Margarita from Let's Cook and Be Friends picked our recipe this week. Click here to read her take on the dish: a chocolate-cherry pancake sandwich and a chocolate-cherry panino. And click here to see what the other creative cookers whipped up (look in the comments section).
After a five stop walking food tour, we definitely didn't need anything else to eat tonight, but after putting the boys to bed, I decided Jake and I could have one more dessert, my version of the chocolate-cherry panini...with some Cognac.
thinly sliced bread, I used an Italian ciabatta
shaved dark chocolate
pitted fresh cherries
Butter the bread sliced on the "outside." Layer the bread, chocolate, and cherries in a heated pan. Sprinkle with a dash of cardamom. Top with another slice of bread and press down with a pot lid. When the chocolate is softened and the bread crisped, flip over. Press down again with a pot lid until the other side is equally browned. Serve with a side of fresh cherries and a glass of cognac.
