Although it feels a bit like cheating when you are serving someting called cake and it hasn’t been anywhere near an oven, there are some pretty good cake recipes which don’t require heat. When there are also very few ingrediënts involved, even those who firmly believe desserts are better to be bought at a good bakery will have the confidence of trying out themselves. This Chocolate Cream Cake holds no more than 3 main ingrediënts: cookies, masarpone and – no surprise – chocolate. Time to get started!
Chocolate Cream Cake: 150 gr of candy biscuits, 200 gr dark chocolate (I like to use Cote D’Or dessert chocolate), 200 gr mascarpone, 100 gr butter.
Crush the cookies. Melt the butter. Mingle both together. Put baking paper on the bottom of a springform. Divide cookies on the baking paper and push firmly. Put in the fridge for cooling.
Melt the chocolate au bain marie and leave to cool again. Whip the mascarpone (don’t use a mixer though) and mix both together. Put on top of the cookies base and leave in the fridge for a few hours.
Done! Serve with strawberries or any fruit you like. If you are ready to go all the way, a little scoop of ice cream is optional.
