In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1 ½ tsp each of baking powder and kosher salt. Whisk together before slowly adding to the mixture in the stand mixture on a low speed.

4.

Once those are added, turn mixer back on to a high speed for 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy.

5.

Oil the inside of a cake pan, fill it with the cake batter, smooth out the top, and bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until set and no longer jiggling.

6.

While cake cools, we’re going to melt 8 ounces of chocolate in a double boiler. Pour chocolate onto a sheet pan and spread it out until smooth. Freeze for 10 minutes or until it has lost its sheen.

7.

Use a lemon zester, scrape the chocolate off of the pan, creating some short and curly chocolate curls. Place in a bowl and toss with some cocoa powder. Place in freezer until we’re ready to use them.

8.

In the meantime we’re going to scrape our cooled cake into a mixing bowl. Adding ½ cup of whole milk, adding more milk if necessary until we reach a dough-y consistency. We will then shape them into chocolate balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

9.

Coat balls in molten chocolate and roll in the bowl of chocolate curlies.

Start by removing seeds and stems from chilies and cut them into 1 inch pieces. Place into dry fry pan and toast on a medium high heat until smoking slightly and fragrant.

7.

Add heirloom tomatoes and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated or until tomatoes are soft.
