Barefoot Contessa choc/sea salt cake w/caramel?
I read a reference to this cake in a magazine interview with Giada De Laurentiis. I looked on the Food Network website but could find no reference to it.
Does anyone know if this recipe is in one of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks? If so, which one? (I'd camp out at Barnes & Noble and read indices, but don't have that much time . . .)
Thanks for any info.
Although I don't know the answer to your question, I can tell you that the September 2008 issue of bon appetit has a recipe for chocolate cake with fleur de sel caramel filling. Although it's on my to do list, I haven't made it. As far as Ina goes, Amazon sometimes has tables of contents available for perusal. Don't hold me to this, but maybe check the newer ones first - I've checked most of the older ones out of the library and don't recall seeing this recipe.
There is a cake called "The Sweet & Salty Cake" in the cookbook "Baked" [excellent book by the way]. It is by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. One of them was a guest on Martha recently. It has a salted caramel icing with chocolate cake layers. Everything I have made from this book has been delicious. I can only imagine this would be as well.
I did see the Contessa make salted caramels on an episode a few weeks ago. They looked delightful.
