When we spoke with Rachel Lohman of Drink Coffee over the winter, she expressed her love of a flour-less chocolate cake called the BLACK BEAST. As promised, here is the recipe just in time for Easter weekend!
“You can add a sauce like a salted caramel or a fruit sauce. There’s a ganache over it. It’s the only desert I want for my birthday, or any special occasion,” Rachel says. So get creative with your toppings, decorate your Black Beast cake with Easter candy, fresh (edible) flowers, or keep it simple with fresh strawberries or a locally made cherry topping!
Door County Chefs Welcomes New ‘Ask a Chef’ Contributor: Rachel Lohman, The Cookie Lady of Drink Coffee
On one of the coldest days in January, I caught up with Rachel Lohman, owner and chief bottle washer of Drink Coffee, located in Sister Bay. This time of year Drink Coffee is closed, but that doesn’t mean Rachel isn’t in the Drink frame of mind. She’s busy reading cookbooks, researching sandwiches and bakery goodies for the 2014 busy season. To welcome her as both a chef and a baker to Door County Chefs ‘Ask a Chef’ features, I wanted to ask her a few questions about Drink Coffee and the Cookie Lady herself…
