Indulgence

Today is sister-in-law's birthday--she has the joyous coincidence (not) of sharing her birthday with Tax Day, most years. I got the kids over here this afternoon, and we made a birthday dessert: Rose Levy Beranbaum's Brownie Puddle.

It's a brownie, yes, with Dutch-process cocoa AND bittersweet chocolate and cream cheese, light on the flour, and with pecans. Bake in a tart pan. Take it out of the oven and immediately poke holes in it with the handle of a wooden spoon, and fill the holes with bittersweet chocolate ganache. Keep adding ganache until the tart cools enough to not absorb any more.

We served it with a pile of fresh raspberries and a little whipped cream. I am vowing to make 4 Jazzercise classes this week in penance...

Sure, especially as I see it's on Beranbaum's sites The Cake Bible and Real Baking with Rose, so I don't even have to type it out. I used 85% Lindt Excellence chocolate for both the brownie and the ganache, which made it really dark and intense. I suspect 60% chocolate would be pretty good, too.

Isn't the Web wonderful? :)

Link bookmarked--they sound fabulous. I'm been meaning to get a copy of The Cake Bible one of these years...really should since cakes are one of my hobbies.

Tell her she shares her birthday with Emma Thompson. That may make her feel better about it.
