yeah, I know it is late but here my Cince de Mayo food adventures!!!!
First: Tequila gummi bears. Start out with gummi bears & more or less a whole bottle of tequila. Cover & refrigerate for 3-5 days. They turn into a chewy yummy treat!!! Did I mention they get you shitty????!!!!
Ingredients for my churro cake. I do not have the finished product photo :-( and the cake is long eaten. If you can't tell, I used a boxed cake mix. Baking is not my strongpoint & it could be but I'm too lazy at the present to make that effort. Soooo I am a great cake mix doctor! I started with a french vanilla cake mix but yellow, white, spice, chocolate or whatever you prefer would probably be good. I think chocolate would be good because in Mexican cuisine cinnamon & chocolate are paired together a lot.....mmmm mental note to do that!
To make it healthier/low fat, I did make some substitutions! Instead of oil, I used Nonfat Plain Yogurt. Vanilla would be fine. I used egg whites instead of regular eggs. I only eat egg whites anyway, so there is no point to ever make a special trip for eggs, too. Keep in mind that using egg whites & yogurt make the batter more liquidy, so add the yogurt last & in smaller doses.***The only place that I added more calories was substituting the water for FF evaporated milk*** The lady in Wal-mart said this makes a moister cake (probably not FF) so I had to try it.....kind of leche.....
I also added some cinnamon. And by some I mean A LOT!!!! I want to taste this cinnamon because it needed to be like a churro. As long as you don't get to big red flavor you're good! I added a splash of vanilla & a sprinkle of chili powder for good measure. Mix all. Put in 2 cake pans & bake according to package.....I can't remember the temp or time but I do know it took longer than normal. My oven is also slow to heat up!
I frosted with a light cream cheese cinnamon frosting. Cream cheese frosting & I are enemies: I don't like using full fat cream cheese + butter, light doesn't always like to stay in frosting form. It turns into a sloopy mess, but damn is it delicious!
