Make. This. Cake. Now.
No seriously, go make this cake. I promise you won’t regret it. No matter what kind of day you have, you will have this cake to come home to and that is special.
As soon as I spotted this recipe I knew I had to make this cake and Valentine’s Day was the perfect excuse to create this hot magenta frosting. This cake is moist (ahhhh I hate that word), delicious and so flavorful. It’s so much more than chocolate cake. If you love beets or hate beets, you can’t taste them in this cake.
Generally, if I don’t make bread then I don’t eat bread. I haven’t made bread since late-December. That must be some kind of record. I love bread. I was raised in a carb-loving, yeast-craving family. Breakfast doesn’t feel complete without some type of flour-based treat. Nothing eases me more than a lightly toasted piece of buttered homemade bread with a cup of tea. That was my RX when I first landed in Ireland- experiencing the meaning of homesick for the first time in my 19-year old life.
