It's TINY!!! If I open the dishwasher and the oven at the same time, it takes up the entire kitchen! But I will still try to create inexpensive masterpieces here, because it's in my nature to do so. The lighting is awful, and there's no counter space or drawer space or cupboard space, but I'll just have to do my best.
Since I've been busy with unpacking and such, I haven't really been cooking or baking anything lately. So here's a recipe I've been planning to put up for a while - the delicious glaze that I used for my birthday cake. I turned the big 25 on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, and am only just getting around to posting this. But that's okay, because I don't have anything else to post - the only thing I've been doing in my new
This delicious glaze (based on this recipe) includes only four ingredients. It was fast and easy, and so creamy and yummy! It was perfect for my birthday cake - a simple chocolate cake mix baked in a bundt pan.
Chocolate Butterscotch Glaze for Bundt Cakes
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk and chips. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Do not allow it to bubble. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Cool slightly before drizzling over a cake. If you want to make this ahead, it can be cooled and reheated in the microwave.
You can substitute other flavored chips for the butterscotch - peanut butter, cherry, or cinnamon would be delicious too!
We ate the cake topped with whipped cream, and an extra spoonful of glaze. Yum.....
