A few weeks ago I went to Twisted Fork in Raleigh. The best part was the dessert, Tia Maria Cake. It was amazing. Could you get this recipe? --M.B., Raleigh
According to Dean Ogan, owner of Twisted Fork (3751 Sumner Blvd., in Triangle Town Center; 792-2535; www.thetwistedfork.com), "Tia Maria Cake is our most popular dessert by far." It's easy to understand why, given the cake's can't-miss combination of chocolate chip cookies, coffee liqueur and mocha buttercream icing. Thanks to pastry chef Richard Smith for sharing the recipe.
