This week's chef in the Food Network Chefs Cooking Challenge is Nigella Lawson and, if you were like me, it was very hard time picking just one recipe (OK, two, I needed to try her Cherry Cheesecake too!) . I settled on the Chocohotopots. This is definitely going into my dessert file. They are heavenly and, with a prep time of less than 5 minutes, they can't be beat. I didn't stray from the recipe one little bit. They are very rich, very chocolaty and a lot of fun. Cake with hot fudge sauce built right in. Try them. You will not be sorry you did!
Recipe courtesy Nigella Lawson
1 stick plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, with 60 percent cocoa solids
3/4 cup superfine sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Special equipment: 4 (2/3 to 1-cup capacity) ramekins
Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
The Cherry Cheesecake was outstanding for a no bake cheesecake! The only change I made was to make individual ramekins instead of one big one. I had to try it because Tomoko, the Japanese student that is staying with us, says cheesecake is her favorite. We loved it. She loved it. I will be making this simple and yummy dish again!
