Description: Chocolate cake with chiles? Tortillas for dessert? Biscotti with cornmeal? Sounds a little loco, hut these southwestern-inspired desserts are mighty fine eatin'. Ancho Chile Devil's Food Cake, Espresso-Mascarpone Quesadillas with Mixed Fruit, and Blue Corn Biscotti arc just some of the easy-to-prepare recipes found in Cakes and Cowpokes. Wayne Brachman, pastry chef at Mesa Grill and Bolo, two of New York's hottest restaurants, shares his passion for the Southwest, his innovative ideas, and his wacky sense of humor in this unique dessert roundup. 

Wayne takes the best of the Southwest -- blue cornmeal, cinnamon-spiked Mexican chocolates, dried fruits, pumpkin seeds, and even tequila -- and creates real action-packed desserts. The roundup includes Mexican Gold Nugget Brownie Torte with an optional dusting of real 22-karat gold dust, Papaya Upside-Down Cake, Chocolate Enchiladas, Cornmeal-Crusted Apple Tart, and a Bunuelos Banana Split. Spend high noon at the cookie jar with Dried Cherry and Hazelnut Toll House Cookies and Pecan-Cornmeal Madeleines. 

Ready for a pie fight at the O.K. Corral? Try Mango Meringue Pic and Rio Grande Mud Pie. Discover where the pear and the cantaloupe play with Wayne's wild salsas and sauces in every color and flavor imaginable. The recipes are fun, fast, and easy, and there's nothing like them north, south, east or west of the Rio Grande.
