Truffle Cake with Candy Cane Cream
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
This was a pleasing dessert. We liked that it wasn't overly sweet although for one individual not overly fond of chocolate it was a bit much. I think it was decadent and could be served for a special occasion. It was fairly simple to make but tastes like you have serious skills to produce something this good.
This is a fairly simple dessert to prepare but guest will think it worthy of a pastry chef! I did a ganache drizzle on top instead of the candy cane cream as this had to sit out on the counter for a couple of hours. Best served at room temperature for optimum velvety smoothness!
Chocolate, what more can I say.
This rocked!!! It's rich but not heavy. I used the lesser amount of peppermint extract and it seemed perfect!!!! SO YUMMY all together!
Made this for Christmas, everyone loved it and asked for it agoin for New Years. I am going to try the ganache on top like chrissybr did. Great recipe!
This was so decadent and chocolately, we really enjoyed it on Christmas Day. The only thing different I did was chop up peppermint patties and added it to the chocolate. 5 stars indeed.
Very rich cake, but good flavor. Not too sweet. I couldn't eat an entire piece!
Luxurious taste, very easy to make!YUM!
Great recipe! My brother loves anything mint so I added about 3 teaspoons of the peppermint extract to the cake to make it more of a "minty dessert". It was great! My brother is already requesting it for his b-day in June!
My daughter made this for my dads birthday and my parents took it home, thats how much they liked it!
