    Manami's Note:

    Recipe by Michelle Bernstein, From Miami's Hottest Latin Party. This recipe originally appeared in June, 2006. "Here, she tops slices of warm grilled cake with a fantastic Mexican-inspired chocolate sauce flavored with cocoa, cinnamon and chile powder." My girlfriend Judy and I made this for some guests. I was worried about the chile powder in the chocolate and the basil in the fruit salad but it really worked well together and we enjoyed it very much. Judy is friends with Michelle Bernstein so she wanted to try some of her recipes. Judy has lived in Mexico as well as Italy when they left Cuba and then ended up in Miami by way of Lancaster, Pa. So her recipes take me along for the ride. This could be made with pineapple, as well.
