Apple Pudding Cake

Apple Pudding Cake

This scrumptious Apple Pudding Cake mysteriously disappeared so fast I had to bake another one just to do the pics for this tutorial.

Even after a stern, ‘Hooves off, dudes!,’ and getting nods of understanding it still disappeared.

And the weirdest thing is no one had an inkling where the darn thing vanished.

All I got out of the herd was, “Do wut?”

Like I didn’t know? The herd must have been thinking there was slack in my rope.

C’mon now, this ain’t my first rodeo. Didn’t they know that this Apple Pudding Cake was baked specifically for you?

Of all the nerve.

The aroma of cinnamon apples baking in the oven and the herd sniffing around my kitchen should have been the first clue.

Even after doggin’ the main bull toward the pasture it was futile.

Here they’d come, corralling near the oven, over and over again .

The 2nd time baking this Apple Pudding Cake, I got wise.

So very wise.

I got as cuddly as a hornet.

And yep, that’s a surefire way to scatter the herd.

‘Cause there’s nothing like dealing with a bowed up Texas woman in a horn-tossing mood baking an Apple Pudding Cake.

Just so you know, as my horns were holding up my halo and the Apple Pudding Cake was cooling on the countertop, I eventually came down from my high horse.

After photographing for this tutorial, I devoured the slice with the scoop of ice cream on top.

It was amazing.

Just me, cake and a coffee moment.

No roundup was needed ’cause all eyes were focused on the gate for the ‘all-clear whoop’ and once again, the Apple Pudding Cake mysteriously disappeared.

Hey, don’t look at me…

…all I gotta say is,“Do wut?”

Smoked Chocolate Cake

Smoked Chocolate Cake

Popular in trendy Texas restaurants, this Smoked Chocolate Cake gets rave reviews. A decadent chocolate cake with just a hint of smoke, it’s the perfect accompaniment  paired with smoked meats and foods on the grill.

‘Smoked chocolate?‘  You bet!  And it’s the ‘best darn thing’, EVER.

And yep, it’s true. Texans will smoke anything imaginable. In fact, if it moos, bleats, oinks, swims, gobbles, wobbles, snaps or strikes at a lightning speed, Texans will slap it on the grill.

Now that’s not saying that this gal is a cheering fan of the majority smoking suggestions above, but when you’re a native Texan it’s a given that you gotta give it a taste or maybe two.

If not, you may be the ‘yellow belly on the grill.’ 

Smoked Chocolate Cake

Okay. Its a Texas yarn. We don’t consume our own. Just be cautious when grilling with the natives.

Sure’nuff,  to peak a Texas gal’s interest all you gotta say is the word, ‘smoked’, add the word, ‘chocolate’ and she’ll  be all ready and rarin’ to go…

(and now your thunking has gone sideways)

…to the kitchen to make, ‘Smoked Chocolate Cake.’

To compliment this Smoked Chocolate Cake are two ganache recipes, Smoked Chocolate Raspberry Ganache and Chipotle Chocolate Ganache.

Just take yer pick.

And to honor all Texas gals, both recipes are a wee bit smoky in flavor, one’s a little spicy ‘n the other sweet.

M’mm M’mm Good!

So, pull up a chair and stay awhile! We got ‘cha covered…

…with ganache that is.

And this Smoked Chocolate Cake recipe will lovingly lasso your guests with a trendy and tasteful ending to one spectacular evening.

You own this rodeo.

Now hitch up your boots and watch the YouTube videos.

Yeehaw!
