Sofia attempting a cake concoction of juicy summer berries and a bittersweet chocolate-coffee combo? It’s more likely than you think. As the end of summer approaches, taking advantage of every blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, any-and-every-kind-of-berry has been my number one priority besides y’know, school (gotta love college application season!). And so I’ve attempted this lovely, minimalistic berry chocolate espresso cake.
For the past three years, I have competed in a cake competition held by this non profit organization that I volunteer for called Cake 4 Kids.
This year I decided to make this gold and ivory rose cake! I chose to do my favorite dark chocolate cake with a delicious homemade strawberry whipped cream.
Crepes have always been a favorite dish of mine whether it was eaten savory or sweet. Although I enjoy both, I think I’d prefer the sweet to the savory (surprise, surprise), so today I have brought to you my favorite whole wheat chocolate strawberry crepes!
Whenever I would go out to have a crepe, chocolate strawberry was always my go to. I just can’t resist chocolate strawberry anything, so I decided to try it out for myself and see how it turned out.
Valentine’s Day is here and you can’t spend the day without making these wonderfully chocolatey lava cakes.
Molten lava cakes have been a favorite dessert of mine ever since I was little. I clearly remember the first time I ate one; I was on vacation in Whistler (a beautiful town in British Colombia), with my family and the four of us had to share one little lava cake. I remember the hot chocolate oozing out with vanilla ice cream melting into the warm cake, my nine year old self wondering how in the world did they get the center of the cake all melty and yummy.
Thanksgiving break happens to fall around the same time as my dad and my little brother’s birthdays. My brother’s birthday came first which meant I had to somehow find the time to make a cake for him.
Last week, my aunt came all the way from Pakistan to visit my family here in California. I of course had to bake a “Welcome to California” cake, so what better than this decadent naked dark double chocolate cake paired with my favorite vanilla cream cheese frosting? Nothing. Nothing is better than this.
It didn’t hurt that my aunt is also a chocoholic like me and my brother ;).
It’s time I show you how to make chocolate ganache! Chocolate ganache is one of my absolute favorites. This is partly because of how easy it is to make and partly because it’s delicious.
You only need a couple of ingredients. Chocolate, heavy cream, and optionally vanilla extract. That’s it.
