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.

I LOVE BUTTER!! From my toddler days, where they used to find me sitting on top of the table with a stick of butter in my hands eating it like it was a candy bar to today at 46 years old. When I cook I cut the stick of butter for what the recipe calls for and then cut me a piece to eat…what can I say I JUST LOVE BUTTER…and of course I Love Paula Deen too! Happy Cookin’ Y’all!

How do I love Paula? Let me count the ways….

1. Um, she’s Paula Deen!
2. She makes food accessable to everyone.
3. She isn’t afraid to use two sticks of butter.
4. Her story is inspirational.
5. She is completly and totally comfortable with herself.
6. Four words: Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding. ‘Nuff said.

I am entering this contest under the assumption that the book was not only signed by Paula, but because she also wrote Bobby’s phone number in it because she knows it’s going to me. Seriously. I heart Bobby. A lot.

Oh my gosh, y’all! First, love Bakerella! Found you through Pioneer Woman. Second, looooooooove Paula Dean! My family and all my friends swear she is my mother (they look, act and talk a lot alike). I would just fall over if I won this. And then I would have way too tough a time deciding if I was going to keep it for myself (I’m getting married in June) or give it to my Mom – the worlds biggest Paula fan ever. :) When I’m having a bad day, I just turn on the TV and Paula always makes me feel better. When I’m missing my Mom, I just turn on the TV and Paula always makes me feel like my mom is right there with me. :) Thanks for the greatest give away ever, Bakerella and congrats on meeting “the legend.”

Hi, Bakerella!
A friend introduced me to your blog when it was Easter Cake Pop time, and I’m HOOKED! I was raised on butter and gravy, I think, in an infinite amount of combinations. While I’ve been able to limit my gravy consumption as an adult, I just can’t quit butter…I only buy margarine when I bake Grandma’s chocolate chip cookies that won’t crisp without “oleo.” We’re big fans of Paula’s around here, too–she’s my go-to girl when it’s Bunco night and I need a fun recipe. Of course, my next baking project? More cake pops! Thanks for doing what you do!

Hey y’all!!!

Well, what’s not to love about Paula! She’s a southern girl, she’s a great cook, she fought her way through lots of problems and adversity, and worked her way to becming a great success – a great role model to us all! But it’s the food. The recipes, the butter, the wonderul comfort foods and delightful way she gives us permisson to enjoy these things that endears her to us all!

By the way, I’d LOVE to have this book! Thanks for the chance, Becky G.

Paula Deen looks like my aunt, cooks like my grandmother and has a Southern accent just like my grandfather. She reminds me of home!

I just love Paula and all her buttery goodness. My husband took me for a taping of Paula’s Party. You are right…she is absolutely delightful and hilarious in person.

Yummy! I love her taco soup recipe and her mini cheesecakes with pb cubs inside.

I love Paula, although I know she wants us ALL to have heart attacks with the butter in her recipes. Still, so so yummy!

I adore Paula Deen – I love her story, her attitude and her fun spirit – she reminds me so much of my aunt/god-mother. And, anyone who puts together an entire publication dedicated to chocolate is my kind of gal!!

Hey Bakerella! I love baking, reading your blog and watching Paula on T.V. In fact, I watched her Sunday morning. I’d love to own one of her books.

I just love your giveaways. Hopefully I’ll win one, soon. ;)

Wow! Despite my boyfriend complaining about her accent, I still watch her show whenever I can. I grew up in North and South Carolina, and everything she makes has a feeling of home.

Plus if Jesus weren’t around, Paula would be my grandmother’s savior. She has all her cookbooks and has eaten at her restaurant and even has a decorative plate with “best dishes” on it.

She’d surely love it.

Being a Southern gal myself, she reminds me of so many wonderful strong women that I’ve known in my life. And she makes some pretty tasty stuff, too! :)
