Chocolate Truffle Cake

"This is a very rich moist chocolate cake. I have made it many times. It is the last birthday cake my father requested before he passed away in 1999. I think it is a Bakers Chocolate recipe"

  1. Being a self-confessed choc-aholic, I have made this dark, decadantly divine dessert many times. If it's made with's got to be good!
  2. Wow! This is divinely chocolate! Wonderful! My springform pan was a 10 inch so I multiplied the recipe by 1.25 and it worked out perfectly. I didn't do the garnish because I'm not that great at circles (shhh, I'm not telling anyone it was supposed to have one). Everyone said it was definitely a 5, no questions! Thanks for posting.


I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I have been cooking for 45 years and it is still my passion. I am married to a chef. My oldest son is also a chef. All my kids are major foodies. We really enjoy getting together for family holidays etc. And it is always all about the food and love & laughter. The baby in the icon is my 4 year old grandson, Oliver. The pic is me on my 59th b'day, my husband gave me those gorgeous pearls and we had a great evening. I also must mention the other lover in my life the very hairy, extemely beautiful, totally black cat named Spike; actually he is afraid of his own shadow so we gave him a tough guy name. One of my sons was a soldier in the Canadian military. I pray for all of our children who so bravely defend our way of life. I try to do something kind everyday. It really is nice to be nice. I detest pettiness, two faced people and dishonesty. I try to treat everyone I touch with the same respect I would like. Also I try not to sweat the small stuff. This is pretty much my survival philosophy. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
