|The very decadent, very delicious Boca Negra, which literally translates to “black mouth"|
That brings us to this weeks pick for TWD ~ Baking with Julia, the very decadent Boca Negra, contributed by Lora Brody. I almost didn’t make it. We have been indulging in way too many sweets. However, we are staying on the beautiful Gulf coast of Florida, and my cousin and her husband (who live on the east coast) were coming to visit for a few days. It was Valentine’s Day, and she made a wonderful Shrimp Scampi, with gorgeous fresh shrimp she brought from home. So, dessert just seemed appropriate!
|Absolutely luscious…Perfect for Valentine’s day|
|Beating in the butter…this was where my cake started to come together|
|Beating eggs with ⅓ cup of sugar|
|Mixed together and poured into 9 inch pan to bake|
|I turned this cake onto a platter immediately after taking it out of oven…it cracked|
I turned the cake out onto a platter and it cracked a bit, but still looked good. It smelled amazing!
What could be bad? It’s pretty much pure chocolate mixed with butter, sugar, eggs and rum (I didn’t have rum, so I substituted some chocolate wine). I also didn’t make the cream. I served mine with vanilla gelato and blueberries! If you love deep chocolatey desserts, this one’s for you!! Simply irresistible!!
|OMG…this was amazing….a keeper for sure|
