If you’re anything like us, the mere mention of chocolate makes your heart sing. While we’d love to replicate Mandakini Gupta of Smitten Bakery’s pastry, we’re just not quite there yet. Her chocolate cake is the stuff of legend, as well as a staple at most of our birthdays. Her salted caramel mousse defies description, but if we had to, we’d be reaching for words like ‘unctuous’. Once you’ve dipped into her little pot of bittersweet, toasty sugar, there’s no going back.
Delicious, yes. Achievable by us mere mortals? Possibly not. Mandakini was, however, kind enough to share a recipe for moelleux au chocolat (molten chocolate cakes), that sound just as delicious, and considerably easier to DIY. Hallelujah!
