Today is a fabulous day. I get to share a fantastic recipe with you as well as a fantastic person AND give away three copies of her new book. Fab-u-lous.
The Pioneer Woman has a new book out called A Year of Holidays. I have to tell you, its my favorite book yet. I was moved to tears when I read page 87. Please, if you dont win a copy, go and buy it and tell me that you arent moved by it. (those that know me best will understand why its so special to me!) Not only does she get me with some tear jerkin’ emotion throughout the book, but she makes me laugh too!
This whole book just makes me happy. Its a perfect package. And I really, really want you to have one.
But first, this cake!
Ree shares a Dr. Pepper cupcake in the book and I adapted it into a cake version. I have to tell you, this cake is seriously like nothing I have ever made before. The ingredients and technique were new to me, which is not something I often say about cakes!
I had omitted some ingredients because I simply didnt have them on hand, so if you want to try this cake in its original glory, be sure to check out Ree’s version in her book. While I thought this cake and frosting was amazing as is, I have a feeling the ingredients that I left out would have undoubtedly added awesomeness. Pay close attention to her original frosting recipe too… I must make it exactly as she specify’s next time!!
Would you like to win a SIGNED copy? Simply tell me in a comment, have you ever made anything from The Pioneer Woman’s blog or books?
GIVEAWAY CLOSED. WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED.
Some other ladies are also sharing a recipe from The Pioneer Woman!
Apple Cider, Scones, Chili, Brownies, cake… sounds like the perfectly balanced meal to me!
