Brunch at Cafe Broder

Living in the brunch capital of the nation can be intimidating at times. On one hand, having an infinite number of restaurants to try is what dreams are made of, on the other, it takes the question of "so where do you feel like eating today?" to a whole new level. I'm talking hour-long discussions here people - pro and con lists, debates, pie charts - the decision process is daunting.

9/10 we end up revisiting our favorite places because they're so darn good; among those favorites are the Broder Cafes...

Legit Black Forest Cupcakes

These aren't your typical Black Forest Cupcakes. Forget the bright red maraschino cherries and bland whipped topping - this rich chocolate cake is enhanced by espresso, dark sweet cherries, and cherry kirsch (aka booze). I've made these with a couple variations over the years but I think I have decided that this is my go-to favorite version. Feel free to adjust the amount of coffee and alcohol in the filling and frosting to your desired tastes.
