Anyone else hungry for sweets?
I could eat a whole cake right now… that fact brought about this post!
Last Sat I was suppose to take something to (yet another) reunion and I was hungry for “Emma’s cake”, as we call it. My Aunt Emma had made it the first time we tasted it and hence the name.
Now I don’t like chocolate as a rule, but this cake is chocolate and I WILL eat it. I make it with a German Choc cake mix so it’s not quite as rich as some of you might like it. Use whatever kind of Chocolate you like, but with this one, German Chocolate is very good.
Mix a cake mix, bake it in 2 round pans.
Pretty simple. Once they are cooled, cut them each in half so that you will have 4 layers.
Mix 1 cup of milk with a 1/2 cup Butter Pecan pudding mix.
(1/2 C pudding equals a package you would buy at walmart or where ever)
Once that has set up a little, stir in 1 box of Cool Whip. Whip it up real good!
Now for the best part…
1/2 C. Butter
1 C. Sourcream
1 1/2 C. packed Brown Sugar
Mix together and cook until it’s almost ready to boil. Don’t let it boil, just almost.
Cool, and then right before you’re ready to eat it, pour that yummy stuff all over the cake.
It will run everywhere, so wait till your ready to eat. I learned the hard way.
Then proceed to eat half the cake yourself!
And thank Emma when your done. 🙂
