Not So Healthy Recipes
|Did you know that “meringue” is not just the white fluffy sweetness on the top of your mama’s pies? Oh no it’s not!
In this 17th episode of “A Jock’s Guide” Cooking Series, you’ll learn that meringues are actually their own sweet little entities! They are super easy to make and this sweet little ditty is going to show you how. BUT ….it wouldn’t be a ‘true’ Jock’s Guide episode without a few fumbles along the way so be sure to watch and learn before you crack open your eggs.
Ok, so call me crazy, but I started this “cake and icing from scratch” adventure at 9pm on the eve of this St. Patrick’s Day. My boycotting of commercial holidays was over. I wanted sugar. I wanted green. I wanted to get lucky. And lucky I got.
I substituted regular milk for almond milk, and I used about 1/3 of a cup less of sugar in the cake batter. Honestly, I don’t think you’d even notice because the icing is so wonderful and sweet, that it really does tie everything together nicely.
Overall, it was a completely painless experience, except for the sore belly part from eating two pieces! Oops.
