Frugal Failures- Lava Flop

Rate this Entry
Following my latest lava cake debauchery, I read a post by a fairly new member requesting carrot and cream cheese lava cake. Having never actually tasted one of these, but yearning too since I read the post, I decided to attempt making one.

I simply prepared my favorite carrot cake recipe & set the batter aside. Next I combined 4 oz cream cheese, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 c. powdered sugar until well blended. Then tossed in a handful of chopped walnuts for good measure.

The kids- LOVED them, ate them like they were going out of style. For me, well, lets just say I'll add it to my list o' duds.
