is a really moist gooey cake.
