Somewhere along the lines I totally forgot to post a recipe that I made back in October 2009. Don't ask me how I forgot to post. I just didn't. Since this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is a rewind, meaning we can post whatever we want. I thought I'd post my photos for the Cherry-Fudge Brownie Torte.
Isn't it beautiful? I didn't write much in my notes except for two things:
2) I loved the addition of black pepper!
This recipe was decadent. Dorie had a Black Forest cake in mind when she created this dessert. But instead of envisioning layers of chocolate cake filled with whipped cream and cherries, she opted to create a devilishly dark and fudgy brownie torte that even has some a spicy kick from black pepper. Then instead of a filling it just has a topping made from a delicious and creamy marscarpone mousse!
This was the first time I had worked with marscarpone and I am a fool to have not used it before. It is wonderful! I brought this dessert to my coworkers over at Shirley J and they loved it. It really was a such a treat.
You can get the recipe on April's blog, Short + Rose.
Check out what other rewinds happened this week. There is a huge variety!
