A few weeks ago, we had my dad and step-mom over for dinner to celebrate their birthdays. We decided this would be a grand opportunity (either we were slightly delusional at the moment of decision or we are really this insane) to make both Julia Child’s Boef Bourginon and the infamous Chocolate Almond cake. We could’ve done an entire blog about the beef alone, but decided that everyone loves cake. So here goes…(oh and by the way, the beef truly was a veneral masterpiece of flavor).
Baking away for a short 25 minutes.
The finished cake decorated with sliced almonds.
