I’m making my return to Tuesdays with Dorie! woohoo!

This week’s recipe was chosen by the lovely Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater. She chose the Devil’s Food White Out Cake which is actually the cover picture of Dorie’s book. I’d never paid attention to the picture until Stephanie chose the recipe and after that, it was all I could think about.

I had a few problems while making it. See, when I went to flip the cakes onto a cooling rack and disaster struck.

One was perfectly fine, the other fell apart almost completely. But instead of throwing it out, which is my usual method of dealing with things, I took a biscuit cutter to them and came out with 4 tiny cakes. We were supposed to cut the layers into 4 thin ones but I decided not to risk it after the first disaster.

This cake was truly amazing. I am not a chocolate cake fan but holy geez best cake ever. The frosting was light and marshmallow-y and the crumbled cake on top was the perfect finishing touch.

If you want the recipe which I know you do, head over the Stephanie’s blog and try not to break your cake layers like some people did.


This weeks TWD recipe was chosen by Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy. She chose Dorie’s Caramel Peanut Topped Brownie Cake. I can’t begin to tell you how excited the husband was when I showed him the picture in the book. And he was not disappointed.

This recipe was so much easier than I expected. The cake came together in no time and for the first time ever (!) the cake was done in the time Dorie said it would be! Seriously, that never happens. No matter what I’m cooking. The caramel took much longer than Dorie sai but it was worth the time.

I need to remember this recipe next time I need a simple but impressive cake. It really was great! Thanks to Tammy for the great choice!


Forgive me for being late. Between Hurricane Gustav and having strep throat, I didn’t even realize that yesterday was Tuesday.

But anyway, this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters (I so just typed Chipper. Must not watch Braves games while updating blog.) and it was chosen by the lovely Stefany of Proceed with Caution.

Honestly, I made these a few weeks ago and really don’t remember much about them. They were good and my little family enjoyed them but apparently they weren’t very memorable.

If you want the full recipe visit Proceed with Caution. Next week I hope to back to normal so I should actually be able to remember the recipe.
