|Inside-Out Chocolate Cake, March 2000|
Well I love it when people enjoy my food but with about six hours of labor that goes into this cake, I do not make it very often. I've learned over the years to cut the process up into two days by baking the cake layers the day before (then freeze them) and toasting the coconut/pecans for the filling - also the day before. I began working on this yesterday afternoon so I could bring this cake to my In-Law's to serve in honor of Father's Day (my father-n-law is pretty cool and he loves chocolate). Just for fun I thought I would share with you some of the steps:
|Melted Butter + Chocolate Chips + Corn Syrup|
|= Chocolate Glaze...oh so gooooood.|
|Condensed Milk after cooking in water bath for 90 minutes.|
|Cooked Condensed Milk + Toasted Coconut/Pecans|
|Filling sandwiched between layers of chocolate cake.|
|I'm getting there...about five hours in at this point.
|Enrobing the cake with the Chocolate Glaze.|
|Cake is ready for plating.
|Crowd devours about half and I leave the rest for the FIL.
My own father was not left out of the Father's Day festivities as my brother Scott and I took him out to dinner and enjoyed a great meal with a lot of laughter.
