Yessa and I had a hankerin’ to do a little baking yesterday, and I suggested she look through Ms. Lindsay’s blog and choose something that looked delicious. Ms. Lindsay is one of Buds’ and my co-workers in the Atlanta office. We had two of her recipes at our New Year’s Eve Celebration, and I felt pretty sure Yessa could find something delicious she would enjoy creating. Plus, Ms. Lindsay’s pictures are scrumptious to look at.
Yessa chose Nutella Red Velvet Poke Cake, and it was a tremendous hit. We’d never baked with nutella before, in fact, I don’t think we’ve ever even had it in the house. (While we were at the grocery store getting nutella, we ran into our neighbor who dressed as Merida for Halloween, and now we know her real name, and I can stop thinking of her as “Merida.” She’s Bailey.)
Oh my holy buckets and stars, folks. This was the best cake we’ve ever eaten, and it isn’t even frosted yet! And I don’t even like cake! It was so warm and moist and gooey. I also believe there will be more nutella baking in our future. Keep those recipes coming, Lindsay!
