Truffle Cake

Standard

Substance over style, I guess Gordon would have made it look better. Boy does it taste good.
I used Willie’s cacao Indonesian Black 100% ,instead of chocolate. Gordon likes to use Valrhona its good chocolate. But I think the beans used in Willies are better. It’s not as refined as Valrhona , but flavour wise it wins out. Use it and read the tasting notes, you will see what I mean.
Adding cream and Dark Muscavado to mimic chocolate bar, the results were superb. I used some cheap butter mixed with the last of my Rhodas Cornish Butter, a bad move. Rhodas make superb butter even with the salt. I will use all Rhodas next time.
