A Lazy Idiot

Flourless Chocolate Cake

I planned never to have to say this, but I have neglected my blog and been lax on the posting.  I had the time, I even did some cooking, but I really just wanted to eat my food.  The kitchen has been up and down, and I think now is definitely at an up.  Meaning I can cook in the room that is supposed to be a kitchen.  There is like a stove and a cook-top and some sort of cabinets.  It also looks really good.  The husband and I like to stand in there at night and just stare at it.  It’s not done, and it’s not perfect but it’s getting there.

Chocolate Cake in Kitchen

I have been more motivated to cook, especially with multiple burners and an oven.  But I am still washing dishes in the bathroom so now is not yet the time to go crazy.  I’ve been holding back on the my deep, primal urge to bake a cake.  Until today as I was sitting on the floor staring straight on at my new oven (really 2 years old, but sitting unused in the shed) and decided it was time.  Nothing crazy, I will save my carrot cake with apricot and cream cheese frosting with layers of something curd for later.  So of course David Lebovitz to the rescue again.  I have been eyeing his chocolate idiot cake for a while.  So few ingredients but the combination cannot be wrong.  I of course did not have enough bittersweet chocolate, so used some unsweetened baking chocolate and added a touch more sugar.  Then I added some salt, and maybe some bourbon.  I did not use a springform pan in the water bath because I decided it was too hard, that is what makes it lazy idiot.  Fitting that I have also been too lazy to write blog posts.

    Bourbon for the win! Sounds yummy, even if it is chocolate. Can’t wait to see the kitchen in person this summer!
