Lemon Cornmeal Cakes with Lapsang Souchong Chocolate Sauce -- "This dessert is all about a startling combination of flavors--apricots, smoky Lapsang souchong tea, chocolate, maraschino liqueur and cream. Every element of this dessert can be made in advance." -- Food & Wine
The beauty of this tea truffles recipe is that you can use up tea left lingering in your store cupboard - be it Jasmine, English Breakfast or even Lapsang Souchong for a smokier truffle. The key to the recipe is to brew the tea so it is very strong, and can match up to the intensity of the chocolate.
