mother's day means chocolate.

Devil's Food Cake
2 cup flour
a little more than 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1& 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Sift together the ingredients listed above.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup SUPA PACKED brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
With an electric mixer, whisk the above listed ingredients until fluffy.
(in a separate bowl than dry ingredients)
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Stir into wet ingredient bowl.
3/4 lukewarm water
1/2 cup of buttermilk
Alternate between adding the water, milk, and flour mix to the wet ingredient bowl, beating on low speed.

At 350 degrees bake the batter in two medium sized round cake pans for about 35min.

Caramel Filling
1 bag of soft caramel candies
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
In a small sauce pan bring the cream to a simmer at medium/high heat and stir in the caramel, continuously stir and add caramel until the consistency is drippy but thick.
Spread evenly between the two cakes and layer.

Ghirardelli Glaze
16 oz dark chocolate ghirardelli baking chocolates
2 cups heavy cream
a pinch of salt
1 tbsp light corn syrup

Bring all ingredients except the chocolate to a simmer at med/high heat and remove from heat. Add chocolate and let cool to room temp, use immediately.

And then my moms favorite candy is dark chocolate milky ways, so I just froze two and broke them up and used them for the topping :-)


Proverbs 31:29-30

29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
