Delicious Dish Spotlight!



Okay I have to point the finger (in a good way) at Karen over at Hope-Pray-Trust!  She gave the recipe for Chocolate Stout Cake see: The Best Chocolate Cake EVER! and DH made it for me on Sunday and it was spectacular

We celebrated the Fourth of July with his side of the family and also had a late birthday celebration for me (which is why I didn't make the cake myself; can't make your own birthday cake, right?)  So DH volunteered and did an excellent job!  The only slight mishap was trying to remove the cake from the bundt pan before it totally cooled...so there was a bit stuck inside the pan, resulting in a slightly misshapen cake...but it certainly did not take away from the taste! 

(DH with his cake...pic is taken outside because my camera wouldn't cooperate with the lighting inside, however you still cannot see the cake since it is dark and on my black plate!  At least DH and DD look cute!)


(Picture really just does not do it justice....just make it and taste it!  Your mouth will thank you!)

This cake was so awesome....I don't like overly super-sweet stuff and this was just perfect! 

Thanks Karen for posting that recipe, now everyone get over there and print it out!  It is definitely one for the recipe box!

I would make it, but I would eat the WHOLE thing. Your DH cooked that, wow!!! Even better and even more reason I would eat the whole thing! hahahaha
