We have been cleaning the entire house today after some busy weeks. Suddenly i started to crave for chocolate, i don't know how it hit for me..I wanted something sweet, chocolaty so badly. When i searched my fridge i found the Del Monte Cherry which was left from my panna cotta dish. I decided to use that so i can post it for the recipe carnival.
I decided to microwave the cake because i cannot wait for another 20 mins to dig in. So i cameup with this recipe. I also made a wonderful coulis using Del Monte Red Cherry.
This coulis made the cake so fresh and yummy. I loved the warm cake which is drizzled with this yummy sauce, Traditionally the coulis should be strained, but i left it chunky because i want some texture in the coulis. I also drizzled this coulis over some icecream and had it, it was like heaven.
Someother option to use this coulis. Drizzle it over pancakes,waffles,brownies. The Option is pretty much endless
I made this specially for The Del Monte Blogger Recipe Carnival by Indi blogger. You can read more about their products and stuffs by clicking here.. I hope you will love this as much I did and tell me how it turned out for you.
