flawless Flourless Chocolate Cake

June 8, 2008

Almost flawless, and almost flourless. Ours had a little bit of both

chocolate

Based on an edible-glitter extraveganza I discovered in a local restaurant, we today tested this recipe from Delicious Days. Full details are available there

We used no-added-sugar chocolate and a 22cm springform tin. Some problems with burning around the bottom of the cake, probably due to my crazily-hot oven. I’ve added an oven thermometre to this week’s shopping lost.

Aside from that, deliciously gooey and exactly like the restaurant dessert. We’re remaking it next week to try and avoid the burning and introduce the glitter!

Sundays are for baking

June 7, 2008

We are Hannah and Sara and we like to bake.

We have decided to dedicate Sunday afternoons to this almost-forgotten joy, and will be sharing our triumphs and disasters with you here.

We plan to work our way through Leith’s Baking Bible, repeating every recipe until we can successfully complete it. When we are finished, we shall be true domestic goddesses. All recipes shall be from the book, unless otherwise stated.
