Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
Edible - just - if you like very bitter chocolate. Although this was layered four times with a chocolate glaze - again 70% cocoa chocolate - and cream and strawberry coulis, and despite the chocolate aficionados assurance that 70% cocoa chocolate is the ONLY chocolate - our family of milk chocolate lovers (about 33% cocoa) found this so bitter as to be virtually inedible. We even took pity on the dog and didn't feed it to him! On re-looking at the menu as I'm writing this recipe, maybe by semisweet you mean 50% cocoa chocolate? Here in Oz we don't talk about semi-sweet chocolate. This was to be my daughter's birthday cake; she wanted a flourless chocolate cake and I'm just glad that I made a trial version. I suspect the main issue is that we just are a family that doesn't like bitter chocolate. I'm glad everyone else seemed to enjoy it ;)
