      Amazing! This is technically more like a giant chocolate truffle than a cake. I did add 30 ml sugar as my chocolate was of a bitter kind. I also added some orange extract, just for fun. Mine didn't form any sauce, by the way, but was nice and firm as a truffle. No whipped cream for us, thank you, rich enough without it. Fresh fruit or berries might be nicer alongside.

      Made this as a gift (well, most of it anyway!) for a neighbor couple since they do love their chocolate & their alcohol! I hesitate to acknowledge it as a cake, but then, it certainly is something different! If I'd have kept it here at home, I'd have eaten most of it by the spoonful (LARGE spoonful, at that)! This is definitely an unusual something that would go well on my finger food counter that I set out a couple of times a month when I host groups! Thanks for sharing it!
