Cherry Ripe Chocolate Cake (adapted)

One of the things I remember fondly from my short time in Australia, is a chocolate bar called Cherry Ripe. A cherry and coconut confection wrapped in dark chocolate. It's so darn addictive.



Cherry Ripe happens to be my brother's favourite chocolate bar and because it was his birthday yesterday (and me being such a nice sister, ahem), I decided to adapt a chocolate cake recipe into a Cherry Ripe Chocolate Cake.

They don't sell Cherry Ripe in Malaysia (except on rare occasions at Cold Storage in Bangsar Shopping Complex). But I don't need the chocolate bars for this remarkably easy recipe anyway, so here goes.

The cake
200gm cooking chocolate (the better quality ones like Lindt 70% taste better, of course)
125gm butter (half a block)
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar

The topping
300gm glace red cherries (2 small boxes), chopped
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 egg + 1 egg white

The chocolate ganache on top
150gm cooking chocolate + 50gm butter (to make chocolate ganache for topping)


Grease and line a 9" square cake pan (or smaller if you want a thicker cake) with baking paper.

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a glass bowl over simmering water in a sauce pot.



Stir in the sugar, beaten eggs, then sift in the flour gradually. Pour into cake pan.

Mix cherries and coconut with egg and extra egg white evenly in a bowl.



Spoon Cherry-Coconut topping evenly on top. Press down gently.



Bake in 180'C oven for 30-35 minutes.

When done, melt extra cooking chocolate and butter in glass bowl over simmer water again. Let cool. Drizzle over cake.



Nice served warm, but it'll hold better if served after doing some time in the fridge.

Note: This makes a thin layer of chocolate cake at the bottom, so it's probably more of a slice than a cake. But the thin layer balances the cherry-coconut topping just nicely. Too much of either chocolate cake or topping would be quite cloying. I reckon this could work with a Brownie recipe as the chocolate base, though it won't be as moist as this one.
