Flourless Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate-Cinnamon Ganache

For this wonderful cake, I used this recipe: Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe | Epicurious.com

For the ganache topping:

1 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 cups 72% dark chocolate bar, chopped, or dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup cinnamon chips

Allow cake to cool completely.

Gently heat cream in a small saucepan over medium heat; do not allow to boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and cinnamon chips a little at a time and whisk until smooth. Pour over cake and smooth out with a spatula.

Yay, PF!

I'll be honest - you could reduce the ganache a bit, because this recipe makes the layer a bit thick. But do you really want to?

I'll be removing the sugar from the cake completely and just using the sweet from the chocolate. I'll make the ganache with an 87% cacao.

I would top it with unsweetened whipped cream and raspberries.
