chocolate, chocolate everywhere
There are many versions of devil’s food chocolate cake and among the ones I’ve tried, this is the one I like best. It’s made with cocoa and semisweet chocolate both mixed in boiling water. According to the Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum, water allows for quick release of full chocolate flavor.
But there’s more. Inside the cupcake is a chunk of bittersweet chocolate. When the cupcake is eaten at room temperature, the chocolate chunk also gets soft, making this a variation of the molten chocolate cake without the gushing gooey center. The cupcake is then topped with a bittersweet chocolate glaze marbled with white chocolate. With all the chocolate in one small cupcake, I think this qualifies for the “died-and-went-to-heaven” dessert category!
