Pot de Creme

Calling all Chocoholics and coffee lovers!!! The perfect combination and so decadent you only need a couple of bites to satisfy that craving!  I am a self professed chocoholic! I can eat it any time of day and I usually have a small piece daily.  I was always a milk chocolate lover but now prefer a darker chocolate….especially with a little sea salt thrown in. This recipe has all that, and more!
I cannot believe that this is the first chocolate recipe I’ve posted but then, I’ve been focused on the blueberries….I’ll take a break for a day or two 🙂

I made this dessert this summer to rave reviews and it was the easiest dessert I’ve ever made.  No baking and so quick.  You put it in the blender, pour into pretty little dishes and it’s done! Garnish with some whip cream, throw a couple espresso beans on top and call it a day!  YUM!

Pot de Creme (make sure you say it in your best french accent!) Makes 8 – 10 servings

http://www.aroundthebaywithdd.com

  • 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup very hot strong coffee

Preparation

Place chocolate chips in a blender, crack in the eggs, add the vanilla and salt. Pulse 5 – 7 times or until the chocolate chips are partially chopped up.

Put the cover on the blender, turn on blender, remove the hold in the cover, and pour in the hot coffee in a steady stream.  The coffee will melt the chocolate and turn it into a silky, melted mixture.

Pour the mixture into individual ramekins, espresso cups or smaller mason jars.  Place dishes on a tray and refrigerate for at least 2 – 3 hours or until firm.

Garnish with whip cream. Eat slow and enjoy this rich, smooth, chocolate coffee indulgence!

Enjoy! 🙂

A super moist blueberry coffee cake with coconut oil and greek yogurt!
IngredientsFeatured image

  • 1 cup flour, I used white but you could also use almond flour.
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375F with rack in middle of oven.  Line the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan with parchment paper. Grease sides of pan with butter or cooking spray.

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined.

In a separate bowl, beat coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg and beat until light and creamy.

With the mixer on low, mix in the flour in 2 batches, adding the greek yogurt between each batch until combined.  Do not overmix.  Transfer cake batter to springform pan.  Scatter blueberries evenly on top.

Bake until tester comes out clean, about 20 – 25 minutes.  Let cake cool, in pan, on wire rack. Once cool, remove from spring form pan and slide onto cake plate. Dust with icing sugar and serve with whip cream or ice cream, if desired.

NOTE:  You can also cook this cake in a 9 inch round cake pan, for about 30 – 40 minutes.

Enjoy! 🙂  Loving this Life Living “Around the Bay” ~ DD
