Made It #1
Finally everything is back to normal; husband to work, children to school. The days I'm normally off from work, the house is mine and mine alone again. I can clean, bake, crochet, whatever I want without people getting in my way or making a mess of what I just cleaned up.
So this is also the week I can pick up the Made It item on my blog again. I pinned lots of recipes on my Pinterest boards through the years, but never made anything from it, so I set it as a goal to try one recipe per week to reduce the overload.
First one of the year is this Stroopwafel Cake (find the original recipe here), stroopwafel being a dutch treat made of two thin waffles with cane sugar syrup between it.
Instead of the ingredients in the recipe I used an instant cake mix (only add butter, eggs and a bit of milk). I teared the stroopwafels to pieces and mixed half of it through the batter. After baking the cake I put the rest of the waffles on top of the cake and fixed them with sugar cane syrup.
Next week: French Onion Soup!
