hey readers.. guess what! i'm done with all my projects, there's only one thing left for me, my exams. but fortunately, i managed to make 4 different desserts this month. prepare for it! i've posted a bougatsa for you last week and this week is pound cake's turn. hurray!
i got this recipe from Wendy in Table for 2.... or more. she invented this recipe and call it Sweetened Condensed Milk Pound Cake. the reason is simple, it is made from sweetened condensed milk. i grew up as a big fan of sweetened condensed milk, chocolate and vanilla, both has their own place in my heart. they always smell so good and always make everything sweeter. i have never imagined on using it in a pound cake until i saw Wendy's recipe. then i started to think, maybe they will match perfectly. too bad, it isn't taste that fantastic. i think i might need to add extra sauce to pour on it, or maybe adding some chocolate chips in the batter. the cake just taste so plain and boring for me because i ate it without any complementary dish. however, eating this with a cup of coffee would be a perfect way to savor this cake, just like wendy did.
out of this cake topic, i am planning my self on joining The Daring Bakers, but somehow feels a little intimidated. i am feeling quite nervous with the recipes they usually make as a challenge. it feels too complicated and i am not dared enough to make it. haha. i should join it though, but not today nor tomorrow. i think maybe next month or next two month or three. well just wait and see.. hahaha. for this moment, let's be simple and enjoy this pound cake.. :)
