“Valentine’s Day is the poet’s holiday.” ― Ted Kooser.
This is a repost almost as this cake is very similar to the flourless rum cake that I have on here . The difference is that , this cake is toned down to make it just enough for two people with extra helpings ( because you will want an extra helping of this cake ) . It is booze free . And instead of the chocolate glaze , I paired it with a pomegranate sauce. Best thing ever !
I know chocolate on chocolate seems like an unbeatable combination ( probably is !) but this contrast is to die for. This cake from Pastry Affair is dark , deeply chocolatey and melts away in your mouth. The tart and sweet flavours of the pomegranate sauce cuts the richness of the cake is the most brilliant way possible . I am not kidding you. Try this cake and not want more. I dare you !
Now, when you are making dessert for yourself and that special someone (or your small family) , the last thing you want to do is putter around in the kitchen all day before and clean a sink load of dishes after. This gives you an elegant stress free plate of decadence . One bowl, one whisk and 30 minutes of your time. You have that…don’t you?
This is one of the best chocolate cakes I make . It is very rich and dark and decadent . It is not for someone who doesn’t love their chocolate. Or maybe they might start loving chocolate , if they have this. It is so perfect for an after dinner intimate celebration , even served by itself. The pomegranate sauce is the perfect addition for both the clashing flavour and that pop of colour . And that wee bit of elegance it adds ? 🙂
To love… tomorrow and every day!!
