I decided to make two cakes one from before the start of the Heavenly Cake Bakers, the "Banana Refrigerator Cake with Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Frosting", and one that I missed in the beginning, "Barcelona Brownie Bars. " I also missed the Hungarian Jansci Torta but I figured I would save that for Passover.
Cake one - The Banana Cake:
Mis en place:
The white chocolate frosting is just not the right to make in the blender. A
blender needs a least a little a little liquid to get things moving. I added an extra tsp of almond extract out of frustration. It got things moving but the taste, while still edible, was not ideal. Next time I am just going to use the hand mixer!
The cake itself was absolutely delicious!
Cake two - Barcelona Brownie Bars:
Mis en place:
Notice that someone tried to sneak some chocolate...
I ran out of baker's Pam and I'll have to prepare my pans the old fashioned way until after Passover.
My "double boiler" :)
Er.. "sift" the flour in...
(That's my Bronx Cheer in case you didn't know...)
All ready to go in to the toaster.
Got out my, uh, "piping" tube...
(It's just us here right...)
The "plugs" sank a little. In the background you can see my lemon poppy seed cake. (More on that next week.)
Aside from the fact that I do not think I have ever had dairy brownies before, these are hands down the best brownies that I have ever had!
:P (Now I'm just likin' my lips.)
