Two things to share. First a twist on the pulled pork recipe that I obviously can't get enough of because it's the third time I'm sharing it. Second a revised version of the petit gateau recipe I shared on food tag.

Cafe Rio Pork
I shared this recipe a while ago in a post where I talked about getting my crock pot from freecycle. you can get the recipe here
I made it again yesterday and instead of using red salsa I used mango salsa. I also just cut down the brown sugar to 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup. mango salsa is awesome and it really modified the taste. It's super good, try it.

Petit gateu
So I don't believe in posting recipes that I haven't tested and since I hadn't tested the petit gateau recipe I shared on my food tag I decided to test it out yesterday and here are some modifications.
(I made this late last night and we ate it so fast that no pictures were taken. this picture is from maisvoce.globo.com which is a Brazilian recipe site)

I cut the original recipe in half because I was only making it for Christian and I. If you can eat more than one of these babies in one sitting you deserve a prize. It's incredibly rich. So here is exactly how I made it last night and it turned out perfect if I can say so myself.

60 g dark chocolate chips
50 g butter (this equals to one small stick of butter)
1 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
1/8 cup sugar
3 teaspoons flour (I kept the 3 teaspoons of flour but I think next time I'll just try using 2 teaspoons)


  1. Melt the chocolate using bain marie method. use a wooden spoon to mix the chocolate so it will melt faster.
  2. After the chocolate is completely melted add the butter and turn the heat off. Mix until it is well integrated.
  3. beat the eggs, the yolks, and sugar until it is well mixed.
  4. slowly add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg sugar mixture.
  5. mix until all the ingredients are integrated.
  6. Add and mix the flour slowly.
  7. coat a muffin pan (5 muffins) with butter and flour and add gently pour the mixture so that it is a little more than 3/4 full. bake for 7-10 minutes at 450 degrees
  8. serve with ice cream. I served with raspberry sorbet and I think the sour taste of raspberry was perfect because the petit gateau is so sweet it was the perfect combination.


  1. I really really want to try this. I love chocolatey center liquid cakes. I got a pork recipe in the new Cook's Illustrated that I think you'll want to try.

  2. I made pork again yesterday. I need more porkk recipes for sure. send it over my way.
