This is some kind of good.......


And as you can tell from the above photo, I am not, I repeat not, a photographer.
This is what I call a caramel nut cake.
I made this today for lunch at my aunt's house. And man it is delicious with a glass of cold milk.
It's a german chocolate cake (baked according to its directions) 7 oz of melted caramels drizzled on a cool cake and pecans finely chopped and sifted onto the caramel while it is still hot.
I wish I had smell-a-blog. It's just too easy and too tasty. Ya'll have a good day.

Oh my, that looks so good! I'm going to have to give it a try. I'm popping over from SITS - you have a great blog here!

Hmm... a smell blog. What an interesting idea - I hadn't thought of that, but it could be useful!

I absolutely love easy and tasty. It looks fabulous and since I am on a diet, I will pretend that I am smelling and eating it. :)

Astrid said...

Actually- it's a good thing blogs don't come with smells. Otherwise my "diet" would fly right out the window!

You're right, the photo isn't doing it justice, judging by your description :)

Brandy said...

I don't care about how the picture looks as long as it tastes good. And this sounds delicious.

Tiffany said...

That sounds so sweet and rich. My mom would say a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be perfect to cut the richness. Yum!

Cathy said...

German chocolate cake and caramel? Good night, woman, are you trying to kill me?!

Jeanne said...

Wait a minute, chick -- isn't there something in the bible about not putting temptation in the way of your brother (or sister)?

That looks way to delicious -- and way too easy!

Debbie Y. said...

You tempt me, but I cannot be tempted. I have to be good. But it looks so good. I will resist, I have to resist!

WOW, sounds like a great recipe and one that people would love to try.

Michelle said...

Mmmmm, that looks good! In fact, that looked so good I had to go get myself a little bowl of Dulce de Leche ice cream!

Mmmm, caramel. Whenever I order a thickshake or sundae, it's got to be caramel. And pecans too! My favourite nut.
