Dark, deep, rich chocolate. None of that "milk chocolate" nonsense. And even less, white chocolate [not even really chocolate?]. But give me some bittersweet or dark chocolate, and I am one happy camper.
Make that a flourless chocolate souffle cake?
I'll be your best friend.
Valentines Day means people are
a) lovey-dovey to the point of irritation
b) broody to the point of irritation
Then there are those who eat their feelings. That would be me. Though, without the negative implications of the aforementioned statement. Rather, I eat because...that's what I do [have you met me?]. I just use Valentines Day as an excuse to make something decadent. This year, the dessert of choice was chocolate souffle cake with salted caramel sauce.
Noosh and I enjoyed a womantic dinner of Boylan burgers and sweet potato fries [carb-counting today? please.], and then
|poked holes over the top for the sauce to seep in|
This dessert is not for the faint-hearted. Really.
In terms of what to serve this with, I definitely suggest salted caramel if you want a sauce. Anything sweeter would be far too much, since the cake itself is so rich and dense. Lightly sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream would also be good choices.
Man. This cake is good. Like, really good.
Though, not sure I would recommend eating this after a heavy dinner of burger and fries.
It makes for a good treat though... if you haven't eaten anything all day...
Happy Valentine's Day!
