Just one of the stake specials we did at the restaurant. Grilled flat iron, roasted garlic smashed potatoes, and prosciutto sealed asparagus.
My chef this week gave me the task of making the dessert special. I came up with a flour-less chocolate cake. Here is a picture of it plated in the restaurant.
The cake was super easy to make.
8 eggs (cold)
1/2 lb of butter
1 lb of bittersweet chocolate
Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler.
Whip eggs in mixer till they double in size.
Combine egg slowly to chocolate till all incorporated.
Line the bottom of a spring form with parchment and fill with mix.
Place pan in a hot water bath, and put on the middle rack of a 325 degree oven for 22 min.
Let cool in refrigerator for a few hours cut and serve with a scoop of raspberry sorbet.
You can also add a flavored liquor or expresso to change it up. Have fun with this recipe, and let me know how it works out for you.
