TWD: Almost Fudge Gateau, Day 5 of "8 Days with Dorie"

This is the last chocolate recipe in my Tuesday's with Dorie marathon. Almost Fudge Gateau was chosen by Nikki of Crazy Delicious Food back in February, 2008.

I only got one bite of this little chocolate cake. Wanna know why?

OK, I'll tell you. Picture this... I cut a slice, taste it, share the rest with the kids, and then take the cake out to the front porch for some natural light, since chocolate desserts are notoriously hard for me to get decent photos of. I snap a picture, but decide it's too bright and I'll wait until later. I bring the cake in and set it on my desk.

Later, I walk by the office and notice the cake is GONE. Not a single crumb left. In shock, I call out... "who ate the cake!?". "Not me!" and "not me!" were the responses. That leaves only one suspect.


Little stinker hopped onto the chair and had himself a chocolatey feast. Yea, I know, dogs aren't supposed to eat chocolate. Fortunately I made a tiny little cake... maybe that's why he's still scouting around, dreaming of his next great chocolate cake caper.

So, I think this was good, at least the ONE bite I had was good. Almost brownie-like.

If you'd like to find out, Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours", or visit Nikki's blog. Or, you could always ask my DOG.

I'm so impressed you are completing every TWD recipe. That one looks yummy, too bad you only got one bite!

Your dog is adorable, even though he was naughty! We have to keep all treats on top of the refrigerator in my house since my dog is so food-obsessed.

It looks like a delicious brownie cake. My dog would do the same thing - they just can't help themselves!
