Savouring the Moment

Food senses if you are rushing it. It won't be rushed, folding needs time, you stir slowly and generally food tastes better if you cook it whilst you are holding a glass of wine and listening to Madeleine Peyroux or Norah Jones, which slows down this process even more. Rushed food is dirty fuel. It will burn to spite you, to remind you to slow down.

These cakes though, can take lots of beating and you can chop the hell out of the chocolate for the chunks. You can basically dump it all together and they still turn out well. Just slow down to eat them, savour each chunky chocolate bite you find.

They are now a firm favourite with my friends that I gift them to, so that I don't eat them all for breakfast! And yes, I have posted this recipe before... that is how good they are!


  1. Love Madeleine Peyroux and Norah Jones both! Very similar style is Melody Gardot, whom I've just discovered. Try her next time you're looking for a new artist to savor the time and cook with.

  2. thanks for the tip-need some new music!
