Ingredients

How to make it

  • Filling:
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 10 oz. semisweet chocolate, broken in small pieces
  • 4 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Combine the cream and chocolate in a heavy 1-quart saucepan and stir over medium heat until the chocolate melts. Then reduce the heat to very low and simmer, stirring almost constantly until the mixture thickens into a heavy cream. Pour it into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. When the mixture is very cold, pour in the rum and vanilla and beat with a wire whisk or a rotary or electric beater until the filling is smooth and creamy and forms soft peaks when the beater is lifted from the bowl. Do not overbeat or the cream will turn to butter.
  • Cut the cake in half to make two layers, each 8 1/2 inches wide. Spread the filling, which will be about 2 inches thick over one layer. Set the other layer on top. Refrigerate on a rack for about 1 hour.
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup fine granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 7 oz. semisweet chocolate, broken in small pieces
  • Heat the sugar, water and chocolate in a heavy 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar and chocolate are dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and let the glaze cool for about 20 minutes. Set the rack holding the cake on a jellyroll pan and, holding the saucepan with the glaze in it about 2 inches about the cake, pour the glaze over it. Refrigerate the cake on the rack for 10 to 20 minutes longer, or until the glaze is firm.
  • Serve this dessert by cutting it into 35 small pieces (5 in each row across and 7 in each row down). Use a sharp knife that has been dipped in warm water for cutting. Rinse the knife and dip it again in warm water before each cutting
