Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake--I'M IN HEAVEN!!

Oh my word, I just had my 1st piece of a flourless chocolate truffle cake....all I can say is HEA-VEN!! DElicious!! It literally metls in your mouth!! Just kinda melts away to little drops of chocolate heaven!! icon_biggrin.gif

Was for our monthly bday at work and someone can't have wheat, so I made her a small 6" flourless chocolate truffle cake (from WBH book)......and since I've never had one...I went ahead and tried a piece!! I did it w/3layers and iced and filled w/Raspberry Ital. Merng. and topped off w/chocolate glaze and chocolate shavings!!!

OMG IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD!! And this poor cake......since it was only 6" there was only enough for about 8-9 people (entire cake was for 30)....and after the cake was cut...there about 10 people sitting around the cakeboard w/forks picking at the crumbs left!! Was an interesting site!!

But anyway....this is my new favorite cake!! Just thought I'd share w/everyone how AWESOMELY GOOD this cake was!! And I think anyone and everyone who LOVES chocolate...should def. try one of these!! thumbs_up.gif

I've been eyeing this recipe and wanting to make it. I think now that I HAVE to!! Thanks for the review.
The chocolate butter cake in the WBH book is VERY great also.

I have made that cake recipe also. I covered it in choc Ganache. Having used expensive chocolate, It was probably about $20 just in ingredients.

Dang, that is good cake, My BIL just discovered it also. I baked it for dessert when we had company--1 extra person for dinner. I don't even know if I would do this cake for a customer, unless Kosher for passover. It's too good for kids, that's for sure. That pretty much leaves me and my sweet husband. And we do deserve it!!!!!

Flourless chocolate cakes and sachertortes are my favorites. I was never a big fan of German or Devil's food chocolate cakes, miles away in difference to a flourless.

Yum!!!

Here is the recipe for Truffle Cake from The Whimsical Bakehouse:

Melt in a double boiler:
8oz. unsalted butter
6oz. semi-sweet chocolate
6oz. unsweetened chocolate
Stir until melted and let cool 5-10 minutes

Beat with whisk attatchment until ribbon stage:
5 large eggs
1/2c sugar
2t vanilla extract

Meanwhile in a small saucepan, bring to a boil:
1/2c sugar
1/3c light corn syrup

Remove sugar mixture from heat and pour into the eggs with mixer on low. Then beat on medium speed until the batter reaches the top of the bowl, about 8 minutes. Reduce speed to low and add half of the chocolate mixture. Before it is fully incorporated remove whisk attatchment and fold the remaining chocolate in by hand.

Pour batter into the pan. Place pan in a larger pan and fill halfway with hot water. Bake for 40 minutes.

It says when served warm the texture has a light silky-smooth feel and is much different when served chilled.

Thank You for posting the recipe. I have a child that is on a gluten free diet. Which means no flour. I make about two to five cakes a week and he always tries to eat the parts I cut off. Now I'll have a good recipe for him.
