Flourless Chocolate Cake

Jennalynn Mar 29, 2007 03:38 PM

I'm thinking about making a flourless chocolate cake for Passover this year.

I'm not concerned with the milk/meat issue (neither are my guests), so dairy is fine.

I've found some good recipes on Epicurious, they're all similar.

What I'm wondering is, how long in advance can I make this and serve it Monday night?

    I will be making mine on Sunday but it will definitely be fine if you make it on Saturday.

      Great question Jennalynn! I'll be making one too and was wondering the same thing. I'm also making macaroons (almond), a walnut cake and a citrus sponge cake. I'm planning to bake all on Sat.

        Since you don't mind dairy, have a look at Julia Child's Eminence Brune (I think that's the spelling - my French is non-existent). There's not a whole lot in there except tons of chocolate and butter and then some more for the ganache. The texture is beautifully smooth, not like a pudding, but fine-crumbed, and if you use high quality chocolate the taste is amazing. The major drawback is the cost of the ingredients but this is a case of garbage in, garbage out.

        This one is my first choice dairy Passover go-to cake.
