Chocolate Truffle Cake

Of all the chocolate cakes I have made - and I have made quite a few - this is our favourite chocolate cake. Which is why I am quite surprised that I haven't posted this one before!


But wait, there is a good reason for it - you see, I've never been able to click any pictures for this cake. No one has the patience for pictures to be clicked. The moment the frosting is on the cake, it has to be cut and eaten.


Even this time, I had just 3 'neat' slices to click pictures of. And just take a look at what my daughter resorted to while I tried to set the plates for the pictures:






Does this give you an idea of how good this cake is?! Yes, this cake is really that good. Even if I have to say it myself. So good that even you would want to lick your fingers and the plate long after the last crumb is devoured. Very very chocolately, soft and moist....what more could you possibly want from a chocolate cake?
















Perfect entry, I think, for the 'Best Chocolate Cake' event hosted by Divya!

Edited to add...My apologies to all who land on this page and don't find a recipe. Please email me for the recipe.

  5. I can eat chocolate cake even after I am totally full, that's how much I like it. I am still learning to bake, so it will take time to get to your stage. But, I have a question, I do not need eggs and I know people substitute it with milk. Do you have any idea about the measurements?

  25. What gorgeous pics! Cake looks divine! Any substitute for blackberry or blueberry jam? We dont find these jam's so easily in india..hence asked.

  26. Thank you ladies, do let me know how it turns out when you make it.

    Nithya, just add 2 tsps of baking powder to 250 gms of plain flour. Never done this before but hope it works for you.

    Priya, I have never substituted eggs with milk but Google says 250 ml milk for every egg.

    Parita, I am guessing strawberry jam (seedless) should be perfect. The original recipe called for blackberry, I used blueberry and it was perfect, so I guess so would strawberry, or for that matter any seedless berry jam.

  27. Have you sent this entry to my mail yet??

  28. Ooohhh, I love how PERFECT your frosting looks. I made a truffle cake too for my birthday last year, and was perplexed as to what the "truffle" part meant (thinking truffles as in mushrooms) until Simran of Bombay Foodie set me straight.

    The jam is an interesting touch!

  31. This looks incredible......mmmmm I love chocolate cake!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't blame her! I love a good chocolate cake, but hardly ever bother with new recipes because they're all somewhat me too. I have never seen a choc cake recipe with jam in it. Can you taste the jam? I've got to try this!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your daughter has done justice:). I can't keep my eyes off it. The one on the header is as good! Both the cakes are absolutely fudgy:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ann, I on the other hand, always thought of truffles as chocolates for a longggg time :)

    Dee, no, you can't taste the jam at all!

    SM, curry Leaf, actually I was quite kicked seeing her do that!

    Aparna, Chef Dennis, Pierre, thanks for visiting and your lovely comments.

  36. Hi Aqua......I'm not someone who comments or posts on anyone's wall....but I JUST HAD TO now. I'm someone who loves baking but started doing so only in the past few months thanks to a welcome sabbatical from the rigors of corporate life :-) I just made this chocolate truffle cake of yours and....yes......my kids practically demolished a pan of the cake before it even cooled properly........THANK YOU for sharing it :-)

  37. hi. can I substitute butter with
    vegetable oil?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi liha, I have never used veg oil for this cake, but here's what you could do: beat the sugar and eggs firts till light and fluffy and tripled in volume. Then with the beaters still running, pour in the oil in a thin stream into the beaten eggs. Beat till properly combined and proceed with the recipe.

    Look forward to hearing how it works.
