Have you seen that Sex and the City episode where Miranda has to dump a chocolate cake in the trash and drizzle it with dish soap to keep her from eating it all? That was me yesterday morning with the last of these chocolate cakes. They were so good and I couldn’t resist grabbing one every time I was in the kitchen. I finally had it, and dumped what was left in the garbage.
Fifteen minutes later I contemplated opening the trash can to see if there was one I could salvage. Thankfully, reason prevailed.
These little cakes are moist and tender, super chocolaty and enhanced by a healthy dose of strong coffee. You can’t taste the coffee in the cakes, but it really helps bring out the chocolate flavor. The glaze on the other hand, made with white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk, is deliciously scented with espresso. It’s a perfect pairing. Coffee lovers, you’re going to want one of these little gems alongside your next cup.
Why did I have to throw my last few out, that was stupid. Maybe I should bake a few more. Who wants to come over for coffee and a chocolate fix this afternoon?
