          California brown sugar is way too dry for this. I get my brown sugar shipped from Domino in GA because "We'll always be your sugar." Gotta have that wet sand consistency!

              I dont have access to pan any deeper than 1.5in and 9in diameter is that really gonna affect the outcome or is there a way I can use those pans to end up with something close?

                    i like a dense crumb. which is why i love flourless chocolate cake. it’s basically a brownie.

                            I made this cake two days ago. Personally, I found the bittersweet frosting to be a bit too much of a counter punch to the sweetness of the pudding. My dad liked it while my son also felt it was too much so I think age plays a role in how people react to it. When I make it again, I will likely try a 50/50 blend of 60% bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate. Other than that, this cake is fantastic. Thanks Rick!

                                            No professional cook or baker male or female, should be wearing nail polish to cook or serve. I had a cake business for 15 years and removing polish would be the first thing I did before starting my work. It's so distracting every time I watch a Rick video.

                                              @Kari Roueche hmm, that makes sense. Reminds me of why my mother never wore polish; it always came off while she cooked dinner!

                                              @detachedskull Nail polish chips and can get in the food. The color is distracting in the videos, but also just the worry about what could happen is distracting.

It didn't look quite as graceful as Rick's did, but I absolutely positively would and will make this again.
