This is a recipe that I have had for a long time. It's a very rich cake, so if you bake it make sure you have plenty of people to share it with.
1 cup Unsalted butter, melted|
1 cup Dark Chocolate, broken
3/4 cup Superfine sugar
1 cup Hot espresso coffee or strong instant coffee
3/4 cup Self raising flour
2 Tb Cocoa powder
2 tsp Vanilla
Oven Temp ~ 375°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 9 inch cake pan
Mix the butter, sugar, chocolate and coffee in a food processor until well
blended; the sugar should be dissolved, the chocolate well melted, but it
doesn't matter if there are still a few solid chocolate pieces.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, vanilla and eggs, process until too smooth.
Put Too Rich Chocolate Cake batter into prepared cake pan and bake until done.
Serve Too Rich Chocolate Cake frugally, it is very rich. When serving as a dessert, the richness should be lightened with a fruit sauce. Rich chocolate cake may be served along with orange or raspberry flavored sorbet.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
