This rich Kentucky Butter Cake is is drenched with a sweetened butter sauce and quite frankly very hard to resist.
Happy Wednesday, Folks! Have you entered into my 3rd Blogiversary Giveaway yet? Do that here first!!! Ok…NOW you can read ahead! 🙂
Hubby and I frequent a popular seafood and steak joint, Ocean Prime where we enjoy one of the finest prepared Chilean Sea Bass dishes EVER. We honestly cannot dine here without at least one of us ordering it. It’s like BUTTA. By the way, if you’re looking to prepare this velvety fish, be sure to try my Chilean Sea Bass en Papillote. So yum!!!
We also enjoy their fabulous Warm Butter Cake that’s certainly fashioned by the Kentucky Butter Cake original. It’s covered in a delicious raspberry sauce, fresh berries and ice cream. We absolutely love it so I decided to recreate my own version of this yummy dessert. I kept it simple by using a box cake mix. This rich Kentucky Butter Cake gets it’s name from poking holes into a warm cake fresh out of the oven and pouring a sweetened butter sauce all over so that it seeps deep into the cake. YOU WILL LOVE IT as it got rave reviews by all!!!
Did you know that the love of God is so RICH in mercy. His greatest gift to us was His Son, Jesus. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) – Ephesians 2:4-5 (KJV). Having received this love, we are expected to share it with others. I make a conscious effort to evaluate my love walk daily. How about you? Have a blessed Resurrection Day, guys!!! Say Grace and enjoy!!
