Chocolate Truffle Cake

Here is the recipe for the chocolate truffle cake served at German Conversation Group this evening:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...berries-101129

I up-sized the recipe and baked it for 30 minutes in a 9x13" pan

1 lb bittersweet chocolate
200 g butter
2/3 cup sugar
8 eggs
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp flour

Bake it a day ahead and let it settle overnight. Use a cookie-cutter to cut out 24 individual cakes. Coat twice with ganache:

275 g bittersweet chocolate
100 mL cream (vollrahm)
100 mL espresso
100 g butter
1 1/2 tbsp orange liqueur

Delicious topped with a fresh raspberry, or with strawberry vodka buttercream:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Xuxu strawberry liqueur
~ 3 cups powdered sugar
