I figured a gargantuan slice of chocolate cake was in order this morning. You see, this past weekend Scott and I signed a contract to officially add on a breakfast room addition and a screened-in porch to our existing home. This idea has been sloshing around between us for the past two years and to see it finally come to fruition is nothing short of exciting! I’ve posted a few pictures over at my Flickr Account of the original space. Once work begins in a couple weeks, I’ll upload weekly pictorial updates for those interested in following along.
Aside from the need to celebrate in true chocolate style, this cake was also inspired by my new found
addiction knowledge of homemade dulce de leche. A couple weeks back I discovered that if you took a can of sweetened condensed milk, placed it in a large simmering pot of water, and let it sit for about three and a half hours, Blammo! Out came the most delightfully delicious, completely creamy, totally dreamy, caramel sauce.
