Got Milk?

Posted On 11:05 AM |

It's a great feeling when you know you have everything in your cupboards to make a recipe you're craving for. But there's nothing like the fever you get when you discover a new recipe and MUST. MAKE. IT. NOW.

I decided to try out a recipe that I'm hoping to work on in its entirety with all four of my sisters later this summer. There are three parts: the cake, the ganache, the frosting. I did just the cake yesterday. The recipe was designed to add junk to your trunk. No, seriously. The project as a whole already has a name, but I've decided to name the cake itself


Don't even read the rest of this post if you can't handle a chocolate overdose.

The first ingredient is an entire box of unsweetened chocolate. Only had a tonne of cocoa and some chips at home - which is why I suggested to Big Boy we go on a biking excursion. *wink wink - but hey, he got a new bicycle bell out of it*

Everything was going fabulously. After all, it's always a great day when the use of my big fat mixer is required. And then I realized that I only have 8" round pans and not (I guess the standard) 9". Uh oh. That, and the fact that I had to scurry over to the school in time for dismissal (the bike excursion ran long, as you can see:

pushing the whole process down to finish at 3:28pm) resulted in this partial picture of the cake. I could show you the whole thing, but then I'd have to kill you.

Here's the finished product, with a generous helping of ooey gooey (= melted chocolate + condensed milk) on top. Not bad. Perfect with a big glass of milk (because ice cream with this may be over-the-top, even for me), a rainy day, and a big fork.

    That's AMAZING! I can taste it already!

    I hate it that you're way too far from me...but my trunk is thanking you for it!
