If you were going to serve this Cardamon Orange Flourless Chocolate Cake next month, when raspberries are out of season, how would you garnish it for a dinner party? Thanks so much. ;o)

What about a raspberry coulis made with frozen berries? Candied kumquats would be also be nice, and they'd complement the orange zest in the cake.

Hi Antonia,

I am happy to hear you are going to make this recipe - we love it. I have re-made it a bit as well - you might enjoy this version too. http://chezus.com/2011...

For winter, I would serve it with candied cranberries or kumquats - this is the recipe I use for kumquats, cranberries can be found at the above link - http://chezpim.com/bake.... Also, as the above message states a raspberry coulis would be nice. If you can find frozen passion fruit puree that makes a great sauce to serve along side this recipe as well. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please keep me posted as to what you decide to do.

Happy New Year!

What about just simple candied orange slices with a few cracks of black pepper?

I was going to suggest candied orange peel or white chocolate shavings.

I used pomegranate arils to garnish a similar recipe over the holidays. They worked out very well and were lovely sprinkled around the plate.

I was going to suggest pomegranate too. You could always make a syrup with the seeds, and sprinkle it over the top, if it's what you wanted. Or as cranberry suggests just put the seed over the top and around the plate!
