White Truffle Cake

How about something sweet ?? It has been a while since I had posted a dessert recipe. The other day, D was going through a recipe book and shortlisted 3 chocolate based recipes for me. After going through the first choice, I decided to try that as I had all the ingredients in stock...well almost all

Ingredients
  

For the Base

  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 tablespoons Caster sugar
  • 5 - 1/2 tablespoons Plain flour
  • 50 gms Chocolate Melted white

For the Truffle topping

  • 300 ml Cream Double - (I used amul )
  • 300 gms Chocolate Chopped white
  • 250 gms Quark fromage or frais - (I used homemade paneer)

For decoration

  • 2 tablespoons Chocolate Chopped

Instructions
 

  • Grease 8" round spring form pan.
  • Preheat oven at 180 C.
  • Whisk eggs and caster sugar in a bowl until very light and foamy and the whisk leaves a trail that lasts a few seconds when lifted.
  • Sift the flour and fold in with a spoon.
  • Fold in the melted chocolate and ensure that the whole mixture is well incorporated.
  • Pour into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until springy to touch.
  • Leave to cool for a while and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Return the cold cake to the tin.
  • Place the cream in a saucepan and bring to boil, stirring continuously.
  • Cool slightly and add the chopped chocolate and stir till the chocolate is melted and well combined.
  • Stir in the Quark or fromage frais.
  • If using cottage cheese, blitz it in a blender to get a smooth paste and add into the chocolate mixture.
  • Pour this mixture on top of the cool cake.
  • Chill in the refrigerator till it sets completely.
  • For the decoration, melt the chocolate in a double boiler and tip into a piping bag.
  • Drizzle onto a parchment paper to form a design of your choice and let cool to set.
  • Once set, carefully slide off these designs, without breaking, using a spatula or knife.
  • Decorate the Truffle cake the way you want :) .
