Chocolate Malheur with a caramel centre - A quick and easy way to get a chocolate fix... maybe too easy!

It's been a while since my last post even though I have been baking, cooking and trying some delicious things in the past weeks! But I had a special visitor from Down Under and was on holidays, so the posts are coming in a bit delayed now! 

As I said, my boyfriend visited from Australia, we met in Paris and came back to Germany so I could show him my country. In Paris we did try some delicious food, but being back in Hamburg meant we could cook together again. He was in charge of the main course (Salat and chicken, perfect summer meal) and I was making dessert, which meant I could finally try the book (sorry, seems it's only available in German) Zum Dahinschmelzen - Kleine Kuchen mit flĂĽssigem Kern which has been standing in my bookshelf for a while but I never had the chance to make anything.

Green, green, green - Chocolate Espresso Cake with Salted Caramel Filling

I wrote a post about lots of green cupcakes with a bit of glitter the other day and I've been wanting to write another post that is about something green. To quickly tell the story again, my friend had invited me to her birthday party which was themed "green" and I had offered to bring something. 

She took me up on that offer and asked if I could make cupcakes. As a suprise for her and her flatmate I decided to make this cake, which I had found on "The Culinary Trial", which looked soooo delicious that I had been waiting to find a good occasion. Maike from the Culinary Trial got the recipe from Steph of "Kleiner Kuriositätenladen" and changed it a bit and I changed it a little bit again. (Unfortunately both blogs are in German...).
