Very very rich chocolate cake for the chocoholic! Stopped by at the cafe yesterday and asked T what kind of cake he would like me to bake next. He pointed at the flourless chocolate cake and specified that he wanted the ganache on the cake too... what a chocoholic!
I also made few cognac-chocolate truffles with the cake, mashed and rolled two slices of cake (with ganache), and coated them cocoa powder.
