Rainy weekends in Singapore usually mean a lot of baking. This weekend happens to be full of chocolatey goodness. There was a massive Dorie Greenspan triple layer Devil's Inside Out cake to celebrate Aunt Virgie's bday, some chocolate nests with speckled eggs for Easter and older chocolate French macaroon photos to appreciate. No macaron baking for me when it's humid and sticky. I'd rather sit back and enjoy another movie from the bf's library (this time it's Focus Feature's bio on Harvey Milk, which was fantastic).
One word. Addictive. It only takes a favorite flavor to draw you back in
Dark chocolate nests with speckled eggs
And finally, the show stopper triple layer Devil's Inside Out Cake. Dorie's recipe called for 8" pans and because I only had a 9" one, I ended up doubling the recipe to make 3 layers!
Nothing like a tall glass of milk and cake before bed

Pure Dessert by Alice Medrich for that NorCal feel I miss so much
Can't wait to devour these.
