Daring Bakers: Flourless Chocolate Cake & Ice Cream!

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on February 28, 2009

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.

Thanks Wendy and Dharm!  I really enjoyed this challenge for so many reasons.  First, it was relatively simple to make, and second, it was naturally gluten free.  Unless you got wheat-laden chocolate, but thats an easy fix =D. 
So… Here is how I made the Chocolate Valentino Cake:
I got out a whole ton of chocolate bars, and broke them up.  Ok, and I snuck a few bites =D
Then I got out and cut up the butter.
Then I placed the skillfully broken up chocolate into a heat-proof bowl.
And added the butter, of course.
Slowly melt it all together…
Until it’s melted.  And Combined.
Then do some things with the eggs, mix it all together, plop the cake in the oven and make that ice cream.  Actually I started it ages ago, but I needed to stir it.  No Ice Cream Maker means stirring every 1/2 hour, so do that =D.
Pre-stirring.
While stirring.  So much more uniform, or it will be soon enough =D.
Yeah, don’t forget the cake.  I wouldn’t want it to burn or anything.
Mmm, and of course it all comes together perfectly!
I really enjoyed this cake.  It was very good.  And very rich, which meant that I couldn’t eat that much, but my brother gobbled it up before I’d even sat down =D.  I used the Ice Cream recipe from Wendy, because I found it simpler, and I obviously made it in my freezer…
Enjoy this cake, it’s really really good!
