Maine-iac Per Dozen
Chocolate Cakes With Vanilla Cream
Is there any way to quantify a chocolate cake? In this case, yes! Our chocolate cakes are made with Bensdorp chocolate from Holland. You throw in some butter and cream cheese to heighten the richness and you are on your way to the races. Of course there is some sugar in the mix but not so much that it disturbs the smooth, rich, deep chocolatey goodness from the Bensdorp. It’s brownie-ish with a slight crunch on the surface but totally cakey inside. The deep chocolate flavor is the big show here.
The filling is just as important as the cake. The cream is mostly butter, totally whipped up with our own marshmallow. We also use a vanilla paste that is thick like honey and chock full of vanilla beans.
We call this delight THE MAINE-IAC largely because Maine had the brilliance to name whoopie pies their state treat! It sounds so simple, chocolate cake with vanilla filling, but believe me, this is a flavor combination that speaks to your soul. You won’t be disappointed!
