Question: Is this a cupcake?
One: It's a cake. Check.
Two: It was baked in a muffin/cupcake pan. Check.
Three: It doesn't have frosting but fleur de sel sprinkled on top. Maybe? Yes! Check.
Four: It was not named cupcake on the menu, but I don't care.
On my first day in Montreal, I had dinner at La Piazzetta in the Village and had this for dessert. It was delicious and it inspired. This a good way to have a chocolate cupcake in hot weather and not worry about frosting and with yummy caramel oozing from the first bite, it is a sexy cupcake. I actually sighed when I tasted it.
