OK. I am still here. Life is moving at warp speed. I have actually made the last three recipes but haven’t posted them. I am not going to have time to mess with pictures today but I feel compelled to post my reviews of the last three before it turns into four. So, here goes:
I really wanted to make these with York pieces but I had a small window of time to make them on Sunday afternoon. And there was a torrential downpour. And I had Andes baking pieces in the cabinet. You do the math. I tried a small corner and declared them moist, chocolatey and minty. Then I sent them to a friend who is serving overseas. COMPLETELY forgot to take a picture. I have made a similar recipe with whole york mini patties from Everyday Foods. It has a row of patties in the middle of brownies. Also very good.
I made this for my mom’s birthday and she declared it one of her favorite desserts. This is one of those desserts that will fool your friends into thinking that you really know what you are doing. AWESOME.
Rum Drenched Vanilla Cakes
I had no time and no rum. I made one cake and used chocolate chips and coffee instead of rum. Very nice simple cake. I wish I had remembered to coat the chocolate chips with a little flour because they all sunk to the bottom. Oh well. I turned the cake over and it became a cake with a chocolate chip topping. Probably not a repeat for me but that is mostly the result of my ambivalence towards poundcakes.
Whew. Next week I hope to be back in the game. with pictures even.
