Hi!
Today i found this blog and could not resist to share my experience with Rose’s recipes.

The last week i received from amazon the book Rose’s Heavenly Cakes and made the first try doing the Devil’s food cake.
It was totally a journey of discovery a new and real way of bake a cake!!! For the first time i got a recipe that tell the truth and even the share of secrets to achieve a fabulous texture, consistency and flavor, all in the same cake!!!

I’m a food photographer and of course I love cooking too grin. This is the photo of this cake.

P.S. When you bake a cake in another country (In this case Mexico), sometimes its a little bit difficult about the ingredients, but searching and asking have helped me to achieve this deliciuos cake.

Hi!!! administrator grin

Yes i did the Midnight ganache, the wait, its paid with the flavor!!! I will try this new bake method, thanks for the link. By the way i did not used the brandied cherries i voted for the flavor combination between the acidity of the strawberry and the deep chocolate.

And yes I will share more, because i also bought the pie and pastry bible and the bread bible wink.

So let’s go and bake!!!


P.S. Do you know the recipe of a strawberry salsa? I think that this cake could be served with a bed of it.

Oh that cake looks delicious.  Now I want to make it.  Not that I needed any excuse.  The photo is fab also.  Are you using a clamp to hold the spoon?  Welcome to the wonderful world of baking with Rose Levy Berenbaum.

As an FYI, this is one cake the Rose has alternate mixing instructions for out on the blog (http://www.realbakingwithrose.com/2009/11/devils_food_cake_on_page_99_of.html).  Some people find this cake to tender (crumbly), so she modified the mixing.  Some like the new mixing better, but others find it too fudgy.—ak

I did not know this…now I wonder which to bake as this looks plenty moist in this photo.

My favorite of Roses choco cakes is the one used in the bundt cake with the marzipan candles (made in two 9x2 layers).

  Interesting…. Chocolate Tomato Cake - Seriously… interesting.
