Sometimes I like to live vicariously through my family. I’m on that carb and sweets cutting kick this last month, but that doesn’t mean I want them more than ever! Dreaming of sweets, I wanted to treat the family to something extra special, with a Texas Skillet Cake, and a special flavoring on the topping using International Delight Hazelnut Creamer.
Texas Skillet Cake, is a perfect “Dad can make it” type of dessert. It’s done in a skillet, there’s not an insane amount of cleanup, and its quick, and easy to make. Not to mention how amazingly moist it is!
A Texas Skillet Cake has a decadent chocolate frosting, that is simple to make. For my recipe, I substituted milk with International Delight Hazelnut Coffee Creamer, to add a little more lush texture, on top of to give it a little hazelnut flavoring to really make this something special!
This is fun way for me to break out of the diet and do a little celebrating. First batch is the test on the family (admission: I sampled some.. and it’s amazing..). But in about a month’s time I’ll be making batch number 2 of this Texas Skillet Cake, just for me.
