Chef Kookabura found this recipe in response to a request from KrisLady. It is from Gourmet Magazine, September 1999. It sounds incredible and the ratings were good - three and a half forks (four being exceptional). Ginger cream topping tempers the intensity of the rich chocolate. UPDATE May 3, 2008: Sorry I have not updated this since the first time I made it (have made it several times since!). This cake is a wonderful palate teaser. The deep chocolate taste with the Anise and Clove flavors peaking through and then the creamy zip of the Ginger cream ... excellent. I used Scharffen Berger chocolate to get the deep chocolate flavor. I recommend this for an elegant dessert or a very special treat for coffee or tea with friends (when I use it for morning coffee, I make it the day before, refrigerate it, and take it out about two hours before serving time).
