This is going to be short, sweet, and simple and to the point. Here goes. If you are a “chocoholic”, this is the cake for you. And I really, really mean this is for you. It is so rich and luscious; it will leave you with wanting more. You will be glad you read this blog if you make this because everyone will love you. This is a very easy recipe to make and it will make your friends wonder what culinary school you attended. If you decorate and garnish it with candied flowers and whipped cream, it will present spectacularly. This cake will look so elegant not to mention tasting delicious. If any one of my friends wants a real, over the edge, chocolate dessert, this is the one I make. I actually call this a flourless cake, but the recipe doesn’t say this.

Ingredients
Servings: cake
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 10” springform pan.
  2. In heavy 3-qt saucepan over low heat, heat semisweet chocolate, butter, sugar, half-and-half, vanilla extract, and salt, stirring frequently, until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
  3. In large bowl, with wire whisk or fork, beat eggs slightly; slowly beat warm chocolate mixture into eggs until well blended.
  4. Pour batter into springform pan so that it spreads evenly.
  5. Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake 2 inches from edge comes out clean. Cool cake completely in pan on wire rack.
  6. When cake is cool, carefully remove side of pan; wrap cake, still on pan bottom, in plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 6 hours.
  7. Prepare Chocolate Glaze
  8. Unwrap cake; remove from pan bottom. Line cane plate with waxed-paper strips. Place cake on plate and spread with warm glaze. Discard waxed paper.
  9. In small bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat heavy or whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Spoon whipped cream into decorating bag with medium star tube and pipe cream around top edge of cake. Refrigerate cake if not serving right away.
  10. **If you have candied violet (they probably have them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby), add them to sporadically to the top of whipped cream.
Chocolate glaze
