Milk Chocolate Baby Cakes


Oh, Baby...

I'm a day late, more than a dollar short, but all sins are forgiveable when chocolate is involved.
There's something extra virtuous about itty-bittyness, which might explain the current cupcake craze. These aren't cupcakes, though. They're tiny little bundt cakes, sweet and light and dripping with a milk chocolate ganache. With their shiny brown coating, with just a stitch or two of white from a powdered sugar sprinkle, they look almost like a football. And speaking of football, wouldn't you like to polish off a couple of these while you watch the game this Sunday? Me, too. Actually, me three or four. Click here for the recipe. (The recipe isn't up yet-if it isn't posted by this evening, I'll type it up right here.)

PS West had his seventh birthday this week. Help him celebrate by sending him to New York to compete in the Jif Cook-Off. Head over and vote for his More Morrocan Morrocan Peanutty Pitas. Just ten days left, so please be sure to vote every day.
