It involves making home-made caramel enriched with not only heavy cream but also cream cheese. I substituted dried cherries for the raisins in the recipe (Dad likes raisins, but neither MinxBro, Mr Minx, nor the Minx herself is very fond of the cucaracha-esque nasties), and because MinxBro has very specific nut allergies, I used a combination of chopped hazelnuts and almond slivers in place of the walnuts.
It was gooooood. The cake is moist and airy, the caramel is rich and gooey, and with a leetle beet of vanilla ice cream, it's a perfect dessert.
That is a GORGEOUS cake! It also sounds delicious. Yum! (And happy birthday to your dad too!)
That looks delicious and I love pumpkin anything. I share your dad's birthday as well. Happy Birthday to him. I'm going to make this for myself (I'll share, of course). Happy birthday to me.
Something like that might be a great alternative to pumpkin pie! For a lighter alternative, what do you think of pumpkin souffle? I may have to do some experimenting.
BTW, happy anniversary to you and Neal. :)
