Lest you think I’ve been avoiding you, I want to assure you that I’ve been busy in the kitchen, just not in a very productive way. This was an experimental cake. I really love the combination of dark chocolate and citrus, especially lemon, so I decided to find out what dark chocolate and pomegranate would be like. This cake has a wonderful moist crumb, and the slightly bitter dark chocolate plays against the berry tones of the pomegranate in an interesting way. That’s the key word, interesting. Not actually delicious. Kind of weird. Like the pomegranate curd I made that turned out a brownish taupe because of the mixing of the purple pomegranate and the yellow egg yolks. Who knew?
You can see I persisted in photographing this cake anyway, I so wanted it to be good!
But at least you know I won’t try to pull any fast ones on you. Like this morning’s Carrot Oatmeal Streusel Coffee Cake. Sounds great, huh? Yeah, well, not so much.
And this Beef and Brussels Sprout stew.
Or this Pumpkin Ravioli with Browned Butter and Sage.
Have a great weekend—I plan to spend the day far, far, away from the kitchen! 🙂
