Baking| Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers … on the fast track with Daring Bakers

“After eating chocolate you feel godlike, as though you can conquer enemies, lead armies, entice lovers.”
Emily Luchetti

Double Chocolate Dessert PopoversAnother month, another Daring Baker challenge; and panic attack as always. It was almost halfway through the month, and procrastination is not my ball game anymore. A hack attack on my blog set me back many days, and I was gasping for air. The Daring Kitchen offered huge respite by way of the theme … Quick Breads. Was music to my ears … and resulted in food for the soul – Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers.Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers

The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.

Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers

Double Chocolate Dessert PopoversMy inspiration once again stemmed from Renata @ Testado, Provado & Aprovado! at the forum. She posted the yummiest and airiest looking popovers which she made in ceramic pots. I had to make them, but by the time I got to the kitchen, the terrible teen suffered chocolate cravings big time. Studying for her grade 10 state exams has left her hungry 24 X 7 with cravings galore. {They begin today, the 27th}.Double Chocolate Dessert PopoversThe diet never leaves her though and I am thrilled to see her choose a banana over French toast on some days, a fenugreek flatbread {methi ka paratha} with a yogurt dip is suddenly popular. Broccoli is being ferociously chomped, all thanks to the net which offers better weight loss solutions than the hapless mother!Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers It works for me, so doubling the chocolate was offered most happily. “Food“, she boomed… “I’m hungers again“! I loved the idea of quick breads, the forum on the Daring Kitchen speedily inspiring this time. So much creativity and energy there this month, I was infected! Googling got me to David Lebovitz, and these were in the oven as soon as it was preheated! DELICIOUS, gooey and ever-so-chocolaty!

  11. Exams would make more hungry (than usual) I would so look forward to snack time. Your popovers look invitingly dark and dangerous too, another recipe for me to try from your space. Chocolaty and quick is really really hard to resist!

  12. How incredible do these look? Chocolate is so delicious but always so hard to photograph with all its brown colours, but you’ve managed to make these look so amazing. I would reach out and pluck one from the screen right now if I could!

    Best, Sandie

  19. These popovers look delectable!

    And so do the cinnamon roll-ups, mmm. I tried to make those once myself, but it was a big disappointment — too bready and not pastrylike enough, for some reason. I’ll be checking back for that recipe.

  40. manjeet says:

    I was not familiar with “popovers” as a dessert but the pics looked so amazing that I tried these out today..they came out nice but I am not sure how they should taste..Should they taste like muffins or a dense chocolate cake? Can you perhaps elaborate on that please? It’ll help me understand whether my attempt was perfect or not :)

    • Hi Manjeet, They were light and airy, more like muffins. Like most popovers, they must be served warm out of the oven to retain the feel of lightness.
      Hope this helps. Take care

      • manjeet says:

        Thanks for the prompt reply Deeba..Mine were not really popping over :) They were dense ..should I have added some baking soda or powder?
