Simple Flourless Chocolate and Chestnut Truffle Cake With Fresh
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is absolutely DIVINE! The texture is smooth and somewhere between a chocolate cake a chocolate truffle. If you love chocolate, you'll love this as its just out of this world. A good substitute for those who don't like Christmas pudding, though I bet everyone will go off Christmas pudding once they taste this! Double or Triple the quantities for a larger party, a small slice is usually enough as its very rich. The brandy is optional and comes through more as a subtle flavour than anything else but feel free to add more to the cream if you prefer a stronger flavour (I do). If I make this during the summer I would leave out the brandy. Also this cake needs to be made at least a day in advance and it freezes well too.
