Flourless Chocolate Cake -- with complications
I'm looking for a recipe for a flourless chocolate cake that needs to meet some specific criteria:
1) no dairy (cream or butter). Eggs are okay.
2) no flour, buckwheat, or other grains, including alcohol.
3) needs to be made in the morning, and still taste good around 8:00 p.m.
4) It's gotta be delicious.
I'm open to the possibility that there may not be a recipe for flourless chocolate cake that meets all these criteria (kosher for passover, parave). If that's the case, any other ideas for deserts that meet these conditions, and that would go nicely with blackberry sorbet?
I wonder if you could replace the whipped cream in the Chocolate Valentine Cake from The Cake Book by Tish Boyle with a non-dairy whipped topping... That's the only ingredient in it that doesn't meet your qualifications :)
And it is delicious and kept very well in the fridge overnight and then in the freezer for a few days as well.
I have, and it is a great dessert, with a very sophisticated flavor that would go nicely with the sorbet (I have served it with fruit compote, and it works well), and though it is not an chocolate-through-and-through cake, it has good chocolate flavor. It is fine standing at room temp for a day or more.
Here is the recipe: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/20...
I like the lighter than air cake also. That link has 17 passover desserts. I make the chocolate idiot cake from David Lebovitz, you can use KFP margarine. It is the best passover dessert I have ever had.
You can also make a pavlova and fill it with the sorbet.
Here's a recipe I found by Googling : recipe kosher flourless cake.
I haven't made it but it sounds like it might work for you. It calls for ground almonds and a small amount of olive oil. She says it can be made a few days ahead.
