Different variations of a Millionaire Cake recipe.



Different variations of a Millionaire Cake recipe.










1. 2/3 c. butter
1 c. heavy or whipping cream
1 c. cocoa (unsweetened if you can get it)
6 lg. eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
White Chocolate Glaze (below)
Chocolate Leaves (below)

About 4 hours before serving or early in day:


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease bottom only of a 9-inch spring form pan.

2. In 2-quart saucepan over low heat, heat butter, cream, and 3/4 cup sugar until butter just melts. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa. Freeze mixture, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.

3. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat eggs, vanilla, and salt just until mixed. Add flour and 3/4 cup sugar. On high speed, beat until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir about 1/4 of egg mixture into cooled chocolate mixture then fold all of chocolate mixture into remaining egg mixture. Pour batter into pan. Bake 55 to 60 minutes until cake is firm in center. (Cake will be very moist when done; standard tests for doneness cannot be used.) Run thin-bladed knife around edge of cake to loosen from side of pan. Cool cake completely in pan on wire rack (cake will fall and leave a deep indentation). Remove side of pan.

4. Prepare White Chocolate Glaze; spread over cake. Refrigerate until glaze is firm.

5. Prepare Chocolate Leaves; use to garnish cake.


Makes 16 servings.


White Chocolate Glaze:

In 1-quart saucepan over very low heat, melt 12 ounces white chocolate (or four 3-ounce Swiss confectionery bars or two 6-ounce white baking bars), 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar, and 1/4 cup shortening.


Chocolate Leaves:

In small saucepan over low heat, melt one 6-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate pieces (1 cup) and 4 teaspoons shortening. In another saucepan over very low heat, melt 3 ounces white chocolate and 1 tablespoon shortening.

Rinse and dry 16-20 medium-sized lemon leaves. Spread semi-sweet or white-chocolate mixture on underside of leaves. Refrigerate until firm. Peel each leaf from chocolate. Repeat with remaining chocolate.

A crazy mixture of shortbread cake and caramel with a stunning cover of marbled chocolate.

If you have ever tasted this, ordinary shortbread  cookies will NEVER be the same again!


Makes approx 12 squares

Good 1/3 cup flour
2 Tbs sugar
1 3/4 oz butter or margarine

For caramel and cover:
1 3/4 oz butter or margarine
5 Tbs brown sugar
1 3/4 cups single cream
2 1/2 oz dark chocolate
2 1/2 oz milk chocolate
2 1/2 oz white chocolate

Mix flour and sugar for the dough in a bowl.

Stir in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Knead this dough to a ball and press it down  in the bottom of a buttered baking dish, with a side of good 7" - a small roasting pan maybe.

Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until the cake feels firm when you touch it and is light brown in color.

Allow to cool in the dish.

Put butter, sugar, and thin cream in a saucepan and heat on low heat  until the sugar has dissolved.

Bring to a boil while stirring, then lower the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened and creamy fudge-colored.

Pour on top of the cake in the dish and allow to cool.

When the fudge/caramel layer has set and is completely cold, you melt the different kinds of chocolate, each in its separate bowl, over a waterbath.

Pour it, teaspoon-wise, on top of the fudge/caramel and alternate the different kinds of chocolate.

Push the dish against the work surface so the chocolate blends and forms intricate patterns and then make a marble pattern with a stick or something.

Let the cake stand in the fridge until set and then cut in squares - they're very rich and generous!
