Okay, so we have been making a lot of sweets to deal with the winter (banana bread, if this works out, to come). This was a weird one we slightly modified from (http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives007254chipotle_flourless_chocolate_cake.php).
We didn't have a proper cake pan with a detachable bottom, so we put the mix into these tin foil muffin containers. They are pretty awesome. I want to make an egg cup (http://sweetpotatofriends.blogspot.com/2009/01/egg-cup.html) in one soon!
Anyway, so this recipe is basically like a cake recipe, but there's no flour. This lead to problems for both Z and I. She was upset by how much she could detect the high egg content of them even after they were cooked. The texture was not to my liking (and also not very fudge like, so maybe we made it wrong). However, the whole chili pepper thing was really good. So, we decided that the next chocolate cake we make we're going to add a little. The key here is to get chipotle chili powder ... or at least a chili powder that isn't a mix of things but is just chili powder. When you get a bite of cake there's a little kick to it. It's the sort of kick that compliments chocolate well. I've seen chili chocolate and also bacon chocolate, which sounds ridiculously good to me.
So that's that. The picture turned out better than the food, but we've got a good idea for the future. I have the feeling that my blog posts will be less frequent and sound more like that for at least the first three months of the year.
