When we got home, she hopped in the tub for a nice warm soak while I went online to find a recipe. I have some very involved ones, but didn't have a quick and easy "go-to" one... Until now! I sifted through way too many recipes that required using strong coffee and finally happened upon this one. "Oh yeah!" I thought to myself as I had even watched that particular show on Pioneer Woman. I remember it looking very yummy and made a mental note to try it someday. All I can say is that it's a keeper! It was loved by all, even by Little Sis who is not crazy about things chocolate.
So here's the recipe: Ree Drummond's Big Chocolate Birthday Cake. As funny as it sounds, I 1/4th the recipe because it makes a giant 4 layer cake and this family for four does NOT need to try to pound through all that!
I was kind of pressed for time, so I wasn't as patient w/ the frosting and didn't let it cool long enough (ie it was pretty runny) and instead ended up using it as a drizzle on top instead of frosting it. No complaining here - in fact, the girls had fun drizzling their own piece!
And here's the pic, topped with Cabot's premium natural whipped creammmmmmm.
