This Death by Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing is simple, delicious…and sure to become a family favorite!
I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I grew up in a Southern kitchen. There was always something delicious baking in our kitchen when I came home from school. When I was really young, I just enjoyed eating all of the delicious creations. But as I grew older, I started taking an interest in how to actually make all of the tasty treats. (And of course I still enjoyed eating them, too!)
Today’s post is a second installment in Bon Appetit’s “Out of the Kitchen” series. When you think about it, cooking and baking is about more than creating delicious food. We all need to eat, but our best food memories are usually more than just the food itself. For me, those memories center around the other people involved. I still remember when my mother first taught me how to bake a cake (it was this Death by Chocolate Cake). And I have fond memories of the first time I made dinner for my wife in our new house (it was fondue set up on a card table in the middle of our empty living room). What are your favorite food memories? In their “Out of the Kitchen” series, Bon Appetit has written a number of articles that share a behind-the-scenes look into several popular NYC restaurants (including one where the servers hand-write each menu for each guest).
I’d love to hear about some of your food memories. What are your favorites? Do you have a recipe that’s been passed down through the family? (Oh, that reminds me of my grandmother’s chocolate chip cookies…I think I ate my weight in those when I was a kid!)
