    I absolutely love this dessert. The cake was perfect and very chocolately - I've made and eaten similar cakes in the past...this one is great...I left it soft in the centre. The Margarita cream is quite spectacular. I had everything on hand to make this dessert...just had to pick up some whipping cream (heavy cream). My 19-year old Mexican houseguests loved it as much as us older folks. Will be making this again.

    A lovely dessert. The cake itself is a fairly standard flourless chocolate cake - the lime was not noticeable (I wish recipes with limes would list zest and juice quantities as they vary so much in size). But with the margarita cream this is great. A good gluten-free dessert to have in your back pocket - and handy as I always have these ingredients in stock.

    8.13 Definitely a dessert cake - the lime adds a different taste - Would definitely like to try the cream if serving for dessert w icecream also.

    Squidgy, chocolately, limey and very easy to make. I didn't bother making the accompanying margarita cream as I don't normally drink tequila and didn't feel it was worth buying a bottle for one tablespoon or so. It went very well with vanilla-flavoured double cream however. Perfect for entertaining a gluten-free friend.
