Daring Bakers’ Challenge: Chocolate Valentino

We closed on our very first house yesterday and my mom is in town to visit, so I barely have time to post that I even completed the February Daring Bakers’ challenge.  This is another month where I’m SO glad I baked early!  Let’s get the blog-checking text out of the way:

The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE’s blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef.  We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge.

Here are the results (sans ice cream – I’m waiting for my Cuisinart ice cream maker):

Chocolate Valentino Slice

I actually baked the cake for Valentine’s Day.  (When else is a heart-shaped chocolate cake more appropriate?)  It came together with only three ingredients and a mixer in mere minutes…  It was easy *and* delicious.

Check out Dharm’s blog if you’re interested in the recipe!
