It’s been what you might call “a week” (actually it’s been a bit of “a year”) over here. My copyedited manuscript changes are on my editor’s desk though (hurrah!) and I’m ready to try to catch up with the rest of my life now (it’s amazing how many things pile up on your “to do” list when you step away from it for a few weeks…). In the middle of all that flurry of activity, I was pleased to be able to keep on top of my Cook the Book Fridays recipes from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen. Especially this one.
It’s a simply molten chocolate cake with a hidden base of dulce de leche (or caramel sauce). These came together in a flash (in one bowl, no less – my kinda dessert!) and only takes about 15 minutes to cook (the kind of dessert you can make when you have a chocolate craving and want to satisfy it like, now!). I left these in the oven 3 minutes longer because I don’t like the centres *too* molten and they were perfect (it was still lovely and gooey under the just baked crust). They were good the day I made them but didn’t fare too badly in the microwave the next day (15 seconds) which is good to know. Dangerously good to know…
Get the recipe for David Lebovitz’s Individual Chocolate Cakes with Dulce de Leche and Fleur de Sel on p 261 of My Paris Kitchen.
