Moist, dense and chocolatey describes this rich cake. A silky chocolate ganache infused with rosemary really takes this dessert over the top.—Kelly Gardner, Alton, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • GANACHE:
  • 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs

Directions

Line the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan with parchment paper; grease the paper. Place on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pan; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate, butter and wine over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until frothy and doubled in volume, about 5 minutes. Fold in chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared pan. Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
Bake at 350° for 28-32 minutes or until outer edges are set (center will jiggle). Remove springform pan from water bath. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides of pan. Transfer to a serving platter.
Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and rosemary just to a boil. Remove from the heat; discard rosemary. Pour cream over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Pour over cake. Chill until set. Yield: 16 servings.
To Make Ahead: Cake can be made a day in advance. Cover and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before serving.

"Wow! This cake was great and I wouldn't have thought it could get any better until the rosemary ganache was added. This is a must try!"
