Poor Frodo, he has become bewitched by the power of the precious......yet again.....
This is not common knowledge, but Frodo has a serious chocolate addiction problem.
He can't seem to get enough of the stuff, and the Almost-Fudge Gateau sent him over the edge!Technically, this week's recipe for Tuesday's with Dorie is Creme Brulee. The recipe calls for the use of a butane torch, and I do not own one. The option was given to make a previously done recipe, and so we rewind to the Almost-Fudge Gateau recipe featured on pages 218 and 219 of the baking mega-book, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. The recipe was originally chosen February 19, 2008, a bit before my time :)
This cake is scary good, and those who cannot handle serious chocolate desserts should only consume this confection with extreme caution.
Frodo was not careful, and in his chocolate induced haze failed to notice something sinister. Who will carry his burden? Who will ensure that the ring is destroyed? Methinks Sauron is behind the chocolate!
