  • Chocolate espresso fudge cake

      This is an amazing cake! Best buttercream frosting I've ever made - and you don't have to pour a hot syrup into the mixer (which I've never been able to do successfully). I served this at the end of a 6 course meal, and everyone (6 people) had 2 pieces (which was half the cake). Simply wonderful. I've thought about baking it in a square shape, but my husband won't let me mess with the recipe. Don't tell people the ingredient list -- or quantities! Just serve it to them.

Publishers Text

Ten years after its original publication, Death by Chocolate remains the ultimate chocolate dessert cookbook. It won the James Beard Award, inspired a television show, and has sold over 100,000 copies. All of the original mouthwatering recipes remain, now supplemented by many new recipes carefully crafted by master chef Marcel Desaulniers.


All preparations and ingredients are included with full-color photographs, allowing mere mortals to create chocolate masterpieces such as the eponymous Death by Chocolate, Chocolate Temptation, and Chocolate Dementia.
