This is definitely a more adult chocolate cake than most that I make as evidenced by my mini-chocoholic taking one bit and pushing the rest away. It uses at least 70% dark chocolate and just a little bit of added sugar. It's also gluten-free which made it perfect for delivering as part of holiday "cookie" boxes. I could definitely taste the rosemary, but it was not overpowering, and most people couldn't identify the taste.
The recipe made 24 little muffin sized tortes, and each mini muffin was exactly the right size for this rich, deep cake. I imagine if you wanted to something a little sweeter, you could use a less intense chocolate and still have the recipe work.
