TWD: Caramel Pecan-Topped Brownie Cake






Miniature bundt cakes made of brownie and topped with caramel and pecan.... Heaven!!

Just some pictures to look at, I'm way too tired too type at the moment: more info will follow tomorrow!! Recipe can be found at Wee Treats by Tammy.

Okay, so here's my review... Finally!!
I didn't use peanuts, I still had some pecans lying around in the house and thought that they would work perfectly with the caramel sauce, which they did! I had some problems getting my sauce to the right colour and eventually gave up because I was supposed to visit a friend and wanted to bring these along. The cake was a bit too dry for my taste, but fortunately the caramel sauce took care of that!

Overall: I would definetely make this again, but probably take the cake out of the oven a bit earlier. Dad's verdict: 8,5 out of 10.

Oh -- I LOVE your mini bundt cakes! So cute! I think I am going to go mini next time. The huge cakes just don't seem to work for me. Great job, and nice pictures!

I was going to use my silicon mini-bundt "pan" but decided not to because all the peanuts would be in the center. Now that I've seen yours, I'm regretting that decision.

Looks great!

The minis are the perfect way to make this cake. Next time I will do the same. The trouble with the large flat one is the by the next day the topping is half off.
Great job!

Aww this cake looks so cute as a mini! My father tasted my cake and told me that I should try out pecans instead of peanuts next time- I bet the taste was wonderful! Thanks for visiting my blog!

I like the minis, and I LOVE the pecans. I wish I had used those. I'm not a huge peanut fan. Your photos are just gorgeous.

Great idea to make mini cakes. If you eat one a day, you'll keep the doctor away.

I also thought the cake was dry. Try a recipe for Black Magic Cake.
