Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have had a great holiday and a jolly good time celebrating New Year's eve. I'm sure 2013 will be an awesome year which will also bring peace and happiness to everyone.
For my first post for 2013, I'm sharing with you these Mini Golden Chocolate Cakes. These 'Golden' Chocolate Cakes are made up of a combination of golden cheese powder and valrhona cocoa powder. The mini cakes turned out soft and a little cheesy with the fragrance of chocolate as well. They're perfect for party as the baking time only takes about 12 minutes. You may not be able to find this golden cheese powder here because this cheese powder was brought back from Taiwan when my friend was holidaying there recently but you can definitely replace it with grated cheddar cheese instead. After reading the recipe, please stay put to join the giveaway below.
