Chocolate Lover's Dream!, July 11, 2005 - 11:39 PM
Reviewer: Becky from Holcomb, Kansas
My husband and I stayed in an wonderful hotel in Denver, and the chef's signature dessert was a Chocolate Truffle Cake. Since he would not share his recipe, I have been searching and searching for a recipe that would be close, and I found it with this one. I had a hint from the waiter though. He told me it is "flourless." wow I couldn't believe it. It is an absolutely heavenly, melt-in-your mouth, creamy, decadent, chocolatey masterpiece! Simple to make. I used a 10" round pan for the recipe, and baked it in a 14" round cake pan half filled with water as the recipe suggests. (I used to make wedding cakes, so have all these pans) I also used jumbo size eggs. That is the secret to fantastic recipes. Don't mess around with dinky eggs. You'll be amazed what jumbo eggs can do with any recipe. The cake baked up beautiful and even - absolutely lovely. I envisioned pouring a glaze of reaspberries, strawberries or even orange would really top this off. A drizzle of any flavor of glaze across a pretty plate, a square of this cake and a dollop of whip cream with some curls of chocolate will amaze your company. Although the cake was perfect all by itself. Trust me, folks. I am a baking expert and this one will work for anyone. Try this one! Fantastic!!!
