December 22nd, 2010 | Category: Chocolate Two ingredients (seriously, only chocolate and water) and five minutes later, you will be eating The Best Chocolate Mousse of Your Life. I promise. And you don’t even need any fancy kitchen gadgets. Patience and a bit of elbow grease are required, but we always need those in the kitchen, right? This amazing discovery was made by the famous French chemist, Hervé This, who is also known as the man who unboiled an egg. Since the recipe has only two ingredients, it all comes down to the quality of the chocolate you use. Don’t take this as a mousse recipe only. You can also flavor it with spices like cinnamon or cayenne pepper or add a tablespoon of liquor like Grand Marnier, Chartreuse or Tia Maria. Or boil the water first, take off heat, place a couple of Earl Grey tea bags, let infuse and then use it as your liquid. The most important part of the recipe is achieving the right consistency. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sex in a Pan Sex in a Pan – crazy name for a dessert, but it’s one of the best desserts you’ll ever have, it’s mostly a pudding dessert with a crunchy pecan bottom crust. Don’t laugh at the name of this dessert! OK, you can laugh, it is funny. I have no idea why it’s called sex in a pan, maybe because it’s so good. Strawberry-Yogurt Popsicles Summertime! Is there anything better than a cool, creamy popsicle on a scorching hot afternoon? Or for that matter, a scorching hot morning. These fruity yogurt pops can serve as both breakfast and afternoon snack, a fact to which I can personally attest. I recommend having a batch in your freezer at all times.

The Family Kitchen I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Tiger Cake (Marble Cake) I had a chance to bake some traditional cakes (knowing they'd get eaten) whilst my parents were visiting us the other week. Tiger cake, as it is known in Finland, didn't used to be my favourite growing up, but I've finally discovered the joy of these simple 'coffee cakes' Finns love so much. It's these traditional recipes I'm most fond of: basic ingredients and no fancy machinery needed. Tiger Cake 200g butter (organic) 160g raw caster sugar

Whipped Chocolate Caramel Ganache recipe on Food52 Author Notes: I actually discovered that if you whisk or whip ganache it turns into a fluffy spreadable concoction. I like using this because it's not too sweet, easy to spread and decorate with. The chocolate caramel gives this ganache a buttery deeply delicious flavor. This icing is light, much lighter than a standard American buttercream, closer to the consistency of a swiss meringue buttercream but without the eggs. Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream Recipes» Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream We all want to be a little healthier. Let's be honest, you can't live on Slutty Brownies (and the world is a sadder place for it).

Easter Cupcakes I watched my Grandmother’s face when she realized that I hadn’t handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. “Crack it on the table,” I told her. Eggs were cracked, cupcakes were eaten, and I was perceived as a cupcake Houdini.

Chocolate Brownie Pudding Chocolate lovers – this one is for you! It’s seriously the most decadent and rich dessert I have ever eaten in my entire life! And man was it good. I mean how can you go wrong with butter, chocolate, Kahlua and ice cream? Right! Marzipan chocolate sushi I might be a few years late making candy sushi, but it doesn't make it any less fun. I think these would make an eye-catching dessert at a dinner party. Yes they are a bit fiddly, but they are definitely worth the trouble! Without any further ado, here's the recipe I found in an old Anna magazine (Finnish equivalent to Woman's Day). Marzipan chocolate sushi(makes 24 pieces) 150g marzipan

Rich & Ruffled Chocolate Celebration Cake Happy Thursday! I’ve been eager to talk chocolate cake with you, ever since my post on Classic Vanilla Butter Cake. If you read that post, you might recall that I mentioned my husband and I often debate which cake is a bigger crowd-pleaser: chocolate or vanilla. He’s a vanilla man, and although I used to be a full-on and devoted vanilla lover, my heart is now true to my all-time favourite chocolate cake recipe: Rich & Dark Chocolate Cake. It’s simply the yummiest, richest, most delicious cake recipe I have (not to mention the easiest).
