This week for Sweet Melissa Sundays Sarah at Blue Ridge Baker picked Fallen Chocolate Soufflé Cake for us to try from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. This is a special recipe because it is the cover recipe for the book, and I was excited to give it a try. Thanks for the pick, Sarah! You can find the recipe here at Sarah's site if you do not have the book. I'm so glad to be back baking with SMS, I've missed most of the recipes this summer but can't wait to catch up and am looking forward to the rest of the SMS September recipes, we have some great picks coming up!
After baking shot...these baked up and fell just like they were meant to.
But after unmolding from the pan I had quite a surprise...
Aren't those crazy? I've never had anything turn out like that before! They did not stick, but were very oddly shaped. It was almost as if they were tied around the middle of the muffin while baking. So instead of a fancy schmancy Fallen Chocolate Soufflé Minis, I had funny looking UFO shaped chocolate treats. The kids absolutely loved them, yay! I'm glad I wasn't making them for a dinner party or something or I'd have been a little embarrassed -- because of the shape only though, the flavor and texture were right on to me, and me not being a big egg or soufflé person thought these were pretty good.
Thanks to Sarah for a wonderful Sweet Melissa Sundays pick :)
