Baby Cakes for a new baby. One of my closest friends just had her second baby saturday, a 10 and a half pound baby boy. Oh my goodness I can’t even imagine. My two seven and a half pounders seem measly by comparison. 🙂
I made these Sunday and took a few to her and her husband at the hospital along with some homemade caramels.
I will first start out by saying my dad LOVED these. I will second that by saying my husband did not. I was on the fence. I am still trying to lose my baby weight and have been choosing my calories very carefully, this was not something that I was willing to neglect my diet for. My dad thought this was a desert that would specifically appeal to an older generation, which he is probably right about.
I pretty much stuck to the recipe to the letter, however I didn’t have a full two cups of molasses so I used honey for half. I am wondering what these would be like, if they were entirely made from honey and no molasses or with maple syrup like someone else mentioned. I used jumbo and regular muffin tins here, set the oven to 300 degrees and cooked them for 30-35 minutes. Ended up just perfect.
These would probably be quite a bit better with the whipped cream or some type of icing on them to cut the intensity, but I just didn’t have the time to get that far. Overall this was just an ‘eh’.
