I know I have waxed lyrical about this cake a few times already, and having made it again, it's still the best chocolate cake in my book. I baked it last week, this time doing what I did not do the last time, ie, adding coffee and using a slightly darker chocolate (Valrhona Caraïbe 66%). It turned out to be a more grown up version than the previous (I used Valrhona Equatoriale 55% for that one).
Oooh, it was amazing but I think I like the version made with Valrhona Equatoriale (and sans coffee) better. Maybe I am just a milk chocolate kinda girl, ya know? ;)
What I love about this cake is the insane intensity of chocolate that hits you from the first bite. And the moist, mousse-like centre? Heaven. All chocolate cakes should be like that!
Here's the recipe if you are keen to try ... and you MUST try! I know a good chocolate cake when I taste one, so trust me on this. ;) Happy baking!
