Chocolate is a vice we like to experiment with heavily over the festive period (hello, spiced rum chocolate caramel eggnog) — but it's not all created equal. For example, that old candy you found in your cupboard from last December is definitely not the same as this exquisite flourless chocolate cake recipe from EPOCH Bar & Kitchen Terrace located inside The Ritz-Carlton.
The decadent dessert — also known as Chocolate Nemesis Cake — uses good quality dark chocolate, eggs, sugar and butter, plus some whipped cream and blackberries for a delicious finale.
"This is a cake that I first ate at the River Café in London, U.K," says Jeff Crump, specialty chef at EPOCH Bar & Kitchen Terrace. "It was a revelation to me, for its simple plating and dramatic flavours. ‘Keep it simple’ has long been a guiding principle for my cuisine."
