It’s not a cake, but it was absolutely amazing.
Ever made something that caused you to hover over the pan for half an hour, spooning mouthful after mouthful of goodness into your pie hole uncontrollably?
That was this dessert for me. I knew from the get-go this would be a fantastic recipe. It contained cream cheese, pretzels, and strawberries (Meldawg’s motto: fruit makes dessert healthy!) I love all of those things! This recipe was a sure fire way to a kitchen win!
The Strawberry Pretzel Dessert recipe comes from Barbara Kiebel’s blog Culinary Creative. You should keep your eye on this site. This lady must blog from a treadmill because if I ate and drank all the food that she’s making over there … I would be signing up for that TV show about being over six hundred pounds. Non-stop delicious. No joke. Her most recent post was a Smoretini!
Now, I will not kid you when it comes to my confection skills. I am a work in progress. There are times that I am a little disappointed at what happened from preheat to slicing, but there are also times that I am completely amazed about what happened. The latter occurred with this recipe.
I was following the directions step-by-step and somehow was distracted by the method. I was so zoned in on what I needed to do that I had no idea what I was whipping up in the Kitchen Aid. As the paddle went to town, the ingredients revealed themselves in a new magical form.
“Holy shit. I just made homemade whipped cream! Honey!” I ran for the living room completely astonished by the fluffy white goodness that had appeared! “Homemade whipped cream!”
Lucky for us, the beau is tired and didn’t give me the ‘but it’s not cake’ riot when I asked for a rating. He gave the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert an eight out of ten.
