for Chocolate Date Cake


  • 16 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup whole, skinned almonds, toasted and ground


Put the chocolate into a bowl. Bring the cream to a gentle simmer, pour over the chocolate, and stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Fold in the spices and nuts. Spread the chocolate batter evenly onto a silicone mat or wax paper-lined baking sheet and chill until firm, about 30 minutes. Using a round cookie cutter, cut the wafer into discs that are slightly larger than the top of the cakes.
