  • Black Pearl Layer Cake

    TREND: Exotically flavored chocolate

    \r\n

    WHO: Katrina Markoff, CEO of Vosges Haut-Chocolat in Chicago

    \r\n

    WHAT: Markoff, one of the first to infuse chocolate with unexpected ingredients, named this Asian-tinged creation after one of her most popular truffles. Its Japanese flavors — ginger, wasabi, and black sesame seeds — are the building blocks for an inspired cake.

    If you're not familiar with soufflé cakes, this dessert may look a little odd — but it's delicious. The cake is designed to be eaten once it has collapsed and cooled (just the opposite of a regular soufflé).

  • Super Peanut Butter Filled Brownies
    My most-requested dessert recipe. Moist brownie bottom topped with a thick peanut butter filling and topped off with a chocolate glaze. Please watch the brownies carefully and remove from the oven when toothpick comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it. If your toothpick comes out completely clean then they are overbaked and you will end up with a "cake-like" brownie. Glass pyrex baking pans have yielded the best results in my experience. Note: This recipe doubles beautifully!
