Think of this dessert as a moist devil’s food cake with a liqueur-enhanced glaze that takes it over the top. It’s deep and rich in color as well as chocolate flavor, thanks to a little espresso powder, which amplifies the taste of the cocoa. The almond notes in the glaze are delicious with the chocolate, but you could also use orange-flavored liqueur (such as Grand Marnier) or berry-flavored liqueur (such as Chambord) to suit your taste.
