Chocolate Decadence Cake

I love this cake. 

It’s not the easiest to bake and it does take a lot of eggs but the flavour and consistency of this dish is in its name: decadent. It’s the chocolate lovers dream.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups butter (melted)
  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar (divided)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 7 eggs
  • 2 cups whipped cream (optional for topping)
Directions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and grease a 10-inch cake pan – line the bottom with parchment (I skip this step)
  2. Chop chocolate squares and put in a bowl with chocolate chips.
  3. Melt butter and stir into chocolate.
  4. Heat water and 1 1/2 cup sugar on the stove until boiling and then pour mixture in with chocolate and stir until smooth
  5. Whip eggs with remaining 1/4 cup of sugar until thick. (If you don’t have a good mixer I recommend separating the yolks and whites and whipping them separately THEN adding them together with the sugar
  6. Fold whipped eggs into the chocolate mixture and pour into cake pan
  7. Place cake pan on a cookie sheet and fill cookie sheet with water – place in oven
  8. Bake for 40-50 minutes and be careful removing the water filled pan
  9. the top of the cake (or really the bottom) will rise up, harden and crack. I peel those chunks off before cooling.
  10. Cool and refrigerate for a few hours (or leave over night)
  11. Dip the pan into hot water to loosen and remove.

* Be patient. This recipe is a brownie lovers DREAM it tastes like a moist brownie; rich but not too sweet. Take your time and it will turn out beautifully *

  1. This looks amazing!!! Me and my mom are SERIOUS brownie lovers. I made a pan of brownies one evening and my mom and I sat there and ate ALL of them. They were gone within a few hours. We are awful when it comes to brownies. 😀
    This cake looks awesome! Maybe I will try it when I have a little more cooking experience. 😛

  2. This looks delicious! I know I have read this recipe before and thought the same thing, it just takes me forever to get around to actually trying them. Since your pb cups are such a hit (Ryan keeps bugging me to make more) I’m gonna give this one a go for our anniversary dinner :) I was thinking molten lava cakes but they look totally complicated and I’ve been out of the the baking game for a while, I’ll let you know how it goes! :)
