the whole house smells of chocolate

"suzy's cake", the first recipe from pierre herme's chocolate desserts book. this is the most decadent, richest chocolate cake i have ever tried baked..

500 grams. yes 500 grams of 72% dark chocolate. (HALF A KILO). no cocoa powder thanks!


8 eggs.. and LOTS of butter. a mousse-like thick batter results.


27 minutes in the oven and voila.


lindt chili-dark chocolate ganache for the filling.


perfect, rich, dense chocolate cake with creamy fudge-like texture.


served with herme's vanilla bean creme anglais.. this cake is devilishly heavenly!

i'm going to wrap up this post with some bonus pics taken from my garden:
