French Silk Chocolate Pie

2008-10-27T22:06:06.832-07:00

1 9" pie crust, baked (use your favorite recipe or a pre-made one)
Filling:
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups superfine white sugar
4 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup pasturized egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters(R)) or 4 pasturized whole eggs
Topping:
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. sugar

Directions:
Soften butter. Cream together with sugar until fluffy. Beat in cocoa and vanilla. Mix in 1/4 cup egg substitute (or 1 egg) at high speed until well mixed. Repeat 3 times until all eggs are incorporated. Keep beating on high until mixture is light and fluffy and sugar crystals are well incorporated (the recipe should NOT be gritty - the superfine sugar should help ensure that).
Spread in cooked pie shell and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Before serving, beat whipping cream, vanilla and sugar together to form soft peaks. Spread over pie, cut and serve.

Note: Since this recipe is not cooked, it's important to use either pasturized egg substitute or pasturized eggs to avoid the risk of infection, especially in young children, pregnant women or people with weakened immune systems.

Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce

2008-10-26T04:27:32.822-07:00

1 cup butter, cubed

8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

1 1/4 cups white sugar

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

6 eggs

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1/4 cup water

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons unsalted butter


(image)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

1. Butter the bottom of a 10 inch springform pan, and line with parchment paper.

2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in chocolate, and continue to stir until almost melted. Remove from heat, and stir until melted and smooth.

3. In a large bowl, stir together 1 1/4 cups sugar and the cocoa powder. Whisk in the eggs until well blended, then whisk in the chocolate and butter.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

5. Bake for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife or toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

6. Cool cake in the pan over a wire rack. Run a knife around the sides of the pan to loosen the cake, then remove the sides of the pan, and invert onto a serving plate. Remove the parchment paper.

7. In a heavy saucepan, stir together 1 1/2 cups of sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook without stirring until the syrup is a deep amber color. For an accurate color check, dip a metal spoon into the syrup and lift it out of the pan to check the color. Once the syrup is amber, remove from the heat. Gradually stir in the cream. The mixture will bubble vigorously. If lumps form, stir gently over low heat to dissolve them. Stir in 2 tablespoons of butter.

8. Cut the cake into wedges while warm, and serve with caramel sauce spooned over it. You can also chill the cake and sauce, then warm again before serving
