Must try: The Brooklyn Blackout ONLY!




Those are the ONLY words that come to mind when I think of the Brooklyn Blackout.

It is the ultimate sin – and is decisively the best darned chocolate cupcake/ cake I have ever had. Nothing can be quite so decadent and comforting at the same time.




 It’s the kind of cake you want to write poetry to – inspiring – ethereal.

 For me – Two Little Red Hens = Brooklyn Blackout ONLY!

 I enter there with a singular purpose. I have tried the other baked goods here and haven’t really been impressed with anything else.

 The blackout is at its best when eaten it at room temperature. The frosting is then perfectly softened, the chocolate filled cream center is oozing and combined with a flawless moist cake this makes for an ideal experience.




 I have but one query for the folks behind Two Little Red Hens – when is your cookbook coming out?
