Incredibly Wonderful Chocolate Cake by Jill Dupleix


Do you ever hear the name of a dish and that alone determines that you must make it?  I do from time to time, and when I heard about a Jill Dupleix cake recipe called "Incredibly Wonderful Chocolate Cake", I knew that I had to make it.  How could I not make something that is incredibly wonderful?

This contains 250g of dark chocolate, contributing to the incredible wonderfulness of this cake - I used dark chocolate Easter eggs.  It is like a huge American brownie - it is crispy on the outside and soft and fudgy on the inside, is smooth on the tongue and melts in the mouth.  Look at the texture:


It really is an incredibly wonderful cake.

Let me leave you with my favourite feedback on this cake, from a work colleague:

"Your cake tasted like Jesus himself hand made it.  It was amazing."
 
If that doesn't convince you to make it, I don't know what else will.
 
Have a great weekend.

looks like my sort of cake. Actually it is very like one of my favourite chocolate cakes that came from Jill Dupleix and s a flourless chocolate one with 3 eggs, lots of chocolate and almonds - I almost wonder if she has reworked that recipe into a better one

"Jesus himself made it"? I am in giggles over that. And like you, I'm drawn in my the title alone. Combined with the pictures and that quote - sold!

Looks so good, i see her soetimes when she comes over from Australli to UK and then she comes to cooking programmes. I always think her recipe is so easy to make and always come good.

Now we DO have a hankering for huge American brownies in Colorado so this looks like it's more up my alley. Yum.

Wow - Jesus cake! So I guess eating it would be a spiritual experience?

Hehe what a name and I'm glad to hear that it lived up to it! That is one good rap from your colleague! :D
