    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    I was looking for a praline cake filling and found this on the internet. I found the original recipe to be too thick. While it didn't harden like a praline, it was just simply too thick. I've adjusted the quantities of milk and powdered sugar in order to have a filling that is spreadable. After it cools, you may need to thin it with a little more evaporated milk. If it's too thick start adding one tablespoon at a time until you get a consistency that can easily be spread on a cake without tearing the cake. You are looking for a consistency that will slowly drip off of your mixing spoon. There are other recipes for praline fillings that aren't cooked. However, I find that the cooking of the mixture adds extra flavor and a richness that will not achieve by just mixing the ingredients together. I love to make a yellow cake and use this filling and ice with a chocolate buttercream frosting and then pour a chocolate ganache over the top of the cake and let it drip down the sides.

      I tried this filling and it was really good. I made a 1/4 sized recipe to try it and it was a lot, but was it good!? I followed it to the T and it turned out great. Will post pics soon.

      This is excellent. I cut the recipe in half and still had more than enough for what I needed. I also used more powdered sugar than called for because I wanted a thick filling that wouldn't bulge between the layers. I could eat it with a spoon it's soooo good!
