Writer Notes

Whereas getting prepared for a most modern shuttle to Italy, I needed to debris round with some Italian-inspired dishes, namely Italian-inspired desserts. Cue these Chocolate Olive Oil Shrimp Desserts. I took Maialino’s Olive Oil Cake recipe and added my obtain, chocolatey flare on fable of, if truth be told, what is now not any longer better with chocolate? By taking a chunk of the flour and replacing it with cocoa powder and adding in some vanilla paste and espresso, the beautifully delicate, earthy flavors of Maialino’s Olive Oil Cake are amplified and elevated to an fully novel level. —Emily
