Recipe Thursday: A Twofer!

Hello dear Reader! Just for you today I am offering up not one but two recipes. The first one is from Ree over at the Pioneer Woman and it is her Tres Leches cake. I made this cake and it was wonderfully yummy and sweet and good and sweet and just perfection folks. Perfection.

I did tweak her recipe in one way and that is when it came to the pouring of the milks. Yes go ahead and dock the cake like she says to but in the name of all things sweet: leave the cake in the pan and use ALL of the milk. This way even the edges of the cake will soak up the milky goodness and you won't get crusty edges like she did. When I managed the bakery we always left the cakes in the pans when we soaked them in the milk mixture and I highly recommend using that technique versus what she says.

Onward to our second recipe: Dr. Pepper Baked Beans

I procured this recipe from one of the ladies at work after she made these beans for one of our luncheons. Words can't describe their beany goodness.

The cast:

28 ounce can of pork n beans (or pork AND beans if you are from the North)
1 onion, chopped fine
1 green pepper, chopped fine
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, chopped fine - just checking to see if you were paying attention
1/3 cup Dr. Pepper
1/8 tsp. ground cloves

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Drain the liquid from the beans and toss out the pork globual, ok, you can keep it in if you like but yuk. Pour into a baking dish and gently mix in onion and green pepper. Combine sugar, Dr. Pepper and cloves in a seperate bowl until sugar is dissolved. Pour over bean mixture and bake covered for 30 minutes.
