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.

Hey, y’all!

That cake looks amazing, I might just have to try it.

Paula is a personal hero of mine. To go from nothing and become so successful doing something she loves is amazing. And the fact that she’s not a ‘classically trained’ chef just makes her awesome.

Well, in our house, we call her "Miss Paula." You know, just 'cause :) I've always loved her but she was the first chef on tv that my daughter loved. We've made some of her recipes together & she got Miss Paula's cookbook for kids in her Easter basket this year. We're just big 'ole fans here!

I love her enthusiasm and her food. When my mom and I took our first ever girls trip last summer to Savannah her tour was first on our list with dinner at her restauran. Our tour company had a major mixup and the short story is we missed both the tour and our advance reservations! We did eat at Bubba’s and it was great.

I heart Paula because she is genuine.

She isn’t perfect. Her show isn’t so choreographed that if she makes a mistake it is awful, she just giggles and goes on.

But the best thing about her is that she loves her food, and she isn’t afraid to show it.

PS. My children in the background are saying this…

Dear Bakerella,
My mom is obsessed with Paula. Please give her the book, or we’ll never hear the end of it.

I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Paula book. You see, I’m 16 and while most teenagers idolize some celebrity singer,or actress, my idol is Paula Deen! While most teens are out partying, I’m in the kitchen baking up sweets. I’m planning to go to culinary school too and major as a pastry chef? I love Paula’s country flair and she makes me proud to be a southern belle lol. She was coming to a city near me to speak and cook but unfortunately her tickets were sold out.(TEAR) She was supposed to do a book signing there too and that’s why I’d love this book. Thanks?

Wow!!! What an amazing opportunityit was to meet Paula!! I would love this cookbook because my husband always forgets to get me a Mothers Day present, or wish me a Happy Mother’s Day, or make me breakfast in bed, or ANYTHING. After 12 years, I’ve kinda gotten over it (I know all the mommies out there will pooh-pooh…but he’s not mean, it’s just that he runs a 10-million-dollar restaurant, and Mother’s Day is HUGE, and it consumes him for weeks before and after)…so I’ll be greedy and wish for this cookbook for me!!! Thanks, Bakerella!!

I love watching Paula on food network, and reading your blog. I’m a cookbook collector, and believe it or not I don’t have a Paula Deen cookbook yet. I’d love to have it!

I just love her! My boys (13 & 9) love to hear her say ya'll and my girls (11 & 6) love to help me bake any of her recipes. I made her Lauren's Chocolate Drizzle Pie for Easter and OHHHHH- it was delish! I'm so jealous of your opportunity to meet her!

I love Paula b/c her infectious laugh reminds me of my grandma. And being from the south how could I not love butter and all the goodness that Paula makes…and 3 times I have tried to eat at her restaurant the Lady & Sons and all 3 times it was completely booked by 11 a.m. And I want it b/c I'm in the military stationed in Korea and no longer can watch Paula on the food network, makes me so sad :( and Bakerella you can reach me at gigglez82@hotmail.com THANKS! Ya'll ;)
