Method

Cook and enjoy! This truffle cake tastes like candy of the same name. Incredible truffle cake is really like a truffle candy with the most delicate chocolate crème. This is something special, no exaggeration!

Cooking

  1. Melt the chocolate in a water bath. Whip the butter, sugar and cheese until fluffy white mass; add the eggs one at a time, and then add the cooled chocolate. Whip everything until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda and the baking powder.
  3. Next, alternately add the flour mixture and water to the cheese mass; whip everything well, and add the essence and the liquor.
  4. Mix, and pour the mass into 2 molds, covered with parchment; or wrap the rings for assembling the cake with foil, and fill them with dough.
  5. It turns out quite thick. Bake the sponge cake in the oven preheated to 180C (356F) for 25 to 30 minutes. Cut the finished cooled sponge biscuits in half.
  6. Grease them with the crème.
  7. For the crème, heat the cream, and pour it over the dark chocolate; add the butter.
  8. Mix everything until smooth. The crème is ready!

Cake assembling

The sponge biscuit layers can be soaked with a little cream. Cover them with the crème; you can add some ground dark chocolate for the crunch. After assembling, let the cake rest in the fridge overnight. And in the morning enjoy a piece of this amazing chocolate delight with a cup of espresso!

Bon Appetit!
