At work we have an Iron Chef Challenge once a month where a group of people cook off and have their dishes judged by a panel of fellow employees. This month’s secret ingredient is…. PESTO! Right away I knew I didn’t want to do something traditional with pesto, so I ventured off to what I know best: Dessert. I made a Basil Chocolate Cake with a Parmesan Sour Cream Cheese Icing and topped it off with some pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese. This is also one of the best things I’ve ever eaten – SERIOUS FOODGASM.

In a food processor, combine the sugar and basil leaves and blend until a smooth paste develops (will be slightly watery). Then beat together the sugar-basil mixture, cocoa powder and the melted butter. Add in one egg at a time. Add in your baking soda, vanilla and salt. Mix until blended and gradually add in the flour and finish with the hot water.
