Sumptuous Chocolate Cake!

February 19, 2011 at 10:05 pm Leave a comment

OK, this one has nothing to do with local food or organically grown veggies – but it tastes soo good!  Marcus (my youngest son) & I made a flourless chocolate cake for valentine’s day for Dad (plus a personal sized portion for a friend’s birthday). 

 It is the Chocolate Pave from Alice Water’s “The Art of Simple Cooking”, made with dark organic chocolate (of course), eggs and sugar.  Making it is a very sensual process – first the smell of the chocolate melting, then the color of the bright yellow egg yolks (mixed with sugar) going into the dark brown chocolate (see above), the careful folding of the fluffy egg whites into the mixture.. then to top it all, whilst baking, the delicious chocolate aroma permeating the whole house.  Lastly the wait for it to cool in anticipation of the first taste (with lashings of cream and ice cream)..mmmm
