Ultimate Chocolate Cake

Well, get ready, sweet stuff. You’re gonna love this one. Our signature take on the classic chocolate cake is light and spongy yet devilishly decadent, and—thanks to dutch-process cocoa—dark as a moonless midnight.

A recent freebie issue in the mail from Cook's Country, one of the publications from the charming and oh-so-scientific folks at America's Test Kitchen, arrived at La Casa Errant Cook not long ago, and I've begun working my way through some of the supremely delicious-looking recipes.

The Errant Cook: Magic Chocolate Ice Cream

Naturally, when I came upon the recipe for Magic Chocolate Ice Cream, promising rich and creamy chocolaty decadence without the need for churning in an ice cream machine, I knew that I had found my first test subject. My husband and I normally eat chocolate ice cream with shovels rather than spoons, but even we were floored by the richness of this stuff. Small servings won't leave you disappointed.

Lookie at my Cookies: Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

I am convinced peanut butter and chocolate were made for each other, like Charlie and Claire on LOST–I’m only on Season 2 right now but someone please tell me they have gotten together. I find that a lot of my baked creations involve these two perfect ingredients because they are two of my favorite foods…they actually might be my MOST favorite foods. Needless to say, the combination of flavors when peanut butter and chocolate meet is heavenly. Salty meets sweet, mmm delicious. My Peanut Butter Cup Brownies were adapted from a recipe found on Bake or Break, I opted to use milk chocolate chips instead of the peanut butter chips for a little different flavor. Popover with Apricot Jam.

Whenever I want to make a last-minute dessert, I often turn to Jacques Pépin's Popover with Apricot Jam.

Popover with Apricot Jam

The ingredients required for the dessert are usually found in my kitchen. The dessert is quite simple to make: melt 3 tablespoon of butter in an oven-proof non-stick pan; mix half cup of flour with 2 tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt; then whisk in 2 eggs, half cup of milk, and 1/4 cup of sour cream (when I don't have it, I substitute with some yogurt); mix in the melted butter; pour the smooth batter back into the pan and bake at 400 degree F for around 20 minutes. When the popover is done, warm some apricot jam in the microwave. Use a little cognac or some water (if the kids are eating) to thin the jam and spread onto the popover. To make it look a bit fancier, I dust a bit of powdered sugar around the rim.
