Gateau Marquise Au Chocolat

I am sure some of us would wonder what is Gateau Marquise Au Chocolat. Well it is basically mean Decadent Chocolate Cake and that is what I had stumbled upon when I was reading Robert Linxe’s book “La Maison Du Chocolat“. I would really recommend this book to be in your mini library as it did somehow sneak into mine. It is a lovely book showing the work of Robert Linxe on chocolate and full of gorgeous pictures.

For this time I had modified Robert Linxe’s Decadent Chocolate Dessert into a cake version. This cake I would like to dedicated this especially to Lee Ping, ……..a healty dessert…….. You will be very surprise that I did not baked this cake in Big Boys Oven as it doesn’t need baking!

Basically and firstly you need to make the crust, mix a variety of roasted crushed nuts with melted butter and place it into the mould and refrigerate it until hard. Next you need to have your lovely melted chocolate, place in soft butter and egg yolk. Fold in beaten sugared egg white, and tranfer it to the mold and refrigerate for 12 hours. Once done, pipe in whipping cream and top it with nuts and chocolate powder.

Do give it a try and I am sure your guest will be for a surprise.

    LOL at all these greedy people! Looks good and I guess this one is not advisable for pregnant women since it contains uncooked eggs?

    Can I send Joe and Jackson over to eat it then?

    My husband would raise one of his thick eyebrows when he sees a person dedicates a cake that he hand made to me and then, signs off as xxx.

    p/s I do like French bakery. You have read my mind. Thanks for the dedication.

    Chocolate Marquise is one of m favorites. Decadent, rich and not that difficult to put together. Beautiful ripple effect on top!
