Flourless Chocolate Vanilla Marble Cake Recipe Changes


Flourless Chocolate Vanilla Marble Cake

Most of the time I focus on ways to find and enjoy fine chocolate but once in a while I throw in a recipe that really works.  This is one of those times.

A BIG thank you to Yifat Cohen for posting this recipe on her G+ post "HAPPY BIRTHDAY +Larry Fournillier" which is where I first found this recipe.  She said it was easy and she is right!

If you haven't followed Yifat yet check her out on G+.  She is the G+ Go to Gal posting valuable info about how to use G+ and Hangouts.

I made a few changes to the recipe:

  • Because I didn't want it to be too sweet I substituted about half of the semi sweet chocolate for 100%.
  • I was out of vanilla so I used a vanilla bean instead.
  • I was out of butter so I substituted coconut oil which gave the cake a subtle coconut flavor.

This cake was easy as well as dense, moist, and very much cheesecake like in texture, perhaps even a little firmer than cheesecake.  To top it off, the marble look is impressive.

I also doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan lined with parchment paper so it would be easy to transport to a family reunion and could be cut into small squares.
