This is my go to dessert recipe for Baby Jesus' birthday cake - a family tradition! My family like it so much that most request this for their birthday cake as well!
Turns out great every time. So delicious and easy!
This recipe is perfect, my most successful attempt at a flourless cake yet. I didn't use the glaze because the birthday girl I made this for requested mousse on top, which worked beautifully. However I've made this type of glaze before and know it would be wonderful on the cake. I have to say that I always find it irritating (but somewhat amusing) when someone rates and reviews a recipe badly, when clearly the issue is that they made a mistake somehow, or simply have tastes that differ from the majority of people who tried it. This cake was smooth, easy and delicious and perfectly sweetened. This will be my go-to recipe from now on. Thank you!
Wow this was absolutely terrible!!!! I cannot believe all these nonsense good reviews. It did not taste anything like "chocolate cheesecake" let alone like chocolate! Maybe if it was made with milk chocolate or dark chocolate but with bittersweet throughout and glazed with crap butter. It honestly tasted like chalk. So disappointed.
This cake was really good and pretty easy to make. The eggs took longer to whip than stated, but I knew what to look for. If I made it again, I think I would cut back on sugar. I think I would like it darker. My friends and husband really liked it, but also thought it was sweet.
For years my go-to-dessert for special occasions and a huge hit with everyone. Simple to make and turns out beautifully every time, though I do need to bake it an extra 10 minutes or so to get the right "wet with gooey clumps" look when tooth pick tested. I serve it drizzled with raspberry coulis, a few fresh raspberries and a scoop of French vanilla ice-cream on the side. Definitely not low-cal, but a wickedly delicious pleasure every time!
Great cake and easy to make!!!
A good gluten free recipe to have on hand!
I think that the oz. for butter on not correct. Could someone check on this?
I made this cake for my Grandpa who is Gluten Free. He LOVES it & we all do too! It has the most fudgy moist texture once it has been in the fridge!! One piece is not enough! Absolutely delectable!! This ones a winner!
Excellent, though I preferred it slightly warm to cold. I skipped the glaze and didn't miss it.
This was fantastic, every time I made it. Everyone is in love with it. Easy and quick to make! I did not make the glaze but sprinkled the top with confectioners sugar = a little less calories? Once I was without vanilla extract, hard to get in Austria, so substituted a package of vanilla sugar which didn't change anything in the taste.
This is a marvelous cake. Plus it's gluten-free! As a confirmed chocoholic and life long baker, this is the best for a craving. I add ground espresso to the cocoa and this adds a bit more depth and keeps it from being too sweet.
I didn't have good luck with this recipe. I followed it exactly but I couldn't get the cake to set. After the recommended cooking time the middle was still completely liquid so I cooked it for another 15 minutes and still never got it to set to more than the consistency of a thick pudding. It still tasted great but it was totally unpresentable. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong?
Excellent chocolate cake! I wouldn't bake it more than 35-40 minutes max, and let it sit at room temperature a bit before serving. I didn't use the chocolate glaze on top, instead I opted for a ganache frosting. Delicious!
Nice cake. Very rich already with out the glaze.
Very good - liked it better without the glaze.
Everyone I've made this cake for LOVES it.
This recipe is fantastic. I made it for my husbands birthday and got rave reviews. I was told it tastes like a cake from a five star resteraunt. It's definitely a cake for your chocolate fix.
