The Best Chocolate Cake

The Best Chocolate Cake
The Best Chocolate Cake is combines cocoa and coffee to create a chocolate lover’s dream. The rich buttercream frosting makes it perfect! We’re a family that loves to double down on chocolate. Peanut butter is a favorite, too, and my No Bake Cookies combine both with oatmeal. But since there was a birthday, I felt like I really needed cake. For birthdays, we have to do it up right by making my version of cake bliss. My family enjoys watching me flit from one thing to another like I’m their own personal reality show for entertainment. They love to point out when my missing spatula can be found at the computer desk, or my phone in the pantry, and helpfully letting me know that the oven timer has dinged at least 15 times. I also like to do things in excess – you know a little mound of frosting will never do in this household. I need to swirl on a pile of it on top, and then top it off with ganache just for the fun of it. I started my chocolate cake adventure by baking this cake – twice.

s’more pie A year ago, I made s’mores from scratch and brought them to the Memorial Day barbecue on my friend Jocelyn’s roof, celebrating the thousands of other hottie uniformed types that had sailed in for Fleet Week. [I just spelled that "Weak." It's all so telling, innit?] We assembled them from Nancy Silverton’s graham crackers from the La Brea Bakery cookbook, as featured on 101 Cookbooks, [which were, incidentally the most accurately-flavored homemade graham crackers I've baked, much closer that the ones I'd attempted a couple years ago from Retro Desserts] and Thomas Keller’s marshmallows, as featured on Cooking for Engineers, and packed them up with skewers for toasting and giant bars of Hershey’s milk chocolate (exactly what we used in summer camp). Second only to the men in uniform, they were the hit of the party. Or, you would be if I were not making it up to you today with something I declare an even bigger hit: S’more Pie. I was dead wrong on each concern.

spice bundt cake with cinnamon glaze A spontaneous trip to the local kitchen supply store led me to impulsively purchase a bundt pan. Although I considered testing out the pan immediately, I waited a full 24 hours before whipping up this spice bundt cake with cinnamon glaze. The new pan is wonderful, and my mind is already full of ideas for future variations – expect a cranberry-orange bundt soon! As for this divine cake, my only regret is not making it a day earlier. The spices come through nicely, and a warm slice savored by the fire takes the chill out of a cold evening. Spice Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze Batter 3 1/2 cups flour 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp allspice 1/2 tsp cardamom 1/4 tsp ginger 1/4 tsp nutmeg pinch of cloves 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 tsp vanilla extract 4 large eggs 1 cup low-fat buttermilk 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce Cinnamon Glaze 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 1/2 tsp water

Frozen Berries With Hot Chocolate I couldn’t suppress a smile when a friend of mine raved about this ‘special’ dessert she had eaten during one of her recent trips to London. “Frozen fruit with warmed up cream?“, I smirked. “You’re kidding, right? She shrugged her shoulders, waved her hand and said that when she ordered it, she couldn’t believe something so easy could taste this fantastic either. I agreed with her. So here we are… Ingredients: 1 cup strawberries 1 cup raspberries 1 cup blueberries 5 tbsp heavy cream 3 oz white chocolate Optional: 1/8 tsp vanilla extract (I didn’t feel it needed it) Directions: It’s no rocket science, really. Clean the fruit. Put it in the freezer and leave it there for at least 4 to 5 hours. Combine the heavy cream with the chocolate and either melt it au bain marie, or use your microwave. Pour the hot chocolate sauce over the frozen berries and serve immediately. And let me tell you what: I can’t think of enough superlatives to describe this incredible dessert! Make it this weekend!

The Pastry Affair - Home - Red Wine Chocolate Cake I've always had a vision of myself as a great connoisseur of wines—to be able to tell the subtleties between grapes grown from varied regions or, more rarely, the minute differences in the same wine year to year. I'm not a great connoisseur of wines. In fact, the word I and connoisseur don't belong in the same sentence. While I love a full-bodied glass of wine, I'm hopeless when it comes to actually describing what I'm drinking. Shamefully, I must admit the way I can tell wines apart (and if I enjoy them) is whether or not they taste like "church." Now that is certainly nothing to brag about. Nevertheless, while visiting the Tuscan countryside in Italy a few years ago, I decided a wine tour was absolutely necessary. My friend and I ended up choosing a wine tasting combined with a bike tour of the countryside. However, reality was much different from our daydreams, but no less of a story to tell. The day started out bright and fresh. This is an adult cake. Yields 9x5-inch loaf

Brownie Batter Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes 98K+Pin It With Outrageously Rich Chocolate Indulgence Frosting. AKA The Mega. Extreme. Chocolate. Overdose. Almost immediately after making the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, I got the idea for a rich, decadent massively chocolate brownie batter cupcake, and I haven’t been able to get them outta my head since! To all the chocolate lovers in the house… This is for you. It all starts with the brownie batter – this is seriously one of my favorite chocolate batter mixes ever. It only calls for 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk though, and since I hate recipes that only call for a little bit of something in a can, leaving me wondering what the heck I’m supposed to do with the rest of it, go ahead and make this easy, no machine required homemade ice cream. Use your trusty 1.5 tbsp scoop to drop spoonfuls of brownie batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze overnight. The next day, get ready to bake the best chocolate cupcakes ever. Mmm, chocolate chips. Here it is.

Gooey Chocolate Coconut Cupcake! This cupcake should be called DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN! What a combination....Coconut and Chocolate!! I found this great store bought Coconut spread with Coconut Flakes by Deluxe in a German supermarket called Lidl, here, in Greece! (For all my Greek and foreign friends- a MUST get) Delicious!! The whole thing was soooo gooey- it almost melted in your mouth! Hints of Coconut Flakes would give you a subtle crunch and the Creamy, Velvety Chocolate Ganache would just smooth it away! Of course, this one is empty! Unforgettable!!!.... Billie’s Italian Cream Cake Recipe Dear Sweet Billie From My Church kindly shared her Italian Cream Cake recipe with me today. And now, because you’re equally dear and sweet, I’m sharing it with you. I’ll bake you one soon with lots of detailed photos, but for now I’ll just revel in the leftovers and simply share the recipe—which really speaks for itself. If you’ve never listened to me before, and I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t, please listen to me now: You want to make this cake. Thank you, Billie! I love you, Billie!
