This past Tuesday I didn’t get home until nine thirty at night. I needed to make a dessert for a birthday at work the next day (a tradition I’ve tried to keep for the last four or five years), but I knew that I couldn’t stay up for hours that night. These little french fudge cakes from How to Eat Supper by Lynne Rossetto Kasper are a good go-to dessert. The recipe makes six, but doubles easily. It’s the kind of dessert you can put together with ingredients you have on hand – no mixer, short baking time – and they are divine right out of the oven with gooey, melty chocolate on the inside.
I find that I turn to this cookbook a lot for quick, easy, original dinner ideas (and the occasional dessert.) I’m looking forward to picking up a copy of her latest cookbook as well.
