It is quite funny that he gave me with chocolate, sorry for those who do not like chocolate but it's like Christmas.
Anyway , I had looking in books and magazines in different languages when I found these little cakes and caught my attention the recipe of honey and chocolate which I found novel and not only fruits go with spices that really I love .I can comment is a different Christmas cake and really good!

special for Christmas
( 6 or 8 cakes ) I use molds like these
100 grams chopped pistachios
100 grams chopped almonds
200 grams of candied fruit
200 grams chopped dark chocolate
40 grams powder chocolate
2 tablespoons cognac
140 grams of sugar
140 grams of honey
200 grams of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
flaked almonds for garnish
Prepare 6 or 8 individual molds,
In a bowl soak the chopped almonds, pistachios, candied fruit with cognac.
In another bowl mix the eggs with the sugar and honey, beat until mixture is frothy and reserve.
In a saucepan heat the chopped chocolate with the butter until dissolved.
In another bowl sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, spices and mix.
Then add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture and flour mix and soaked fruits, mix well and spread in molds and put in a baking tray.
Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Preheat to 180 ° c.
Bake about 25 to 30 minutes or until they are firm. (You can try a bamboo stick)
Remove and let cool.
They can be wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator up to 15 days.
2 months in the freezer.
cakes de chocolate y especias
Estos cakes son una maravilla y no es porque los haga yo, :) es sólo porque el olor cuando se cocinaban era absolutamente maravilloso, como un olor a Navidad.
La mezcla de especias y chocolate es deliciosa.
