Guys, I hope you all can forgive me for hoarding this recipe for such a long period of time.
It is way a long period of time if Brownie a la Mode Layer Cake is what we’re talking about.
Vanilla-Macadamia Nut Ice-cream sandwiched between two layers of fudgy chocolaty brownie and topped with the most luscious ganache you’ll ever put into your mouth. How could you not be drooling all over your keyboard by now?
I’m sure you all are, don’t deny it.
I mean, I feel like crying because there’s not any of it left. Not a single crumb. It lasted mere seconds in the birthday table, and now I do regret having shared it with my family.
I’m not evil, I’m just a layer cake lover.
But this guys, was the best cake I’ve ever made. Mum couldn’t have wished for a better birthday present (or so she said!). Lucky her, she got to have the biggest slice. If I could go back in time, I would make this for my brithday so as to be me who has the biggest one hehe!
Oh, the awesomeness of this. I know I do say it in pretty much every post I write, but this cake was the best one I’ve ever made *pinky promise*, I’m not lying here. And yes, I know it’s on the chilly side right now and that this cake qualifies as ice-cream… but c’mon, you can always eat it in front of a fireplace, buried under fluffy blankets and with a mug of hot coffe by your side. Now, that’s a perfect Sunday plan, right?
One thing I’d like to remind you is that you should use storebought ice-cream. Yes, yes, I know it’s not as tasty as homemade. And probably not quite as healthy, because of all those additives and thickeners they put into the storebought stuff. But, it’s those thickeners which allow the ice-cream to keep its form for longer, so it doesn’t melt before you get to eat it. If you want a good-looking cake, choose storebought this time. The deliciousness of the cake is worth putting every single one of those thickeners into your mouth. Moderation is the key, you know.
Other than that, the cake is pretty easy to make, but do read all the instructions before you attempt to assemble it, ok?
Cake heaven, here we go!
Oh, and I got the inspiration from La Receta de la Felicidad. You guys look at how beautiful her cake turned out!
Have a nice week, guys! And let’s hope I get to make it trough Friday… this week is being a really exhausting one!
