This cake is for the real chocolate lovers amongst you. It is best when made one or two days in advance of serving it.
Prep time: 15 minutes Baking time: 45 minutes
7 ounces semi sweet pareve chocolate
½ cup very strong coffee
1 cup sugar
1 cup non-dairy margarine- soft
8” spring form pan
non-dairy baking spray
1. Preheat oven to: 350 F. Spray and flour baking pan. Wrap foil around bottom
one inch of the pan. Set aside.
2. Beat margarine and sugar together in bowl of mixer.
3. Place chocolate and ¼ cup coffee together in microwave safe bowl. Place in
microwave and heat for 2 ½ -3 minutes or until you can stir the coffee and
chocolate together and they are completely smooth. Add remaining 1/4 cup
coffee and stir again. Let chocolate cool for 5 minutes.
4. Add eggs, one at a time, to margarine and sugar. Beat well after each
addition. Add chocolate mixture and beat again until all ingredients are well
blended. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes. The top will rise
and separate from the rest of the cake. Remove cake from the oven and cool
on rack. The top will fall after some time out of the oven. When the cake has
completely cooled, unsnap spring form pan and push the bottom through the
ring. The cake is so moist that I don’t even try to take it off the bottom of the
pan. I put it on a beautiful serving platter and surround it with berries.
This is a relatively flat, moist dense cake that packs a lot of flavor. Serve
small slices. It is very rich.
