TWD - Dressy Chocolate Loafcake
I'm back with TWD after a week off while I was hanging out with the superstars of the food and wine industry in Aspen. Just to be completely honest....those superstars didn't exactly invite me to their parties and I may or may not have stalked them at lunch, but whatever. Those are all stories for a different time.
However, one of my resolutions upon coming home from Aspen was to give up sugar (thanks, Art Smith) for a month (we'll see where it goes from there). Which means I didn't actually taste this one. (And just to be clear...the natural sugars in wine do not count.) Hubs gave it a four out of five stars. He said the texture was nice and he actually like the fruit and chocolate combo. We'll have to take his word for it.
I made the mistake of not reading the entire recipe before getting started and soon discovered that I didn't have enough sour cream, so I substituted fat free greek yogurt for the sour cream called for in the cake itself. I decided to splurge on the icing instead. It must have worked out! Oh, and I almost forgot, I made this into three mini cakes so that Mr. B was not forced to eat it all before it went stale.
Check out Amy Ruth Bakes for the recipe. Thanks, Amy Ruth, for this week's pick!
