This Chocolate Truffle Cake is deliciously rich from ganache to core, yet it is well balanced in every category. Hey, I love a really over-the-top sweet dessert, now and then, but for many occasions, it’s better to have something that is, well, on more of an even keel. Don’t get me wrong; there is sweetness here! But it is amply complemented by other flavors to yield a cake that, while rather rich, doesn’t overwhelm you in any given direction.
I actually prefer chocolate recipes in which the natural flavor of the chocolate is allowed to come out and play some, rather than being entirely masked by the sugar. This cake certainly fits the bill. It is also rather moist, and the creamy filling and ganache balance the flavor nicely without over-complicating things. And remember – you can make the cake ahead and freeze it until you’re ready to frost and serve it!
