This time, the Club Baked selection was hosted by Julie of Little Bit of Everything and we baked Sunday Night Cake. My husband Dave teased me because I was supposedly being conformist by actually baking the cake on a Sunday night. (I was not in the mood for such teasing and told him that because of his sarcasm, he wasn't getting any cake!)
Sunday Night Cake is a pretty simple cake lightly flavored with cinnamon, topped with a pudding-like chocolate frosting. The cake is very simple to make; the frosting requires a little more work, but the end result is a wonderful cake that's perfect for family dinners, potlucks, etc.
After mixing the cake ingredients together, I had a wonderful, smooth and silky batter. The scent reminded me a lot of oatmeal cookie dough, probably because of the cinnamon.
I filled my square cake pan with batter. (Oops, looks like I got a little bit on the island!)
While the cake was baking in the oven, the kitchen was filled with a wonderful aroma, which was soon overpowered by the chocolate aroma when I made the frosting, which begins similar to a pudding cooked over the stove, then gets whipped with a mixer and butter is added to it. I probably whipped my frosting a little longer than needed, because I wanted a lighter, less pudding-like frosting.
