Intensely Chocolate Cake

March 11, 2010 matkonation 3 Comments

This is a cake for outright chocoholics- those people who need their chocolate fix. This cake has no flour, but a nice helping of dark chocolate (14 oz.) which makes it a type of chocolate mousse turned cake. The mousse is baked using a water bath (ban marie), giving the cake its fudgy texture. Just please do me a favor- this cake deserves good quality chocolate- use dark chocolate with at least 60% cacao- otherwise it may not do the job for serious chocoholics.

Ingredients for 8″ round cake pan:

14 oz. dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

6 eggs

⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, Triple sec or Grand Marnier

½ cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line the cake pan with parchment paper and grease with oil spray (both the edges of the pan and the paper). Wrap the outside of the cake pan with aluminum foil ( preventing water from getting in during baking in ban marie).
  3. Using a microwave or a ban marie (water bath over stove), melt the chocolate until smooth. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Using a mixer, whisk together the eggs, sugar, salt and orange liqueur for about 5 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy. Fold in the melted chocolate until incorporated.
  5. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until firm and fold it into the chocolate batter. Evenly pour into the cake pan.
  6. Place the cake pan into a larger oven-proof dish and carefully pour hot water into the dish, until it reaches about half the height of the cake pan. Be very careful that water does not get into the cake pan.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until the cake is stable (not jiggly). Remove from oven and allow to chill until room temperature. Can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  1. Hi, I tried this cake recipe few hours ago but somehow couldn’t achieve the same result as you, my cake really wasn’t looking that good (but tasted fine). What kind of chocolate are you using? Maybe it’s coming from the flour I used, I have a gluten intolerance so I used millet flour instead of regular wheat flour.

      Hi Estefana,

      The recipes listed on this site wont work if you substitute millet flour for regular flour. There are some great sites out there for gluten free baking.

    There are so many distractions. This is especially true when you are at home. If you work at home, it is easy to get distracted by the TV, the kids, the warm sunny day calling your name. Sometimes I find it hard to concentrate when I am working at home. I guess I should just be happy that I do have the opportunity to work from home. I still have nightmares from those days of punching a time clock. Don’t get me wrong. Making a living from home is no piece of cake. You often have to work a crazy number of hours before you can find any success. I wish that I had of just started with the current program that I am on 12 years ago when I first got started. I wouold have probably been able to retire several years ago. Right now I am a reseller for a marketing software that allows just about anybody to be able to make a living from home. Actually, you can make a ton of money by reselling the software like I do. The company offers the 1-Up compensation plan which means that when you sell the software to someone else, you get paid $300. When they then sell the software to someone else, you get paid another $300. It just keeps going on down the line like that to infinity. Hypothetically, if each person in that downline just sold the software once, you could make a million dollars just from that first sale. It really is pretty incredible. The best part about it is the fact that anyone can get started in it because as a new member, when you join through the cash411 downline team, you will be given thousands of dollars worth of instructions, tools and individual mentoring. I would highly suggest that anyone who is truly interested in changing their tax brack go and at least give this a look. -> http://cash411.info/gopro
