About this recipe

In a previous recipe, I told you about my niece Clara who lives in France, eastern side called 'Jura'

Chocolate Bouchons


 
Chocolate Bouchons
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...

 
Chocolate Bouchons
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 so, feeling a bit down, I started looking at the photos back then when I visited Clara 2 years ago...

Sometimes, you want kids to stop growing up...

... 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"
