Tammy from Wee Treats by Tammy chose this week's recipe: Caramel Topped Peanut (Cashew-in my case) Brownie Cake. I will be honest (don't yell at me), but I was not impressed by this cake at all. This is the first recipe of all the Dorie recipe's I've made that I just wasn't a fan of. The cake was pretty dull, tasteless, and dry while the caramel was impossible to work with. I wanted to take this into work with me but it was too messy to do so. The caramel tasted like, well, er, caramel; and paired with the salty cashews presented a great taste but the cake portion of this recipe was disappointing. Being the resourceful person I am, I scooped the caramel-drenched cashews off the cake and added them to a bowl of vanilla ice cream which was AMAZING! When it comes to desserts, I know how to make do... =)
If I were to make this again I would opt for cupcakes! Sorry Tammy! Next week's recipe are Almond Biscotti's! I've been dying to make biscotti's forever! Yay!
