Hey Y’all!

Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake

My cake fell … and it was fantastic! Actually, it was supposed to fall. It’s a recipe for a flourless chocolate cake that I used straight from the pages of Paula Deen’s Chocolate Celebration Magazine.

Paula Deen's Chocolate Celebration

I bought this publication several months ago mainly because of the cover… Chocolate and Paula… you can’t go wrong there. But, to be honest I haven’t made anything from it until this Saturday. I’ve looked at it a bunch of times and made notes of all the recipes I want to try, but nothing until now.

So, this weekend, I finally decided to go for her Deep Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake Recipe because I’ve never made a flourless cake before and I was intrigued.
I mean, it must be pretty good if someone would make it instead of the one on this cover.

Springform pan

You’ll need a 9-inch springform pan. It has a latch on the side that helps you release the cake. Because there’s no turning this one upside down to get it out.

Place some parchment paper on the bottom so it hangs over. Close the latch to hold the paper in place and secure the sides. You’ll also want to spray the paper with some non-stick cooking spray just to be safe.

After your pan is ready, preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Separate 6 large eggs. Yolks in one bowl and egg whites in another. Set aside.

Melting Chocolate

You’ll also need 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate and 4 oz. dark chocolate. Break it up in a large bowl and add 2 sticks of butter (thank you Paula!). Melt in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between until completely melted and smooth.

Whisk in 1 1/4 cups sugar until combined.

Then add the six egg yolks to the chocolate and sugar mixture, one at a time, whisking after each addition.

Beating Egg whites

Now, in a medium bowl, beat the six egg whites on high with an electric mixer. Beat it for several minutes until stiff peaks form.

Yum!

Then, gently fold your egg white mixture into the melted chocolate mixture until combined. Pour it in your pan and bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.

Cracked and getting ready to fall.

It will rise pretty high in the oven, but when you take it out to cool, it will fall. And fall hard. Yay!

Let it cool one hour on the counter and then for at least four hours in the refrigerator before you release it from the springform pan.

Deep Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake

And, when you finally do… it will be worth the wait. I didn’t really know what the texture of the inside would be like, but oh my… it was glorious.

Rich and dense and fudgey! Definitely one for true chocolate lover’s. And, If you don’t like things too rich, then stay away. Stay far, far away!

Flourless chocolate Cake

I also sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top to finish it off.

Fudgey!

Okay, a lot!

Paula Deen's Deep Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake

Here’s what it’s supposed to look like. Mine had a few more cracks, but I was completely and utterly happy with it.

But, wait a minute… let me tell you the real reason I made this cake from Paula’s magazine.

There was a slim chance I was going to be able to meet Paula on Sunday (thanks to my friend Ted and help from someone on her team) and I wanted to have one of her dessert recipes under my belt if I did. You know, in case we had a moment to chit chat and talk about butter and stuff. Yeah, right!

She was speaking at the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show in Atlanta, and to be honest, I really didn’t think I would get to meet her…

Me, my mom and Paula!

Or get a picture taken with her. Hey, Paula!

My mom and I were so thrilled. She is every bit as beautiful and funny and nice as she is on TV. (And I do mean funny. We also had the opportunity to hear her speak later on and she had the whole place laughing.)

Me, my mom and Bobby!

We also met her son, Bobby. Yummy!!! I mean, he was really nice.

Later on, we even met her other yummy, I mean really nice son, Jamie. Unfortunately, I spazzed and didn’t get a picture of him. But, he did help me out with something.

Something I think you’ll like.

Paula Deen Cookbook

See this cookbook. I bought it last minute at the show. (Sorry, her brand new one was sold out.)

But, that’s okay, because look what Jamie got his mom to do for me just minutes before she went on stage to speak.

Paula Deen Sig

Yep, that’s her signature. And, it gets even better.

I’m giving it away! The book… signature and all. Who wants it?

Seriously, at first, I thought I would keep it, and then, I thought… I would keep it! Then, I decided it would be much more fun to give it away. Besides, it could be a great Mother’s Day present for someone. And, don’t feel bad, I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that I can get another copy for myself later.

Better hurry and enter… The winner will be chosen Monday night.

Paula is just so darn friendly…at least she seems to be “on TV”. I am so happy to hear you were able to confirm that in real life. My Mother-in-Law is the best cook…and she would absolutely love this book. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift from her son and I.
Thanks for the chance to win…and for giving up this gift!

I love Paula because just seems so real! I trust that her recipes are going to be good because she looks like she enjoys the food she makes and isn’t stick thin like all of those other females on the food network [what is with that anyway?]! I like to know that the cook eats what they make before I bother trying their recipe!

Heather said...

At first I was confused by this Southern Lady with all her charm and passion for butter. I wanted to reject her, for the most part because my mom loved her and was happy as all get out because she was just getting remarried at the time. I was …rebelling. But now that I’m in the dark strange world of (small) city living, I’ve come to miss the warmth of home and that Paula brings it to me on the food network. When I am stirring batters alone in my small bedroom. In the dark. Paula Deen takes me back to watching FN with my mom and I’d have to decide between keeping it for myself or giving it to my mom for mother’s day.

Thank you. I love the blog.

I think the number one reason I love butter is that it’s been so darn long since I’ve eaten it. Oh, but back when I did – bread ‘n butter sandwiches. That alone was reason enough.

I moved from my childhood in the south to San Francisco 2 1/2 years ago and sometimes I think Paula Deen is the only connection to real food that I have. Everything here is so fancy and small sometimes!

Hello,

Hey Y’all!!! I would love to win this wonderful Paula Deen cook book from you for my 15 year old daughter. She loves to cook and Paula Deen and Rachael Ray are her two favorite cooks. She tapes them and watches later if she doesn’t have time. She is certainly the cook in the family. I make the average meals and she always cooks with that extra somin’ somin’. She would be thrilled beyond thrilled to have an autographed book from her. Have a great day!

I love everything about her, but her humor and her relationship with her son’s are at the top of the list. Thank you for the contest.

Yes,I too love Paula Deen and watch her show everyday. Her personality is just so warm that you can’t help but smile when she’s on. I’m so happy for all of her success she truly deserves it.nikkib74@comcast.net

I love the flavor butter holds on my tongue I just try not to look down and see where it ended up. I love my frostings and other baked goods made with it, the flavors are agonizingingly wonderful because of this glorious stick of yum. Yep I’ve seen on the pages of Paula she’s not afraid to use it for all the good it can do. I’d love to add her to my CB Hall of Fame, to let the other cooksbooks saddle up and take notice to a woman that sprung forth like a daffodill on a spring morning, to see a “woman that worked hard for the money”. That’s why I’d like her book :) She is amazing

OOOOOH Bakerella!!!! I just salivate when I see pics of your magical creative creations…and now?? I’m so envious that you got to meet PAULA! The Queen! I’ve loved watching that girl from way back and it’s been so fun to watch her over the years. I’ve always been drawn to all things “Southern” and finally live down here. One dream I have is to meet Ms. Dean. Her story is such an inspiration to me. Don’t know if I’ll win or not, but even though I’m envious you got to meet her…I’m thrilled for you!!!

I love butter AND Paula Dean. Not only her cooking but her story as well. Plus, Paula reminds me of my own sweet Mum who lives 700 miles away from me.

OMG!! What a special weekend! I missed my family reunion this weekend, due to the awful weather. There is ALWAYS a recipe (or two…or ten) from Paula on our family reunion tables. My entire family is infatuated!!! How could you go wrong with anything that Paula makes?

Being from Georgia (with parents from middle/South Ga) I LOVE Paula! Everything she makes is like home to me! (butter, mayonnaise, cream cheese and all!) Not to mention, I LOVE to bake!

Hey Y’all! My Mom was just saying to me yesterday she’d love to find a really great true southern recipe for fried chicken, well what better person to turn to for that than Paula Deen! It would be a great Mom’s Day gift for my Mommy. Thanks for the chance to win it.
–And I always use lots of real butter!
