The update is coming ;0) I'm reworking a part of it that came off all wrong. Until then I thought I'd share a piece of my family's St. Patrick's day tradition...
Surprise...It’s Irish Cake
Pre-heat oven to 350
1 box plain chocolate cake mix (your fav brand I use Pillsbury pudding in the mix)
1 stick of margarine
1 egg slightly beaten
Mix together and press into a 13 inch casserole/cake pan.
1 brick of Cream cheese (I use fat free and it taste the same as full fat to me in this recipe)
16 ounces of Powdered Sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Green food coloring
Beat the egg whites with mixer for at least a minute before adding anything else. Add in the vanilla, softened cream cheese cut in squares and 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Mix on low till sugar is dissolved. Add sugar in a bit at a time and mixing it in till it is dissolved. When it is a creamy yet slightly runny mixture you’ve got it done. Mix in the food coloring and then pour over cake batter.
Put into the preheated oven and back for 40 to 42 minutes. You’ll know its done with the top is brown and it is slightly cracking.
Take out of oven and and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into it. The longer you wait the more set up the topping will be, so if you want a firmer topping let it cool half an hour before cutting in.
Optional: Putting a layer of chocolate chips between the topping and the cake.
Also you can add walnuts to the cake batter to give it a crunch.
Another option is to use different food colorings for different times of year, like a red for Christmas or a pink for valentine’s day.
