I thought I had already posted this one; it might be under Early American Cooking, but it can go here too!

Recipe Name: BISCUITS AU CHOCOLAT
Category: 18TH CENTURY
Serves: 6

SOURCE FARMER & FARMER

2 oz unsweetened chocolate (2 squares)
grated (I use Mexican chocolate)
8 egg whites stiffly beaten
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1/2 Cup flour

This recipe dates to 1750 (Farmer & Farmer). If you wish to be authentic, try this recipe with the chocolate available from period sutlers ; the chocolate is mixed with cinnamon and pepper similar to the chocolate of the eighteenth century.

Beat chocolate, sugar, & yolks together until thick & creamy. Fold in egg whites. Sift flour over mixture and fold in. Grease muffin tins. Fill half full with mixture. Bake at 325º F for 15-20 minutes or until tops are just firm. Cool before serving.

Chocolate Baklava

1 pound frozen phyllo leaves
1 cup light corn syrup

Filling:
1 pound chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 24- ounce package semi-sweet chocolate bits
1 cup granulated sugar

Syrup:
1 cup water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup honey

Preheat oven to 325. Thaw frozen phyllo leaves. Lightly oil the bottom and sides of a cookie sheet. Mix all of the filling ingredients. Place about 1/3 of the phyllo leaves on the cookie sheet. Cover with half of the filling mixture. Cover with another 1/3 phyllo leaves and the rest of the filling. Cover with the remaining phyllo leaves. If anything hangs over the top, tuck it into the sides of the pan.
With a serrated knife, cut through all the layers to make squares about 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches. Pour the corn oil over the entire pastry and allow it to soak for about 10 minutes. Lightly spray top with water to keep leaves from curling in the oven. Bake for about an hour or until golden. While it is baking, make syrup.
Boil first three ingredients of syrup for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in honey. When Baklava is finished baking, pour syrup over the pastry. Cover with aluminum foil. Allow the syrup to permeate the pastry for at least a day.

This is one of my kids' favorite birthday cakes:

CHOCOLATE AND BERRY TRAY CAKE

Ingredients:

250g butter, softened, plus extra
250g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
225g drinking chocolate powder
250g light soft brown sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tbsp milk
200g frozen berries (raspberries, blackberries and blueberries)

For decoration:

200g white chocolate, broken up
Fresh raspberries/or save some frozen ones if no frsh berries are available
Small pink marshmallows
Candles

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Grease and base line a 30cm x 20cm cake tin. Sift the flour, baking powder and drinking chocolate into a large bowl.

2. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Add the flour mixture and milk and gently mix until combined.

3. Spoon the cake mixture into the tin and poke in the frozen berries. Bake for 45 minutes, covering with a double layer of baking paper halfway through to prevent it browning too much, until risen and cooked. When you press the cake lightly, it should bounce back. Cool in the tin slightly, then turn out and cool on a wire rack.

4. To decorate, put the chocolate into a bowl. Rest the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water and leave to melt, stirring occasionally. Carefully remove the bowl from the saucepan.

5. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the chocolate in lines across the cake. Arrange the berries, marshmallows and candles on top before serving.

It's delicious! dribble.gif
