“I absolutely love chocolate and this pate is for the "true chocoholics". It is rich, smooth and worth every sinful bite!!!! A little goes a long way, so I usually serve this with fresh raspberries and kiwi. I got this recipe from our local paper.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9 by 5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place chopped chocolate into the top of a double boiler; add cream and butter. Melt over medium heat, stirring until completely smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for 1 minute, continuing to stir.
  3. Whisk in egg yolks. Sift icing sugar into chocolate mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in liqueur. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Chill for at least 8 hours to set, or overnight.
  5. Unmould cake, removing paper. Dust top with cocoa powder. Drizzle a large spoonful of the raspberry splash on each plate. Using a hot, wet knife, slice cake and place on plate.
  6. Raspberry Splash: In a food processor, puree raspberries, berry sugar and lemon juice. Pass sauce through sieve to remove seeds.
  7. Note: I have taken this recipe and cut it in half quite successfully ~ or ~ I have placed the cake in 2 smaller loaf pans and frozen one. Freeze for 1 month.
