Hang in there, Chocoholic friends!
I have got what you need…
Pain no more, just go over to the stove and start melting some chocolate… You can also lick the bowl!
This is the ultimate chocolate fudge cake for me: flourless, creamy, opulent and unapologetically chocolatey.
And you don’t even have to turn your oven on.
Where’s the catch?
It is seriously, scarily addictive…
You have been warned…
Ingredients, serves 6-8
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
3 tablespoons of soft butter
2 tablespoons of espresso coffee
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla paste or extract
1 tablespoon of Galliano or Rum
250 gr (8 oz) of Mascarpone
2 handfuls of walnuts
Add the sugar, coffee, cocoa, liquor and vanilla and mix well, until all th ingredients are combined.
Add the marscarpone and , either by hand or with electric beaters, cream it into the chocolate mix. Be careful not to whip it too much or it may split:
1 minute on low using electric beater and a couple of minutes by hand should do.
Dry roast the walnuts in a frying pan over low heat fopr 1-2 minutes or until they smell fragrant.
Cool for a couple of minutes, then incorporate them into the fudgie mix.
Line a round, small cake tin with plastic warp, leaving some to over hang.
Pour the batter into the tin and flatten with the back of a spoon.
Lick the spoon clean then fold the over hanging plastic wrap over the top of the fudge to enclose it securely.
Leave to the fridge to set for 4-6 hours.
Take the cake out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving.
Turn in onto a serving dish, dust it liberally with cocoa powder and serve wedges with fresh berries.
You are about to experience utter bliss…
