Bon Appétit (January 2015)
We think it's only fitting to end January -- month of resolutions, revolutions and reductions -- with a big ol' chocolate cake.
More than a year ago, a group of Clay's coworkers made the kind of resolution we can definitely get behind: The BAKE-O-LUTION. The idea is simple: Bake a new recipe once a month, and bring it into the office to share. So for more than a year now, once a month, folks show up at work with their baked goods: cakes (so many cakes!), pies, cookies and brownies galore. It's a glorious thing. And it's the perfect inspiration to do more baking.
But in the year that the BAKE-O-LUTION has been going on, we've never baked anything for it. It's not because we're anti-cake (far from it!). We just never got our act together to plan, shop and bake for the monthly get-together.
It was time to break that streak.
So for the first BAKE-O-LUTION of 2015, Clay showed up with this Chocolate-Rye Crumb Cake, from the latest issue of Bon Appétit.
