Hi. I made the Nutella Cheesecake but tried adding a chunk of dark chocolate along with the Nutella mixture. I have used an ounce of butter to melt the chocolate. Will the cheesecake would be fine despite the butter? Should I freeze it overnight?

Hi, I have made Nigella's Molten Chocolate Baby Cakes many times and they are always a crowd pleaser. One of my friends has recently discovered she has a gluten intolerance and I was wondering, given how little flour is used, if it would be possible to substitute the flour in the recipe for almond meal (and maybe some baking powder)? Thanks, Ash.
