Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake
« on: April 21, 2013, 03:53:31 am »
I made this wonderful recipe from the Muttering Housewife Blogg.

http://mutteringhousewife.com/2013/04/15/chocolate-raspberry-pudding-cake-in-the-thermomix/



Just felt like something sweet.

 Didn't have dark chocolate but found some white chocolate, a bit of cooking chocolate and some chocolate buds in the freezer.  Added up to 260 gms of choc.

Used Kirsch as no Frombois.

Only used 200 GM butter as I could not  bring myself to use the whole thing.

Used  all I had left of frozen raspberries. Didn't even weigh them.

No instant coffee in this house so made a really strong  espresso.

Made up  the liquid by straining the juice from the raspberries, the 45 mls of coffee and the rest water to make about 340 mls of liquid.

This cake/pudding is very forgiving as I am just a tosser at baking.  By that I mean I rarely weigh and measure anything exactly and just toss stuff in the Thermothingy. So whatever I did worked out as the cake is really delicious. I had just a small piece and was happy. DH is stoked because he can now eat the rest.

It was a surprise to see something sweet from you Gretchen and it looks well worth the effort, so moist too.

It also helped clean out some bits in the freezer. It was really yummy but just not my thing. Maybe if I topped it with salami!

Have to have salt now so making a pizza. Yesterday I made an Arrabbiatta sauce so a simple anchovies, salami, onion pizza.

All 3 look rather good Gert. You have narrowed down a little.  ;)
