THE CAKE–Your Thursday Recipe

WHAT A CAKE

WHAT A CAKE

Here it is 🙂
 
It is a pretty easy recipe….
 
2 Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mixes Made per package instructions. I like the kind with the pudding in the mix. Make the layers on the thinner side. you may have to decrease cooking time a bit.
 
2 Tubs of Chocolate Frosting
Peanut butter
Using the layers, alternate chocolate cake, frosting, chocolate cake, peanut butter, chocolate cake etc until the cake is as high as you want it. the higher the better!!!
When the cake is cool put the layers together and frost it with the purchased frosting and then make:
 
Ganache
2/3 cup whipping cream
6-8 oz chocolate chips
Heat whipping cream over low heat until hot but not boiling.
Stir in chocolate chips until melted.
Let stand 5 mins. Pour over cake letting it drizzle down the sides.
 
Garnish with 6-8 chopped up Reece’s peanut butter cups.
Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Serve with Reece’s peanut butter cup ice cream.
Enjoy!!!

 

This recipe is from my bonus daughter but I have to add just a little something and she would agree with me.  This is not a healthy cake, when you purchase cake mixes and frosting they both will have partially hydrogenated shortening in them, this is very bad for you.  So you would either not want to make this often or look for some healthy way of doing the same thing.  Perhaps make your own cake and frosting and use half and half in place of the cream.  I don’t know it is just something to think about.  I have a friend who says, if your going to make it make it like it says–not sure I agree but each to his own.  It is a beautiful and lovely cake.
