Andrew Shotts left his job as pastry chef at the San Francisco chocolate company Guittard to launch his own little business, Garrison Confections, in 2001. Based in Providence, Shotts is known for making his chocolates in small batches, creating appealing flavor combinations like mango pâte de fruit (jellied fruit paste) with passion fruit ganache. Here, he applies his talents to chocolate cake, mixing lots of buttermilk and coffee into the batter to create an incredibly moist, rich and fudgy dessert.Plus: More Indulgent Chocolate Recipes and Tips
