Hooray for this wonderful group of authors with whom I blog. I'm so proud of all of them!
From Daryl and Avery:
So, as I was going through Grady Spears The Texas Cowboy Kitchen that we received from one of my husband's colleagues while working at ESPN — we get all sorts of SWAG and fun stuff, including cookbooks from golfers — I found a recipe for Dr. Pepper Cake. Dr. Pepper in a recipe? Really? Well, yes. In many of the recipes, in fact. In the stew, the additional sugar, and possibly the fizz, makes the meat incredibly tender!
And in the cake, it adds a whole lot of yum. This is easy. I have made it the normal way and gluten-free. It works both ways! But for me to taste it, well, it's got to be gluten-free. Why the candles you ask? Yes, it's my pals' launch week. But I also made this cake for my stepdaughter's birthday. She loved it. Enjoy!
1 tsp. baking soda
* Note: You can simply use 2 cups of a packaged gluten-free flour mix like Bob's Mill instead of the combo I've devised. I like my combo. Or for you who can eat regularly, use regular flour and don't add xanthan gum!! :)
This is really good with a glass of milk.
July 2013!! It's set in the fictional coastal town of Crystal Cove, California and features Jenna Hart, a "recovering" ad exec who returns home to help her aunt open a culinary bookshop and cafe.
You can order the book HERE.
You can follow and "like"and chat with my alter ego Avery Aames the same way: Facebook and Twitter.
