|Snickers Birthday Cake|
I can honestly say that this recipe is probably the most unhealthy post I have made to date, but it is so delicious that I had to share it regardless. It is a birthday cake, so obviously it is not something you should eat on a regular basis, but if the love of your life is turning 39 and you happen to have a one pound Snickers bar left over from Christmas, this cake is perfect. Because on your birthday you should be able to eat whatever you want and turning 39 is worth celebrating, as is every age (because the alternative to getting older is... well, not worth celebrating, obviously). So go ahead, make yourself happy, and indulge in this amazing dessert with the people who you love!!
Greg’s Snickers 39th Birthday Cake
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray with cooking spray, and line with waxed paper, three 9-inch round baking pans. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flours, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and the milk alternately, until fully combined and then beat on medium speed of a mixer (or with a whisk by hand) for 2 minutes. Stir in coffee (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks.
