Recipe: Chocolate–Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Ganache

Chocolate–Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Ganache When we shared a lovely photo of a savory pumpkin soufflé yesterday, you guys went gaga over it, so we're delivering even more of what you crave with this warm, soulful cake recipe from Kaushik Chowdury of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix. We're certain that you'll find it irresistible. Just make sure you use pumpkin purée instead of sweetened pumpkin pie filling—otherwise you'll have a cloying cake on your hands.

Anyone who has paid a visit to one of Jacques Torres's candy shops understands that the JBF Award winner knows a thing or two about the addictive sweet stuff. Here's a sneek peek of the menu: Hors d’Oeuvre Miniature Mole-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks Miniature Thyme, Aged Gruyère, and Chocolate Vol-Au-Vent with Wild Mushroom Ragoût Savory Chocolate Napoleons with Spicy Cream Cheese Chocolate Gougères with Gorgonzola and Walnuts Grilled Cocoa Nib–Infused Polenta with Chile-Spiced Beef Tenderloin Brunch Foie Gras with Pear and Chocolate

Recipe: Drunken S'more Cake

S'moreAfter posting an Eat this Word about s'mores last month, we heard from several readers about their favorite versions of this marshmallow treat, as well as requests for the recipe for Michael DiBianca's Drunken S'more Cake. We tested it, and we're happy to report that it's some seriously good stuff. A riff on the composition of a s’more, this dessert was the finale of chef DiBianca’s playful and flavorful Beard House dinner. His version calls for the nutty Nocello and Frangelico, but we think that fruity liqueurs, like Grand Marnier or Chambord, would work nicely, too. Whatever you choose, just be sure to top this treat with a mighty dollop of whipped cream.
