Black-Bottom Cupcakes!

For the filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (I used mini chocolate chips)

For the cupcakes:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
5 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch-process)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup unflavored vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Make the filling: Beat together the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the chopped chocolate pieces. Set aside.

Make the cupcakes:
1. Preheat to 350°F (175°C). Butter or line a 12-cup muffin tin.
2. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla.
3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, stirring until just smooth. Stir any longer and you will over mix the batter and end up with less-than-tender cupcakes.
4. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Spoon a few tablespoons of the filling into the center of each cupcake, dividing the filling evenly. This will fill the cups almost completely, which is fine.
5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops are slightly golden brown and the cupcakes feel springy when gently pressed. These moist treats will keep well unrefrigerated for 2 to 3 days if stored in an airtight container.

Makes 12 cupcakes.

Napoleon Of Tuna With A Mosaic Salad
For the Mosaic Salad
◦2 large artichokes, rinsed
 ◦ Juice of 2 lemons
 ◦1 large tomato, peeled, cored, split horizontally, seeded with a teaspoon, in 1/8-inch dice
 ◦4 large white mushrooms, very fresh and firm, caps only, in 1/8-inch dice
 ◦1 small avocado, firm but ripe, split, pitted, peeled, in 1/8-inch dice
 ◦1/4 cup small black olives (Niçoise), pitted and coarsely chopped
 ◦3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
 ◦ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 ◦2 tablespoons chopped chives
 ◦1 bunch watercress of mâche, leaves only, cleaned
For the Napoleon of Tuna:
◦6 thin slices white bread
 ◦1 clove garlic, peeled
 ◦8-ounce slice tuna fillet, sushi quality, center cut, about 1 inch thick, well chilled (when serving raw fish, you must buy extra-fresh fish of the highest quality and serve it the same day)
 ◦1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
 ◦1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
 ◦1/2 tablespoons finely minced chives
 ◦ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the Napoleon of Tuna:
2.Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 325°F.
 3.Stack the slices of bread and trim off the crusts. Cut the square bread stack into 2 even rectangular ones.
 4.Place the 12 pieces of bread in a single layer on a baking sheet with a rack or another pan on top to prevent them from curling when drying. Bake them in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden.
 5.Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Carefully rub each dried toast with the garlic clove and discard the garlic or chop the clove and add it to the vegetable salad.
 6.With a sharp knife, cut the cold tuna at an angle into 12 thin slices 1/4 inch thick, about the size of the toast. Place the tuna slices on a plate and season them with the lemon juice, olive oil, chives, and salt and pepper.
 7.Place a slice of tuna on each slice of toast and then assemble these to make 4 napoleons of 6 layers each (three toast, three tuna).
9.Place each napoleon in the middle of a chilled individual serving plate.
 10.Evenly spread a thick layer of vegetable salad on top of and around each napoleon.
 11.Place a small, right bunch of watercress or mâche leaves on each vegetable-salad-topped napoleon.
 12.Drizzle the sandwich and plate with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and remaining lemon juice.
 13.Serve immediately so that the toast remains very crisp.

Devil’s Food Cupcakes!!!
 2 sticks butter
 9 oz. chopped semi-sweet chocolate (1 1/2 cups chocolate chips)
 1 3/4 cup sour cream…
 1 1/2 cup sugar
 6 eggs
 1 teaspoon vanilla
 2 cups cake flour
 3/4 cup cocoa powder
 3 teaspoons baking soda
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 2 teaspoons baking powder
 Preheat oven to 375º. In a microwavable bowl or double broiler, combine the sour cream, butter, and chocolate. If using microwave turn down the power a little and stir every 45 seconds or so. Heat and stir just until chocolate is completely melted. Beat together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla and add to the chocolate mixture, mixing well. Sift in the flour, cocoa, soda, salt, and powder and fold together until well combined and no lumps remain. Fill lined muffin tins about 3/4 full and bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
 Chocolate Buttercream
 1 lb. butter (2 cups)
 12 oz. chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (2 cups)
 Melt together in double broiler or in microwave with power turned down a little (in case you haven’t noticed, I always like to turn down the microwave heat when I’m melting chocolate). Whisk together until combined. Throw it in the freezer while the cupcakes bake until it’s pretty firm. Beat for at least 5 minutes until fluffy. Frost cooled cupcakes immediately and then chill. I suggest serving them cold. That’s how they’re the best.

Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce
1 bunch of asparagus (about 1 lb)
10 Tbsp unsalted butter (1 stick plus 2 Tbsp)
3 egg yolks
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt (skip if using salted butter)
Pinch of cayenne
1 Prep the asparagus. Break off the tough ends with your fingers. Bend the asparagus spears near the end and they will break naturally where the spear is no longer tough. For an elegant presentation of the spears, use a vegetable peeler to peel off a very thin layer of the outer skin of the lower two to three inches of the asparagus spears. Prepare a large, shallow pan (with a cover) with a half inch of water and a steamer rack.
2 Prepare the Hollandaise sauce. Melt the butter in a small pot. Put the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne into a blender. Blend the eggs for 20-30 seconds at medium to medium high speed until lighter in color. Turn blender down to lowest setting and slowly drizzle in the hot melted butter while the blender is going. Continue to blend for a few seconds after all of the butter is incorporated. Taste the sauce and add more salt or lemon juice if needed. Keep warm while you are steaming the asparagus.

3 Bring the water in your steaming pan to a boil. Place the asparagus on the steaming rack. Cover. Steam for 3 to 5 minutes, until tender, but still a little crisp, definitely not mushy. The timing depends on how thick the asparagus spears are.
