Do you need a recipe for leftover cake batter?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I usually keep a stash of cake batters in the freezer and find it quite handy.  For example, if someone wants to do a cake testing for a future cake I can knock out a few cupcakes without stirring up a complete batch of cake.  It is also handy to thaw and add to batches of fresh cake.  Well, today I found the perfect use for frozen cake batter.  (Other than at the end of a spoon!)  Here is my Chocolate Empanada Recipe.  This is a lot of fun for your family who may have to see you making cakes all the time and not getting a slice.  Enjoy.

 

Chocolate Empanada


Empanada Dough

3 cups flour

¾ cup Cocoa Powder, unsweetened

½ cup sugar

dash of chili powder

1 tsp cinnamon powder

2 sticks butter

2 eggs

4-6 Tbs water or coffee

 

Filling

Leftover FROZEN cake batter. Chocolate is best.


Instructions

  Place dry ingredients in food processor.  Add frozen butter in chunks, then add egg.  Add water/or coffee until it comes together.  Bag and put in fridge for ½ hour at least.


Roll dough with powdered sugar and add spoon of FROZEN cake batter.  For portions, the unfolded empanada should look like an egg. The batter should be the yolk and the dough would be the size of an egg white.

Flip, crimp and put in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Let the empanada cool.  The batter will firm up and continue to "bake" as it cools. Batter will have a molten gooey consistency.

Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Thank you for this suggestion.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."
