Jessica@Literary, etc. is hosting today’s challenge with the following rules:
Food often appears in some format in the books we read and therefore we have a recipe challenge! There will be two options.
Option 1: Post a recipe from the book of your free eread that you’ve come across. Let’s say a character bakes a batch of chocolate chip bacon cookies. You can post a recipe for it.
Option 2: This option allows you to create a recipe or pair one with the book you’ve read or are reading. Reading a cheesy love story? Maybe macaroni cheese might be the thing. Book is a sinful delight? Pair it with a sinful dessert or dish. There are no limits.
Your post must include: Book’s title along with the author’s name. If you are using someone’s recipe (for example, you got a recipe from All Recipes), credit them and provide a link to the original source.
So the only one I could remember is this recipe I found in Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman. I got this for free a long time ago and read it weeks ago. I have never really tried the recipe, but Audrey claims that it is really good. This just really stuck to me because it was one of the few parts I liked about the book because I love sweets. And here is the recipe, taken directly from the book:
BRIDGET’S CHOCOLATIOUS CAKE
- 4 ounces super awesome (i.e. expensive) bittersweet chocolate
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- Preheat oven to 375°F and butter an 8-inch round baking pan. Line bottom with a round of wax paper and butter paper.
- Chop chocolate into small pieces. In a double boiler, melt chocolate with butter until smooth
- Whisk sugar into chocolate mixture. Add eggs and whisk well.
- Sift 1/2 cup cocoa powder over chocolate mixture until combined – don’t stir more than needed.
- Pour batter into pan and bake 25 minutes, or until thin crust forms on top.
- Let cool 5 minutes, then invert onto serving plate. Top with fresh berries, drizzled caramel or whipped cream if desired.
And here’s a picture of some chocolate cake~ This was a bad challenge. It made me VERY hungry for chocolate cake.
