A Muffin with a Mousse Heart

Gateau chocolat Clemmo

Chocolate muffin or chocolate mousse? Both, please! Since we need to eat a little bit of everything, why should we choose? This dessert perfectly pairs a smooth cake and a light mousse.

The story of this cake begins in a Spanish restaurant in Seattle: Tango. Their specialty is a dessert called El Diablo: “A Bittersweet cube of sinfully rich dark chocolate graced with cayenne, spicy almonds, cocoa nibs and burnt meringue finished with a tequila caramel sauce”. Enough to make me crazy! I loved the mix of cake and mousse textures, and the spicy touch added by the Cayenne pepper is a welcomed surprise.  In France, we don’t eat much spice, and even fewer spicy desserts! For this reason, every time I add Cayenne in my chocolate mousse, it’s a big hit!

Here is my recipe inspired by this cult dessert!

This blog is earning more and more followers on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Thank you so much! You are the lights of my geeky nights and I wish you a lot of blondness & all the best.
