Black Magic Cake…

Black Magic Cake…
Originally I had not planned on blogging this cake, but after the rave reviews from co-workers, I figured it was a must! I made this late Sunday evening and could not get around to photographing it because the ganache had not thoroughly set up before I went to bed. The next morning, it was boxed up and taken to feed the co-workers. I managed to cut one reserve piece before I dashed out of house, just in case it needed to be photographed. Typically when I make cakes, I like to post a photo of the whole cake and then a piece of the sliced cake; however, my snooze hitting ways did not allow me to do this today. However, this cake was so good I had to post it despite the absent photographs. I was introduced to this cake via a cooking/baking forum; it was receiving rave reviews, so of course I had to hop on the bandwagon and give it a try. Apparently the coffee is used to bring out the flavor of the chocolate – making it more prominent as opposed to flat and one dimensional. Ingredients:

the marion house book » gooey chocolate stack Do you ever flip open a cookbook and vow to yourself that one day you’re going to make a particular recipe that catches your eye? I did that about eight years ago when I first received Nigella Lawson’s How to Be a Domestic Goddess! The recipe for Gooey Chocolate Stack had me at the name and by the time I had seen the photo with its triple layers of chocolate meringue and creme patissiere I knew that one day I would have to make it. Well my friends that time has come and let me tell you it did not disappoint! The beauty of this recipe is that it can be made in two parts. In fact, I made the three meringue layers late one evening after I had put the kids to bed and made the chocolate creme patissiere the next day.

austrian raspberry shortbread If there is anything I am always on the prowl for–besides artichokes, cookie cutters and green anything–it is variations on classic recipes. It’s a sticky thing, of course, because the originals earned their prized state for being blissful the way they are. But I can’t help it–I see a twist, a curve, a departure, or in this case, once again, a grater and I can’t resist. In my mind, there are few cookie combinations as satisfying as a butter cookie with raspberry, and whether you make them into bars, sandwiches or thumbprints. But all varieties have a certain density that attracts shortbread-junkies like me, but repels those who want a less weighty cookie experience. This recipe magically ingratiates itself to both parties with the help of a food processor.
