LyB of And Then I Do The Dishes selected Chocolate Armagnac Cake as for this week's Tuesdays With Dorie. With the notoriety of this recipe (as noted in the title), I was eager to make this cake.
This decadent, almost flourless chocolate cake is made with ground pecans and armagnac-soaked (and flambeed) prunes. I dusted off the bottle of cognac I had on hand (mind you, I think we've had this bottle for 10 years --- I hope it doesn't have a limited shelf life), and it served as a respectable substitution for the armagnac.
Of the chocolate cakes made recently (Chocolate Valentino, Devil's Food), I would have to say that this is my favorite.
