Back from London; Delicious Canelés; A Much Better Molten Chocolate Cake


I'm back from London. Arriving from truly summer-like London (sunny, 20 Celsius) to much colder and almost wintry Tallinn (rainy, ca 4 Celsius) last night was a bit of a shock, but as K. had baked a batch of canelés* to welcome me back home, I quickly warmed to the idea again :-)

I'll be back with a new post tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a photo of a molten chocolate cake/chocolate fondant pudding I had just before leaving for London, that was much better than the earlier attempt:



Same recipe, just shorter baking time (8 minutes) and darker chocolate (Lindt 82%). Yum...

Welcome back Pille! Can't wait to hear about your trip! :)

Uhh, jube kiusatuslik näeb välja see maius, aga niisuguse ohjeldamatu shokolaadisöömise tagajärjel tõuseb minul kahtlemata kaal. Kes teab, kui palju 1 kook kaloreid annab?

So how long did you bake them? I'd eat one of yours instead of those other ones. Welcome back! And it snowed here on Friday evening!!

Tere tulemast tagasi :)
Šokolaadivulkaanid tunduvad seekord eriti isuäratavad. St. lähen üritan oma isu jäätisega täita ja võtan mõne magusa asja lähiajal plaani :P

Muuseas, oled Sa neid jäätisega proovinud - piparmündijäätis vast sobiks ka koogikõrvaseks?

Joey - soon, I promise! I'll try to blog about bread tomorrow for the latest round of Waiter There Is Something In My..., and then it's time for London foodie memories!

Ülle - pole kahjuks aimugi. Me tegime antud kogusest 4 kooki, nii et eks tuleb ainete kalorsus kokku arvutada ja siis neljaga jagada..

Pene - 8 minutes, no more. We left them in the oven for 12 minutes last time, and that pretty much cooked the cake throughout. This version was more molten-like (and they're both ours:) I cannot believed it snowed last week!!! I was lucky to be away, I guess:)

Thredahlia - piparmündijäätis oleks hea, kuigi tavaline vaniljejäätis oli samuti imemaitsev. Valik on Sinu :-)
