La Bete Noire

Aptly coined “The Black Beast”, this cake more than lives up to its translation. It’s incredulous that something that requires so few ingredients and such easy preparation could be so insanely delectable.

I figured I couldn’t go wrong with a cake that has been positively reviewed by so many. Hence, it was without trepidation that I chose to make the ‘beast’ over the weekend for my aunt’s birthday. It seemed fitting since she and the rest of us are chocolate fiends.

To date, this is undoubtedly the richest chocolate cake I have ever made and is not to be trifled with. The texture is like pure chocolate ganache and a thin sliver was really all anyone could handle. Even the richest cheesecake would pale in comparison.

Funny thing is, everyone’s utterance on their first bite was, oh my gawwwwwd, which led me to believe it was a little too heavy for their palates. Alas, their plates licked clean said everything my little baker-heart wanted to hear, or see.
