When Bad Things Happen to Good Cake
Don't you just hate it when your bundt cake pan doesn't cooperate and you just have a couple of hours before needing to leave for a party with a dessert? Especially when that said pan has been working fine for years, without even the slightest boo-boo?
Well, a few weeks ago, when going to a friend's birthday party i ran into more than a little boo-boo making a Vanilla Spice Swirl Cake from Get it Ripe. Not sure what happened inside while baking, and it could have been because i 'swirled' the batter too much, but my poor cake did not fall out of the pan happily.So, instead of just throwing it out and trying to make something else from scratch, i figured 'well, the cake tastes good and is cooked, so why toss it?' So, i recalled a recipe for a triffle i did, from My Sweet Vegan, and my quick thinking turned into this - a pudding cake! Almost as good as what i first planned it to be. With a few chocolate shavings and sprinkles of cinnamon on top, i even fooled myself.
