In a fit of limerance I told my new dating partner that I would make them a birthday cake of their choice since their birthday falls on Christmas Eve and they never get one. They want something chocolate and decadent. I used to bake all the time so I have the skills but life stress has zapped my energy. What are your easiest and most decadent chocolate cake recipes so I can please her in the spirit that I intended?
I can't seem to find a recipe I'm fairly certain I've seen in the past for peanut butter cups. I seem to recall that it involved not using any actual peanut butter, but starting with peanuts and grinding them up kinda coarsely with something else in them to get that weird, chunky, not-quite-peanut-butter consistency to the filling. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I am making a birthday cake to serve to a bunch of kids, and I just did the first stage of the frosting recipe: I melted 125 grams of chocolate with 75 grams of unsalted butter. Then I realized the next step involves raw eggs, which I'd rather not use in a recipe for young children. (Especially because it will probably sit out for a while before serving.) But I hate to waste the chocolate and butter. Without using raw eggs, what can I do to transform this melted butter/chocolate mixture into a delicious chocolate frosting? [more inside]
