GANACHE COVERED CHOCOLATE MALT CAKE
WITH LAYERS OF FUDGE + SALTED CARAMEL FROSTING + PEANUT BUTTER CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
(plus caramel kettle corn, malted milk balls, crushed peanuts, ritz crackers, potato chips)
If this cake doesn’t scream sugar rush, I don’t know what does.
My brother just got his braces off so what better way to celebrate than with a cake chock full of all the treats he couldn’t enjoy for the past year or so. Gooey fudge, sticky caramel corn, crispy potato chips, crackers and peanuts along with hard-as-rocks malted milk balls and two types of frosting― creamy peanut butter and salted caramel.
Oh and four layers of chocolate malt cake.
All covered with chocolate ganache.
Are you going into a sugar coma yet?
VEGAN GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE W/ SALTED CARAMEL PECAN RIBBON
Do you know what today is?
It’s National German Chocolate Cake Day! And Rose Day at Colonial Park in Franklin, NJ.
(Bet you didn’t guess either of those, did you?)
If you can’t make it out to see the roses, don’t fret— you can still celebrate by baking yourself this twist on a classic German Chocolate Cake.
Running through this lightly sweetened vegan chocolate cake is a ribbon of homemade salted pecan caramel. Sandwiched between the three layers is a gloriously sticky coconut milk frosting along with more caramel, pecans and toasted coconut.
And if that isn’t enough flavor for you, throw in some chocolate chips between the layers and top the cake shards of pecan brittle.
I repeat, glorious.
A word to the wise, don’t line your circle pans with wax paper. It works for carrot cake but not so much for this cake— unless you enjoy scraping wax paper with a variety of sharp implements. Use very well greased parchment paper instead.
Onto the million dollar question…
Did German Chocolate Cake originate in Germany?
COOKIE BARS WITH DRIED CHERRIES + SALTED CARAMEL + CHOCOLATE BARK
Happy Star Wars Day everyone! Have you seen the new Star Wars movie yet? Okay, technically it was released back in December but it’s comparatively new.
I liked Episode VII— it was a fun movie albeit somewhat safe. With a predictable storyline and a fair number of plot holes, it wasn’t anything revolutionary. However it stayed true to the original series so it still gets a thumbs up from me.
In honor of Star Wars Day, I made these “Chewy”bacca Bars. Get it? Chewie and chewy.
Does laughing at my own jokes make me a dork?
Oh well. If you can’t entertain yourself, who else will? Read more
