Help me un-ruin a flourless chocolate cake!
Hi everyone. I made a flourless chocolate cake tonight but it is overcooked. I think I didn't use enough water in the water bath, but that is irrelevant at this point. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how I might salvage it? I was thinking of making a blackberry sauce and then making small holes with a toothpick and letting the sauce moisten the cake, but any other suggestions would be most welcome.....
You could also poke and pour sweetened condensed milk or sweetened evaporated milk over as a soaking syrup like a Tres Leches cake.
Or, break into pieces, and layer for a trifle. Sprinkle cake pieces with kahlua or Bailey's or coffee; layer with custard, jam if you like and toffee or white choc or dark choc bits; lather, rinse, repeat. top with whipped cream.
Or cut into squares, soak in a bit of a simple syrup, then coat in a batter and fry :)
