I made an AWESOME new recipe this week for my office Christmas party potluck. I was in charge of dessert, and I chose to make a recipe from Emeril – Buttermilk Spice Cake with Fresh Apple Puree and and Roasted Walnut Cream Cheese. This recipe is a little labor intensive, but I actually appreciated it this time as it gave me a break from finishing up my finals for class. The cake was extremely moist and fluffy and the apple puree gave a good contrast from the spice as the filling. It would also work to frost in between the layers if the apple puree is unwanted. I love cream cheese icing, and this was a basic recipe that I will keep for other types of cakes as well. One note on the frosting: I had to double the recipe to have enough, but I frosted the cake and also decorated the top, which added additional icing. Overall, this recipe was excellent and I will keep it for the future. I may even make it for a family Christmas party this Saturday, it was such a big hit with my office.
