Joy Wilson works soft goat cheese, dark chocolate, coarsely ground black pepper, and flaky sea salt into these petit truffles, rolling them in bitter cocoa powder to finish. They aren't over the top sweet but they're plenty chocolaty. And they have just the right amount of goat-y goodness both flavor-wise and in that great creamy-crumbly quality that we love in goat cheese.

This recipe works a few mashed avocados into a pound cake recipe and adds a bit of cornmeal for texture. It bakes up just barely green, crisp on the edges, tender within, and with just a bit of a crunchy bite.
Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook is a single gal, and being single means lots of time spent speculating about Mr. Right. She describes her Extra Crumb Coffee Cake as "The perfect husband. It has the perfect balance of substance and sweet tenderness. The filling brings in just a bit of spice. A little romance (or chocolate) never hurt anyone either, right? The topping is full of extra heart-melting goodness." Pretty sweet, Pretty sweet, don't you think?
