Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Dreamy Valentine's Day Dacquoise Chocolate Cake


Sure thing! Let's get started on that Valentine's Day Dacquoise Chocolate. This recipe will guide you through creating a delicious dessert that's perfect for any romantic occasion. 

First things first, gather your ingredients. You'll need:

  • 60g egg whites
  • 18g granulated sugar
  • 36g almond flour
  • 6g cocoa powder
  • 3g coconut flakes
  • 30g powdered sugar
  • 25g sweet chocolate
  • 13g cream cheese

Step By Step :

  • Now, let's start with the dough. Put the egg whites in a bowl and add the granulated sugar gradually using a hand mixer. Mix until you have a smooth meringue.
  • Next, add the almond flour, cocoa powder, and coconut flakes to the meringue mixture. Mix gently until the ingredients are well combined. Be careful not to overmix and crush the meringue.
  • Once your dough is ready, pour it into a bag lined with a 1cm diameter metal ring and squeeze it out into a round shape. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until it's about 4cm in diameter.
  • Now, sprinkle powdered sugar over the dough and bake it in a preheated oven set to 180 degrees Celsius for about 18 minutes. Remember to adjust the temperature and time according to your oven .
  • While the dough is baking, prepare your chocolate ganache. Melt the sweet chocolate and cream cheese together in a heatproof container in a microwave set to 600W for about 30 seconds. Be careful as the cream cheese might fly off if it gets too hot.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, place the dough in the oven again. When it's baked, remove it from the oven and immediately pour the chocolate ganache over it. Sprinkle the cooled dough with half of the melted chocolate and let it sit for a few minutes to ensure the ganache doesn't stick to your hands.
  • To finish up, pour the remaining melted chocolate over the ganache side of the dough. Decorate with your favorite flowers or lines. Once everything is cool, cut into wedges and serve.

And voila! You now have a beautifully decorated Dacquoise Chocolate cake ready for your special occasion. Enjoy!
