No-cook Chocolate Mascarpone Cake

No-cook Chocolate Mascarpone Cake created by GaylaJ

Had some mascarpone cheese left and didn't want to let it get so old that I would have to throw it away. Couldn't sleep and thought this "concoction" could be nice. Must say it was a success.

    This is awesome and really easy. The version I made is low carb and sugar free. I melted unsweetened chocolate on defrost in the microwave. I used ground almonds and a few tablespoons of splenda instead of the cookies, and Davinci German chocolate cake sugar free syrup instead of orange liqueur. I also used light mascapone. Oh my gosh this is really tasty - thank you for posting it!

    It would be hard to go wrong on flavor with these ingredients. Like you, I had some mascarpone I needed to use. I was excited to run across this simple recipe and fortunate enough to have all the ingredients on hand. Wonderful flavor, although I had a bit of a problem serving the slices without them breaking. I used a 2-cup loaf pan, as I wanted the cake a bit taller, and the quantity perfectly filled the pan. I used Grand Marnier for the orange liqueur, but with the amaretti, I would imagine an almond liqueur would be nice as well. Served it unadorned, as it was rich enough to stand on its own. :) And the previous reviewer was correct--went perfectly with a cup of freshly brewed espresso. Thanks for posting your original recipe!

    If you like strong coffee, this is the recipe to go for. No, there is no coffee in it, but IMHO this is best served with an espresso as the two go very well together. It's delicious and dead easy to make. Even tiger succeeded. He told me after I had tasted it that he had a few problems, though, but even with his problems, it was a success and he was very proud of it.
