We have some good friends coming for dinner tomorrow night, and my job, as usual falls to baking a cake.
It’s a hobby I picked up several years ago because, quite frankly, I like cake.
Tomorrow’s dessert is called a “Lethal Chocolate Peppermint” cake. It’s a devils food cake with a chocolate granache on top and peppermint candy frosting in the center. It also features peppermint Schnapps.
It is the best cake I’ve ever eaten. I’m no Emerile either. The recipe comes from a book called “Cake Mix Doctor“. I found it at the library about six years ago and then bought my own copy. The author, Anne Byrn, creates recipes that use an original cake mix as the base.
I’ll try to post a picture tomorrow afternoon. Sadly, the internet is not good for taste tests.
