Tonight, on Thursday’s Culinary Adventure:
I usually write on the pictures, but this week it wouldn’t all fit; because we’re having:
Chocolate Chip Pound Cake with Hot
Fudge, Strawberries, and Whipped
Yes, perhaps not the most adventuresome, (IT’S BOUND TO BE GOOD!) but remember that I have been sick! Plus, when I thought of it, it just sounded delicious and I couldn’t resist!
Here to help me tonight is my little buddy and constant side-kick, Joseph!
Follow the directions on the box, you only have to add water and eggs, and then get your hand mixer ready.
Mix for about 5 minutes.
This is Joseph’s face at the exact moment that I turned the mixer on…
Which resulted in me having to do this
for the rest of the mix time
(I used some extra big milk chocolate ones that I found in bulk at Winco.)
Grease your pans and pour the batter in. I used a Bundt pan for the prettiness factor.
Bake for about 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
Then, pin the said toddler to the wall with your leg so that you can safely open the oven and remove the cake without him touching it. (Not pictured, but it happened.)
Chop up some strawberries, and put them in a lovely blue bowl.
Get out your hot fudge, your whipped cream, and whatever else you think needs to go on top. (Nuts, maybe? Sprinkles? The world is your oyster.)
Pile it on and gobble it up!
Taste Tester’s Say:
Caitlin: “YUMMM! Thumbs up!”
Brian: “Great Dessert!” (This face could mean anything.)
Summary: Just a little something special and delicious to finish off a warm spring day! Next time I am going to double the amount of chocolate chips, though. I was worried that it would be to rich, but it’s not at all!
This chocolate chip pound cake would also be delicious with a cup of coffee. Maybe my morning coffee?
