Cakes from Chocolate & Zucchini

Some of my favorite photos and recipes aren't in this blog, as I used to post my photos to picturing food. I'm going to start sharing these when school, work, and the band leave me with less time to bake. I hope they keep you entertained!

These recipes came from Clotilde's blog. They are a chocolate-pistachio cake and a simple butter cake with pears. Both cakes were fantastic; salted butter makes the pear cake especially rich and delicious, and the ganache adds extra elegance to the already striking 10inch pistacio cake.

The Chocolate Pistachio Surprise Cake recipe is here.

The Gateau de Mamy a la Poire recipe is here.
