Instagram: White Chocolate Pound Cake

Today was Thanksgiving dinner day for my Mom’s side of the family.

It. Was. Delicious.

This cake was my favorite dessert. My aunt Rhonda made it and it was mouth watering.

It’s a white chocolate pound cake topped with cherries, grapes, powdered sugar and sprigs of sage and rosemary for garnish.

She also made a sauce to go on top made of raspberries, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and zest.

I’m now going to go lay down and let this food coma subside.

Mountain Dew Cake!

A few months ago, I was given a very special book. This book was a recipe book given to me by my grandmother, which was filled with all of her favorite and most used recipes.

My family is a food-loving family, let’s make no mistake about that, and this recipe book is like a gift from the heavens.

I was flipping through the book last night, seeing one of my favorite things that my mammaw makes and having to wipe the drool from my mouth when I came across something peculiar.

This peculiar something involves this:

And this:

And this:

This cake has to be one of the easiest things in the world to make, and the outcome is literally mouthwatering.

So, basically what you need to do is mix the packet of Jello with the box of yellow cake mix.

Simple enough.

Then add in four eggs, 3/4 cups of vegetable oil, and 12 ounces of Mountain Dew. I chose to use Diet Mountain Dew, because personally, I think it tastes better.

You should have a little something that looks like this:

And then this fizzy goodness:

Then you just have to whisk the heck out of it.

Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for 40-50 minutes on 375 degrees, or until you can insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake and it comes out clean.

Once the cake is done, take it out and before it cools too much, make a glaze out of:

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup Mountain Dew
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 cup – 1 1/2 cups of powder sugar

Pour the glaze over the cake, while it’s still in the pan, and allow to cool. The glaze will thicken and soak into the cake and just become heavenly.

Why isn’t there pictures of this, you may ask yourself? Well, because I’m a goober and forgot to take pictures of it….and that’s just what goobers do.

Here is the mouth watering, drool inducing, smack-yo-mama delicious results.
