Yet again, our dessert night will not be this Sunday because we won’t be here. So tonight we, yes all three of us, made Strawberry Cream Puff Cake. I think it’s almost a sin to have a dessert that does not include chocolate as an ingredient. But I’m married to someone who thinks that there is life outside of chocolate and prefers it that way. I would be happy with Duncan Hines brownies for dessert. No ice cream. Just a brownie, or two 🙂 I can’t always make desserts that only I like, because only I eat it, and only I get fat. So I have to balance the chocolate desserts with desserts that I’ll enjoy the day I make it, but never put in my mouth again as long as it sits in my kitchen.
Don’t get me wrong…this dessert was good. I just never ever crave dessert that involves anything cold or fruity…yes, that means I don’t care for ice cream. But I will eat it. My favorite part about this dessert was the strawberries (because I LOVE strawberries) and the cake. The cake had a really smooth, moist texture that would be perfect with some sort of chocolate mousse. Of course, I was thinking of ways to turn this dessert into something chocolaty. I will be making it again because Brent and Lily loved it! But, I think I will leave out the orange zest. Too much citrus for me.
