Daring bakers: Flourless Chocolate Cake

The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE's blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef. We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge. February’s challenge is a Flourless Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Valentino, inspired by Malaysia’s “most flamboyant food ambassador”, Chef Wan. Recipe comes from Sweet Treats by Chef Wan
I started out this recipe and things were looking good. I was using Tesco Finest dark choclate and I will never use it again. It didn't taste so great plain, I just hoped it would bake up better with other things in the mix..

Here it is ready to go in the oven.. it had a slightly strange foamy texture.

It came out of the oven with alot of oil or something percolating around it but after resting a few minutes it turned out of its pan fine. But it was terrible this cake was crumbly with a terrible taste. I threw the rest away.. obviously I did something wrong or it was poisioned by tesco chocolate....

Sorry about your cake. I had problems with mine too.

Sorry to hear that you had so much problems with your cake. Luckily I didn't but unfortunately didn't favour a "flourless" cake that much.

Oh, so many problems. Sorry it was so horrible for you. Guess looks aren't everything.
