Molten Center Chocolate Cakes

Chocolate lava cake

One way to make a molten center chocolate cake is to undercook your batter, preferably at a high temperature that will cause the outside of you cake to appear to be cooked. I don’t honestly think that this is the best way to make a dessert because while cake batter is tasty, I don’t want it for my dessert. I mentioned once before that I ... Read More »

Chocolate Whole Wheat Honey Cookies

Here’s one more Independence Day-inspired post, though only the icing is red, white and blue. The cookies themselves neither need icing nor have anything to do with the holiday. In fact, though they are entirely dissimilar from gingerbread cookies in terms of their ingredients, they have a taste and texture similar to gingerbread that would make them excellent in the winter, too. The recipe is ... Read More »

Chocolate Waffles

Usually, I’m more of a pancake girl than a waffle one, but I do enjoy the lovely crispness that waffles have – not to mention the delicious way that they soak up syrup. So, every once in a while, I like to do the waffle thing. These waffles have been lurking in the back of my mind since I first saw McAuliflower do them at ... Read More »

Two Tone Chocolate Peanut Butter Stars

I must say that I simply adore the look of these cookies. I believe that the recipe is originally from the Cookie Bible, but since I jotted it down some time ago, it is quite dfficult for me to say precisely.

It is leavened by the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar. The recipe originated in wartime, when there was a ... Read More »

Dirt Cups

The best part about being, say, under the age of 11 is that you get to order off the kid’s menu in restaurants. The main course offerings of kid’s menu are not the terribly exciting. In fact, many such menus are limited to plain hamburgers, grilled cheese and french fries. No, the thing that makes me nostalgic is the free dessert that comes along with ... Read More »

Raspberry Chocolate Mink

Gourmet Magazine’s September 2005 Cook the Cover contest ended yesterday. The featured recipe was fur a chocolate pudding cake called the Chocolate Mink. I couldn’t resist giving the recipe a shot, particularly when it was formulated for the convenient serving size of two portions. I decided that my addition to the recipe would be to add raspberries, since raspberries and chocolate make a wonderful combination. ... Read More »

Chocolate Pudding Cake

One of the more popular restaurant desserts is a molten chocolate cake. This can mean several things. Some stories speak of a chocolate souffle that refused to cook all the way through as the origin of this dish. This souffle managed to worm it’s way out of a ramekin and into the hearts (and onto the plates) of diners everywhere. A chocolate cake with a ... Read More »
