Just Dessert Blog Event - Secret Cravings Publishing

I've got something for a two different kinds of "sweet tooth", a "bite" from
 my paranormal romance and a recipe for my Pounded Cake.
Enjoy :-[ & Fang You
 
 
My First Release is March 21, 2013
Andromeda
 
 
 
She’s a fortune telling psychic who also happens to be a 400 year old virgin vampire. She hides what she is and lives as a human. He is destined to be her mate, but a vision shows he's also destined to die in her arms because of what she is. Believing he can change their fate, this mortal man chooses to be with this enchanting woman. But just when things heat up between the two, her maker comes back for her to possess her body and own her very soul. And by fighting for her mortal man, she enrages her vampire stalker. Both mortal and maker fight for the power in her touch, but only one man can have her body. Will the love of mortal and vampire be enough to survive the coming battle?


 
One lucky person will get a Wench Writer small tote bag from yours truly.
Send me a line about something fiendishly delicious and I'll post my winner this weekend.
Good luck and may your visions be truly wicked ;-)
 
 
 

 
(BTW-it's named this because I made these by hand because I didn't have a mixer. My hubby loved them even more, as I had to "pound" the cream cheese mixture with a wooden spoon to make his favorite treat)
 
 
My "Pounded Cake" Recipe
 
 
1 1/2 cups melted butter           1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
3 cups sugar          1 3/4 cups eggs          1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla          1/4 tsp almond extract
3 cups all ourpose flour          1 tsp baking powder
 
 
Sift flour/salt/baking powder together. Add remaining ingredients slowly, while beating. Place in a buttered and floured bundt pan. Spread mix evenly and tap the dish a couple of times on the counter (or stovetop) to remove any bubbles before placing in a 325 degree pre-heated oven. Cook for approx. 1.5 hours, check with a toothpick or screwer every 15 min after 1 hr mark. At diff altitudes and in diff ovens, it can cook faster than in my old oven. Then cool for 30 min before inverting and slicing. This can be frozen, if you want to save slices for a treat one night. I do:-)

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Have you tried a thin layer of butter and then toasting it? It sounds crazy but I have to say it's even better when served that way. I know, very Paula Deen of me ;-)

    1. Yes, I was tired afterward. It's a great workout for the arms. I never mentioned that after hearing the tale of the Pounded Cake, my high school best friend bought me a mixer for my Christmas/birthday gift. I think there was pitty in her eyes. :-)

  16. Wow, now that's a hook: "a fortune telling psychic who also happens to be a 400 year old virgin vampire." Okay,something fiendishly delicious. Pumpkin cheesecake with bourbon whipped topping...on second thought, maybe toss the cheesecake and add a hot cowboy.
