Flourless Chocolate & Blood Orange Cake

We're celebrating love all this month and what better way than with a chocolate cake bursting with the sweet and bitter flavour of in season blood oranges.   These ruby coloured jewels pair perfectly with chocolate in a cake with just 6 ingredients and just for good measure, gluten free.  To infuse the orange flavour, the oranges are boiled until plump and ready to burst with goodness and then puréed in your food processor.
