Or “La Bete Noire”.
Either language they both mean the same thing. And it’s a wonderfully super rich, super chocolatey flourless cake with a layer of ganache on top. I can’t even begin to describe how rich and yummy this cake is. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream dessert! It’s heaven for chocoholics. It’s chocolate overload, and that’s a great thing! (Is there such a thing?)
I made this for my church Life Group meeting this past Tuesday. In fact a couple of women thought I bought it. One of them didn’t believe I made it until she saw the pan. My other friend asked if Sara Lee and I made it. I’m going to take it as a compliment. Now I’m not going to say who these two women are but their names rhyme with Fam and Fecky.
This recipe is from Bon Appetite’s September issue. The cake was on the cover and I’ve been wanting to make it for awhile now. I’m glad I finally made. It’s an easy recipe and a dessert that everyone will love. You will need a springform pan though.
