This is another fancy flourless chocolate cake fit for a special occasion. It is made with a combination of Bavarian cream, peanut butter, and chopped peanuts all atop a flourless chocolate cake.
One flourless chocolate cake, cooled
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup Bavarian pastry filling (see notes)
peanut butter chocolate sauce (recipe follows)
Warm the peanut butter in the microwave until it is soft and easy to stir. Mix the Bavarian cream and peanut butter together in small bowl. Top the chocolate cake with the peanut butter filling.
To serve, cut the cake into slices and place on dessert plates. Drizzle with the peanut butter chocolate sauce. Top with whipped cream and serve immediately.
Baker’s note: If you do not have prepared Bavarian cream, you can make it from scratch.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Sauce
3/4 cup heavy cream
9 ounces dark chocolate wafers
1/3 cup peanut butter
Bring the cream to a boil. In a medium bowl, pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the peanut butter. Let the sauce cool enough for serving. If the sauce becomes too thick, reheat the sauce or stir in more cream.
