TGIF! It’s almost the weekend, my peeps! Time to make something delicious!
Like Salted Caramel Pudding & Chocolate Cake Trifle!
Do you want to know the story behind this dessert? Well, I’ll tell you anyways.
It all started with a chocolate cake. It was glorious! All beautifully baked in a pan. And then I tried to invert it onto a plate and…. kinda missed it… Not sure what happened there but all of a sudden I had my beautiful cake in pieces. Right in front of me.
Happy April Fools Day!
How was your Easter weekend? We had a gorgeous warm and sunny day, great food and fabulous desserts. I hope you had a great time too!
Let’s talk April Fools Day for a second. I don’t like it. One big reason why: I was always the easiest to trick. This year I feel a bit of ahead of the game but only because I got tricked yesterday. I read something on the internet and (like a fool) went on to let my Hubby on the oh-so-surprising news (yes, I am talking about the YouTube rumors…). I saw his smirk and it hit me! Darn it, I got tricked!
Happy first day of Spring! If you see it anywhere, send it my way. We had a hefty dose of snow in the last two days, snowflakes so big you could almost see their shapes through the window. Because that’s as close to the snow as I get. Or want to get. Don’t like winter. Miss summer. That’s me.
But hey! First day of spring calls for celebration. So… let’s eat cake!
After this stunner of a cake, it’s time to relax a bit and make something simple yet perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon. A sheet cake, for example. And not just any sheet cake. Chocolate buttermilk sheet cake with chocolate buttermilk frosting.
Enter Texas sheet cake. One of my favorite chocolate cakes. It is the sheet cake. Always sure to please, easy to make and the frosting is lick-the-bowl good! I skipped the nuts (hope you don’t mind) as I don’t really care for them in this dessert. Okay, I snack on them too fast to have any left for a cake. Can we still be friends?
Did I mention the chocolate?
I suggest you pull out the eggs and butter and let them sit on your counter because by the time you are done reading this post (yes, I am assuming you actually read my posts ) you will need your ingredients at room temperature to make this cake. Because you will want to make this cake. I am telling you right now. It is that good!
And then make sure you remember to make it for Easter. With it’s fresh lemony flavor and gorgeous appearance it is sure to be a star on your holiday table.
Case in point.
