Sweets Make the Sweetest Memories (June 21 – June 27)

Summer indulgences include walking into a full-service bakery, as the combined baking aromas of butter, sugar, and eggs fill the air. These distinct aromas can only mean pleasureful treats. One of my favorite treats is German Chocolate Cake. Its distinctive and iconic icing makes it uniquely a classic. This is the recipe that has been passed down in my family. German Chocolate Cake Icing: 1 – 12 oz. can of evaporated milk; 1 cup of sugar; 2 pre-beaten egg yolks; ½ cup of butter; and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Cook these ingredients and stir over a medium flame until thick – about 12 minutes. When cooked, add 1 ½ cups of coconut and 1 cup of chopped pecans. Spread over a baked chocolate flavored cake or chocolate flavored cupcakes. © Kelly McBride Loft
