The Worlds Biggest Truffle!


Not, really, lol.

But, this little baby here tastes like a big ole’ Truffle.  It’s the Flourless Bourbon Chocolate Cake that I shared with everyone at YT and here’s how to make it:

Flourless Chocolate Cake


  • 8 oz of Semi/Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 8 oz of Unsalted Sweet Cream Butter
  • 1/2 c Brewed Coffee
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 scraped Vanilla Bean (or 1 ts Vanilla Extract)
  • 2-3 tb Whiskey, Bourbon, Rum…
  • Pinch of Kosher Salt


  1. In a small saucepan, melt your Butter and meld together with your Coffee.
  2. In a large bowl, scrape your Vanilla Bean in and slowly tip in your Butter/Coffee mixture.
  3. Allow the heat of this to melt your Chocolate and add those in.
  4. Sprinkle in your Sugar.
  5. Throw in a pinch of Salt.
  6. In a slow and steady stream, add in your Eggs.
  7. Whisk everything into a smooth mixture.
  8. Lastly, tip in your Liquor (if you’re using it).
  9. Pour your batter into a baking dish.
  10. Bake at 350 for about an hour (or use mini ramekins and bake for 25 minutes)


Baking this as a whole Cake takes foreeeever. 50-55 minutes! Trim down on cost by not breaking your Ramekins like I did (kllllutz) and it’ll shave down baking time by half! If you have to bake as a Cake, definitely take heed to the advice of cooling it in the freezer/fridge for easier handling. Wipe your serrated knife for each cut for clean slices. You may dust the top with Confectioners Sugar/Cocoa Powder or snip the edge off a Ziplock bag and drizzle Raspberry Sauce/Warmed Raspberry Jelly on top for prettier presentation =)
