Surefire Dessert Recipe

Indulge your taste buds with this decadent chocolate truffle cake that’s sure to impress everyone at the table. Rich, velvety, and oh-so-delicious, it’s a dessert dream come true.


  • 250g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
  • 200g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100g all-purpose flour
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting (optional)
  • Fresh berries, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C (325°F). Grease a 9-inch round cake tin and line the base with parchment paper.
  2. Break the dark chocolate into pieces and place them in a heatproof bowl. Add the unsalted butter to the bowl. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn’t touch the water. Allow the chocolate and butter to melt together, stirring occasionally. Once melted, remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the caster sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined and slightly frothy.
  4. Gradually pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, whisking continuously until smooth and glossy.
  5. Sift in the all-purpose flour and gently fold it into the chocolate mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cake is set around the edges but still slightly soft in the middle. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with a few moist crumbs attached.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Then, carefully transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, dust the top of the cake with cocoa powder for an extra chocolatey touch (optional).
  10. Serve slices of the chocolate truffle cake on dessert plates, garnished with fresh berries if desired. Enjoy the heavenly indulgence!
