Don't you wish you worked in my department?*

Food and cooking

Tomorrow, being as it is the last Friday of the month, is Random Dessert Friday at work. It is also one friend/coworker's last day, so I made him his favorite dessert:

Rice Krispie Treats

And another friend/coworker's birthday was earlier this month, so I wanted to make her a cake. Unfortunately, she can't eat wheat. Luckily, Chris came to the rescue with her One-Bowl Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe. (I mostly followed it - the birthday girl really likes her chocolate sweet rather than dark, so I used semisweet in the cake instead of bittersweet, and milk chocolate in the glaze instead of semisweet.) The recipe included that dreaded phrase: invert the cake onto a plate. I'm always afraid that my cake won't come out of the pan at that point or will fall apart or crack or something. So when it didn't, I was so proud of my inversion-onto-plate skills that I had to take a picture:

Flourless Chocolate Cake, Pre-Glaze

And here's the completed cake, smothered in glaze:

Flourless Chocolate Cake, Glazed

I think it will be a yummy Friday at the office tomorrow.
* Actually, in case anyone does wish they worked in my department: we're hiring a bunch of people. Leave a comment if you want more info.

Hi, Kat! Long time no see. Jen sent me a link to this post. Yes, I'd like to have more info about current openings. Any place you work just has to be interesting....

You'll have to let me know how it tastes! It looks wonderful. Mmmm... chocolate... I've done variations like that, too, depending on my target audience and what sort of chocolate I have in the chocolate drawer.

Oooh, yummy! I love to bake, but don't do it often unless I bring in the results to my co-workers. Maybe I may have to institute a day like this at my office!
