I was clicking through StumbleUpon.com the other day and came across THIS recipe for cake that looked amazing. It uses any kind of box cake and any kind of ice cream to make a moist and flavorful cake. Yum! Last night I had a Dinners for Eight meal with people from my church. They asked me to bring dessert. It was the perfect opportunity!
I decided to go with dark chocolate cake and Cherry Garcia ice cream. Mmm… It would taste like chocolate covered cherries…
It mixed and baked without a hitch. I was a little nervous at the end because my cake didn’t puff up as much as the cake at Omnomicon. It was fine though. I dusted the top with powdered sugar and headed for the party.
The dinner was great. And when it came time to eat the cake, it didn’t disappoint. It was moist and delicious. I couldn’t taste the cherries as much as I had hoped. Next time I will use a lighter chocolate, or I will just dump a bunch of extra cherries into the batter. Or I’ll do a completely different combination of flavors, because why not? What a cool recipe!
