FAQs

What is truffle cake made of? down-arrow

Truffle cake is a dense and moist chocolate cake which is made with flour, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, and butter. What sets a chocolate truffle cake apart from a regular chocolate cake is the ganache or chocolate truffle layer, which contains cream, dark chocolate and some butter. This layer has a smooth, decadent, and indulgent mouthfeel and texture.

Do dark chocolate truffles have milk? down-arrow

If you buy dark chocolate truffles from an artisanal store, they might not contain milk in its purest form. However, this may not be the case with commercially or mass produced truffles which will have milk solids or milk powder to give them some added flavor and texture.

Why is it called chocolate truffle cake? down-arrow

The rich and velvety texture that’s poured over the cake is why this cake is referred to as a chocolate truffle cake. The cake itself is also denser, richer and more moist than a regular chocolate cake. So, the overall effect is similar to biting into a chocolate truffle ball.
