One year seems to have flown by, and in another sense it feels as if I've been blogging about sweet confections for... well, forever! One might say that it's easy to savor life when you measure your year in desserts.
I knew that the Sprinkle Bakes birthday cake could be no less than sprinkle encrusted. It's even sprinkled on the inside! For several years I've requested a Funfetti cake for my birthday, but now I've worked out a recipe for a scratch made version. It is made with buttermilk, so it's extra moist and not overly sweet - but you couldn't tell from looking at it. It's a visual sugar rush!
"A casserole made for special occasions or year round use. The perfect size for baking potatoes or soufflés. Enameled cast iron heats quickly and retains heat beautifully. Limited lifetime warranty."
* Can be used in the oven or on the stovetop
*Enameled cast iron efficiently conducts and retains heat
*Heavy, tight-fitting lid; knob on lid is ovenproof to 450 degrees F
*Holds 2 quarts
Also, 12 of you will get a special baked treat delivered to your doorstep! I wish I could tell you exactly what it is, but I will say that the recipe comes from my baking book that is due out next fall. So, consider it a sneak peek at things to come!
