|Dorie Greenspan's White-Out Cake|
Recently my little brother has done a number of things that have made me feel really old, but more than that they have made me realize that he's all grown up. In a short period of time he has become a father, gotten a really great job and has moved into a new home. I couldn't be happier or more proud of him...they grow up so fast don't they...tear, tear...where's my kleenex!!
Sorry, I got a little sappy for a second there...as I was saying, this weekend he invited me and my husband over for a small housewarming party and since I wanted to celebrate his accomplishments and I didn't want show up empty-handed, I jumped online to do a little Pinterest browsing and found this very popular recipe for Dorie Greenspan's White-Out Cake from her cookbook Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Believe it or not, I have had this cookbook on my Amazon wish list for a while now, but I have yet to hit the "buy with one-click" button. Geez, Amazon makes it too easy...I am trying to keep my cookbook addiction in check, which is exactly why I love Pinterest and food blogs so much. I am able to get some honest feedback from other bakers on different recipes as well as test out a few of them on my own before making my cookbook investments.
Now that I have made, tasted and tested this recipe on my family I can honestly say that this cookbook purchase is no longer a frivolous want, but a real NEED...hehehe...in all seriousness, it's a great recipe. The cake is moist and chocolatey while the frosting is light as a cloud with the perfect amount of sweetness. I assure you that your guests will not be disappointed when you pull this beauty out.
