Flourless Chocolate Cake with Macaroon Pecan Crust with Raspberry Coulis


  • 1 cup pecans (your favorite or a blend)
  • 24 small coconut macaroons (I used Manischewitz)
  • 8 oz (2 sticks) unsalted butter or Pareve margarine
  • 16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup *Sabra Chocolate Orange liqueur
  • 8 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
Raspberry Coulis:
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, or 1 (10 oz) pkg frozen, thawed and drained
  • 1/4 cup fine sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Sabra Chocolate Orange Liqueur


1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees 2. For Crust: In a food processor, blend nuts and macaroons until finely chopped. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Press mixture onto entire bottom of pan to insure crust is firmly in place. 3. For Cake: In a saucepan, melt butter, when hot, add chocolate. Using a wooden spoon, stir continuously until chocolate is smooth, add liqueur and blend. 4. In a large bowl, whip the eggs and sugar until doubled in volume. 5. When chocolate mixture is fully melted, incorporate it slowly to egg mixture and blend well. 6. Pour batter into prepared springform pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until center no longer wiggles. Remove from oven and let cook at room temperature. Place cake in refrigerator. Thirty (30) minutes prior to serving remove from refrigerator and allow to get to room temperature. 7. For Coulis: Place berries, sugar, orange and lemon juice in a blender - puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a glass bowl, discarding the seeds. Stir in the liqueur, taste, and adjust sugar if necessary.
8. Place in a squirt bottle and decorate plate and cake as desired.
  Serve with berries and Raspberry Coulis. *Note: You could also use a coffee liqueur and if not keeping Passover - Kahlua will work as well. Enjoy!!!
