.: I’ve got chocolate

I am late. In fact this was done on November the 2nd. Apart from Halloween… è la commemorazione dei defunti. We remember people we have loved and lost. And this is my dark and sweet homage to a sweet sweet friend I lost very long ago, but never forget. She taught me to cook this great chocolate cake and she taught me I’ve got life.

and I gave my recipe to you just the same she gave it to me:

For the crust:

250 gr flour – farina
150 gr sugar – zucchero
2 eggs – 2 uova
100 gr butter
1 small spoon of baking powder

For the filling:

1 egg – 1 uovo
150 gr black chocolate (to melt) – cioccolato fondente
200 ml sweet cream – panna
3 spoons of sugar

cook: 180°C ++ for about 40 minutes (check the crust)

I know… it needs some work… melt the chocolate, melt the butter…

but hey: good things need some work.

Do the crust first and put it in the pan (butter and flour on the bottom)… no need to say it doesn’t have to be perfect…

then mix the ingredients for the filling

and place the cream inside

you’re done…almost. Be careful when cooking: it’s gonna grow pretty much… and then… get down later

do you think it’s not looking good ? you’re wrong

that’s the way it has to look… and you’ll love it

wanna make it even better ? reduce quantities for the crust… you’ll love more chocolate…

‘cause black is the best part. Ask Ms. Lauryn Hill

.: Hung up

Once a friend told me: “There is no carbohydrate that I can’t love”. That’s true. Well.. if you move like Madonna, you can eat whatever icecream, tart, pastry and cake on this planet… and I do !

Last week I tried this… with some fresh orange juice!

then I tried this “shell pastry”

and my last excess-food was an ice cream with black cherries…

.: Seven seas (sea 6)

Pasta comes from wheat, and crustaceans come from the sea, so pasta with lobster is a perfect wedding of tastes

you just would want more lobster in it. Anyway… shouldn’t you be satisfied with that great dish, you can always faint with the dessert: pesche (peaches) al cioccolato fondente e amaretto (amaretti and dark chocolate) with a delicious zabaione cream

my mum cooks peaches with chocolate and amaretti too and they can compete. Love you mum.
