“I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It says "Just a sliver of this chocolate dessert will satisfy - it is ultra-rich". Oh so true! It is just like sinking your teeth into a chocolate truffle. I searched Recipezaar's other recipes for Chocolate Truffle Cake and this one is different.”

1 9-inch cake

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For crust, combine pecans, cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar. Press onto bottom and about 1 1/2 inches up the sides of a greased 9-inch spring-form pan. Set pan aside.
  2. In a large saucepan cook and stir chocolate and shipping cream over low heat till the chocolate melts. Transfer the mixture to a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, the 3/4 cup sugar, and flour; beat 10 minutes or till thick and lemon colored. Fold one-fourth of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture; fold chocolate mixture into remaining egg mixture. Pour into crust-lined pan.
  4. Bake cake in a 325°oven about 45 minutes or till puffed around edge and halfway to center (the center will be slightly soft). Cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Cool for 4 hours. If desired, serve with whipped cream. Cover any leftovers and store in refrigerator.
  5. Orange-Chocolate Truffle Cake: Prepare as above, except stir 2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel into the egg mixture after beating.
