One of the things I miss whenever we’re broke is junk food, specifically sweets and salty snacks. I could dig out the deep fryer and make Jay dig up potatoes if I really wanted chips, or I could make my own Cheez-Its, as I did once, long ago. But the easiest thing is to get in the kitchen and bake. So I made a Chocolate Pound Cake with an Amaretto Espresso Glaze.
Moist (I know–I hate that word), rich, just like a chocolate cake should be. I really should stop blaming my thyroid for my inability to lose weight. It’s because I’m always eating stuff like this! But y’know, it’s worth it.
I will say, I didn’t make the glaze thick enough…I was hoping for more of an icing consistency, so there are a few things I might change if/when I make this again. Still, the Amaretto is tasty with the coffee flavoring, and while there might not be enough of it for my liking, it’s good. Powdered sugar dusted over the top would be just as good.
