Hello Choco!

So about an hour and a half ago I noticed King Arthur Flour posted this on their blog:

And after looking through that process, how could you NOT follow on through to the regular-format recipe??

Within minutes I was digging through the pantry and fridge for ingredients, and had the oven heating up.  Very simple recipe - and you don't need to use any of the name-brand products that KAF sells (don't get me wrong - I've bought and loved some of their stuff) - this works just great with that brown box/tub of cocoa powder, generic flour, and none of the Cake Enhancer.

Mmmm - look what just came out of the oven.

The place smells GREAT!  (And a little confusing, since there's also a rotisserie chicken carcass, veggies, herbs etc in the slow cooker making chicken noodle soup for dinner - this ALSO smells good, but chocolate and chicken together?  Eh.)

The batter was sooooo good - very similar to brownie batter, or maybe a cross between brownie and pudding?  Brett and I both felt that, if anything, all this will need is a dusting of powdered sugar.

After it's cooled enough to slice.

If we can wait that long.

No promises.

The first thin slice tasted great!

MOST of the much thicker second slice ALSO tasted great, but about halfway through I hit choco overload. Oof. ;-)
