I know, I know… I’ve been baking a lot, and my uncontrollable sweet (and chocolate) tooth has overpowered the past month’s recipes. First brownies, then ice cream, followed by muffins, cupcakes, and more cupcakes… After this dessert, I promise I’ll post something savory!
When I bought my last cookbook, I admired each full-page photograph and showed my guy my favorites. While I flipped from one section to another, he stuck out his hand to stop at a page I hadn’t bookmarked. (It didn’t have chocolate, so why would I bother?…)
Now normally he avoids baked desserts like the plague (in preference to candy and sorbet), so when he expressed an interest in sampling that cake, I immediately jumped off the couch and rushed to the store. Although he nearly drank all of the orange juice before I could bake, I caught him with a cup to spare and presented him with a tangy bundt cake instead!
