instant coffee granules
semisweet chocolate, chopped
heavy whipping cream
whole almonds, toasted
This tasted really good and it was a hit but I'm not sure if it turned out or not. The cake rose beautifully in the oven and about 15 minutes of cooling it fell. Is it supposed to do that? As good as it tasted I would make it again though.
This recipe is simple and should taste excellent, but I am not a big coffee/chocolate fan and this has a very strong coffee taste to it. Has anyone tried it without the coffee?
I think this recipe is absolutely delicious! My sister and brother and I all love this recipe.
Delicious and chocolaty cake. I used milk instead of water though. This cake rose quite a bit while it baked and then fell right back down. As per another reviewer's advice I made this cake a few days in advance of serving. The cake practically melted in my mouth. Delicious. Thanks.
I misread this recipe and only used 3 eggs! Due to this mistake, I have no idea what the texture is supposed to be like...mine came out like a cross between a mousse and ganache. Accordingly, it was somewhat difficult to slice and serve. I will use more eggs the next time I make it...but since another reviewer called it "eggy," I probably won't use all 8.
Despite my mistake, the end result was rich, decadent and had a heavenly flavor. The balance of chocolate to coffee was very nice. I will definitely make this again.
With a pound of chocolate as part of the recipe, how can it not be GREAT?!
Yummy. This was really good. Kind of a cross between a brownie and the inside of a truffle. Rich chocolaty goodness. I did use coffee instead of water, it didn't give it a coffee flavor just enhanced the chocolate. Just a little tip before you just dump the eggs into the hot chocolate mix take a little of the chocolate and beat it into the eggs to bring up the temp of the eggs so they don't scramble on you. I used a gravy ladle to add about 1/2 cup of the chocolate into the eggs. I topped with whipped cream and a berry sauce. Will definitely make this again.
Pretty awesome, and this from someone who doesn't like chocolate all that much... I made two tiny cakes- basically 1/4 the recipe, and that was enough chocolatly goodness to last me a month. To answer an earlier reviewer, my husband doesn't like coffee, so I left that out of the mix, only to find it VERY watery... so I kept adding powdered cocoa and a *little* flour, until I thought it was the right texture. I couldn't begin to tell you how much I added- just a little at a time, until it looked right. So yes, you can do without the coffee, and it tastes fabulous.
