Thomas Keller’s Chocolate Bouchons (French brownie cakes)2018-09-21
- Bouchon Bakery
Delicious chocolate brownie-like small cakes, a recipe from Californian star Thomas Keller
About this recipeIn a previous recipe, I told you about my niece Clara who lives in France, eastern side called 'Jura'
And although I go to visit her as much as I can, I unfortunately don't get to see her often since I moved to Southern California.
I am hoping that in a few years she comes visit her uncle in California...
And recently, my sister sent me a photo of Clara.
I was totally shocked to realize that my little Clara has turned into a teen in just 2 years.
That's what happens when you don't see kids growing up day to day
... And I remembered that 2 years ago, Clara and I spent a whole evening baking together, and that was absolutely greaaaat fun. I stumbled on these photos when I taught Clara to bake those French brownies
And so, Clara is going to show you today how to bake Chocolate "Bouchons", French soft intense and wonderful brownie-like cakes, a recipe of Californian star Thomas Keller.
"Bouchon" means cork in French. It also means a small traditional French restaurant in Lyon, the French capital of gastronomy, and that's why Keller called his restaurants "Bouchon"
