A lot has happened to me during the past 3 years. My husband, the love of my life, died of cancer. I became a full time farmer and winery owner without my partner to help me. I was lucky to have a team who helped me get through the past 3 years. I couldn’t have done it without them. Then about 6 months ago I sold the winery and the vineyards. So now I am without a job. I bought a house “in town” and found that I like having neighbors besides the wildlife of Diamond Mountain. I’m on the edge of town so I still hear coyotes in the vineyard next door late at night and every morning a pair of fun loving ravens wakes me up. I haven’t been cooking much for the past 3 years but I’m starting to cook for little dinner parties again. And, I am starting to blog again. It’s just for myself as I don’t think anyone follows me anymore. I don’t have anything to sell (not even wine!) I want to share recipes that I have fun making. So here it goes…
CHOCOLATE POUFFLE’ (I am not sure whether to call it a souffle’ or a pudding so it’s a hybrid)
1 1/2 cups Nutella
3 tbs bittersweet cocoa
1 1/2 tsp ground espresso
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
- Line the bottom of a 7 X 11 baking dish.
- Pour the mixture into the dish and bake @ 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
- I am an almond lover so I usually sprinkle some slivered or sliced almonds on top of the batter before I put it into the oven.
Great with whipped cream on top.
