    Manami's Note:

    Sour cream cake with toffee and fudge -- what is not to like? All the ingredients go so well together! Chef Emeril shared this recipe with Good Morning America. In his new book "From Emeril's Kitchens: Favorite Recipes from Emeril's Restaurants" chef Emeril has combined his most frequently requested major dishes from his menus. Inactive prep time 30 minutes.;) Am just keeping this here so I won't misplace it.
