The truth is, this wasn't the first time a cake of mine has gone bad. I'm human, and I really believe that sometimes, if it's not meant to be, it's just not meant to be. So, I tossed it and decided to bake an even better cake. (Just a note, if a recipe goes wrong, I never EVER try to make it a second time. For me, it's just not in the cards for that particular recipe at that particular time...you?)
So, I quickly pulled out my go-to cookbook, Norene Gilletz's, The Food Processor Bible. (Norene is a Canadian cookbook legend- her recipes define the term: "tried & true"). I skimmed the pages and came across exactly what I was looking for: 'best coffee cake'- how could I go wrong?
This chocolate-pecan-crumb cake looks just right for a snowy, slushy day. With a steaming cup of coffee, I can't wait to cut into this one.
Topping: pecans, cocoa, choc chips, brown sugar, cinnamon- yum!
Pull that food processor of yours out of storage and use it for this!
Use what you have to make it work!!
