I am proud to say I made it through 1 week only making dessert twice.
Leftover desserts is a whole different issue. Darn the system.
This recipe is adapted from the Sprinkle Bakes blog, thank you Sprinkle.
Chocolate-Honey Cakes [
First adapted from a Nigella Lawson recipe, then from Sprinkle Bakes
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 sticks soft butter
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
4 oz. chocolate, broken into pieces, or chocolate chips
1 cup very hot water
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Grease or line a jumbo muffin tin (should make about 8 jumbo cakes)
- Melt 4oz. of chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals until smooth. Set aside.
- In mixer beat together sugar, butter, honey, eggs, flour, baking soda and cocoa until just combined.
- Add melted chocolate and beat again briefly.
- With the mixer running, pour in the hot water. Process until smooth. Batter will be thin.
- Fill each cup 2/3 full and place into the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When done, the cakes will spring back when pressed in the center and a toothpick tester should come out clean. Let cool completely.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
6 oz. Semisweet chocolate chips ]
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- In a small saucepan, bring water and honey to a boil.
- Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Whisk until well combined.
- Add confectioners’ sugar and whisk again until smooth.
- Remove the cakes from their pans and/or liners.
- Flips cakes upside down so they are sitting on their rounded tops. Using a small sharp knife, cut a hole in the center of each cake making sure not to cut all the way through, remove the small piece.
- Pour glaze into each hole until it over flows.
- Let stand for 10 minutes so glaze can set a bit.
This cake was from the fridge that is why the center is so solid looking. I had a fresh one I was taking pictures of (see photo at top of post), but then I turned around for one second and my puppy somehow got to the cake...I now know that if my dog eats chocolate she will not die.
