Blackgold Truffle Cupcake – silken, decadently-rich flourless truffle cupcake, topped with whipped white chocolate ganache flecked with edible gold luster dust. Price available upon request.
I have this recipe for a flourless chocolate truffle cake and once again, I converted it into miniature cakes. If you are a true-blue chocoholic, this cupcake is for you. I bake this differently and that accounts for the silky texture through and through. I have tried countless recipes of flourless truffle cake and this is the best of the lot. It has a deep chocolate flavor and is not too sweet although it is indeed rich. But then chocolate IS supposed to be rich. No sugar-free chocolates for me!
The cupcake is decadent enough so I just topped it with a whipped white chocolate ganache that is also not cloyingly sweet. And to highlight its richness, there is nothing more appropriate than flecks of edible gold luster dust.
