All kinds of cake's! Chocolate cakes, fruity cakes, cheesecakes, carrotcakes, if it says cake and I thought it looked delish, it's here! No, I haven't tried them all, but when we have potlucks I pick "something sweet" and practice on my work friends!
This is a recipe that I adopted in a whirlwind Zaar adoption in September 2006. It looks like according to some of the comments that it is a Mean Chef Original. I haven't myself made it and when I do I'll add my two cents into the description.You can make two smaller ones too
I adopted this recipe 9/06. It is incredible. The great reviews are not misleading. I don't get why the instructions tell you to trim the cake. I just chilled the cake for a bit and then spread the frosting on the sides of the cake. This will be my main chocolate cake from now on. I didn't take a great picture of the cake, but the one I took gives you a hint of how much I loved this cake. I didn't share it, I just got a fork and ate it for 3 days right off of the platter. The original description follows.....
This is a super chocolatey buttermilk cake and icing. Very easy to make. This cake is "the" employee comfort food at the catering company where I work.
(Mean Chef adoptee) I have tried many versions of the famous New York blackout cake. After many trials I have settled on this one by Wayne Harley Brachman - Retro Desserts. It is awsome. Source: "Retro Desserts". Use Recipe #37844 for icing. Adopted 9/06
These comments are from their cookbook:
"At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"
Have always loved the ability to just "throw" a cake together and not have to worry about it. This time I did not have the usual crushed pineapple or yellow cake mix. I tried this mix and it was a real hit
