I’m back! I was looking at my blog, and it has been 2 months since I blogged anything, and with likely the worst food picture I have ever taken in my life. Technically I did the Coq au Vin challenge for CtBF, but couldn’t find my dslr usb cable (of which a new one just arrived yesterday because I still can’t find it) to upload the pictures. Between the holidays, then travelling for work, then getting sick from travelling for work, and then losing my mojo from work-related things, I’ve been a mess. I also couldn’t find salt cod, and was not inclined to order it. I was also not inclined to buy a financier pan for this.
Anyway. Here we are. Valentine’s Day. And what would it be without chocolate? All I know is that Easter candy comes next, boy howdy. I made this cake, we each had a slice, and then the rest went into the freezer since we do Paleo during the work week. I am not keen on peanut butter or peanuts (observe: I did not chop peanuts for the top) and was concerned that it would taste strongly of it, but it really was quite mild.
The temperature gave me fits. I baked it originally on the low end, but it was very underdone when I tested it. I gave it an extra 10 minutes because it was so wet, but wound up then overbaking it ever so slightly. My husband didn’t notice, but I did!
All in all, it was ok. A good getting-back-to-it recipe, since I clearly needed to shake off the c0bwebs. I am glad to be back with you!
