To brown the butter simply melt it over medium heat stirring it fairly often until it turns a nice deep golden brown. You will see brown bits at the bottom of the pan. That’s a good thing – you want this to happen!

Let the butter cool for about 5 minutes, then beat it with your sugars, egg and vanilla.


Let me tell you a little secret…the best part about adding the brown butter and chocolate chunks is they add something special to the cookie that you can’t quite put your finger on, and it’s that something special that keeps you coming back for more!

Double Chocolate Chunk Espresso Cake with Toffee Almond Glaze

double choc chunk espresso cake_121

Last night I was prepping for one of our basic Sunday Dinners. In my head is was going through the various parts of the meal, but I didn’t have a dessert.

It’s not too often I have this problem. I simply didn’t know what to make for dessert! No dessert on a Sunday, I feel a mutiny about to take place. :)

Oh, for the meal, (oven-baked lemon pepper tilapia, oven roasted Brussels sprouts, and seasoned pan-fried potatoes, heavy on season, a touch of salt, light on oil), just in case you were wondering. Nothing too grandiose. We like simple, basic food.

Back to dessert, I didn’t know what to make, but in the back of my head I was thinking maybe some kind of chocolate cake, but something different. My fellas always love a good chocolate cake!

This cake is delicious, comes together quickly, and is guaranteed to get a YUM from everyone having a piece!
