Up late one night and cannot sleep
I’ve already counted five-hundred sheep.
I grab the remote to watch some TV
Flip through the channels and what do I see?
A lovely young woman making a cake
For Network TV she will show how to bake.
In the middle of frosting her layers of sweet
She looks up in surprise as her eyes meet…
Throwdown with Iron Chef Bobby Flay
Looking for mortals to take down and slay.
The challenge is German Chocolate Cake
With caramel, nuts and coconut flake.
This is no easy task for the judges
Hopefully no one will hold any grudges.
Her filling a secret held close to the vest
His layers a mesh of tastes put to the test.
Sleep no longer a thought in my mind,
As the judges confer and prepare to opine.
The winner is Bobby with frosting ganache
His victim her glory he put the kibosh.
I fell asleep dreaming of chocolaty bliss
Godiva, Belgian and creamy Swiss.
This, of course, is Bobby Flay’s German Chocolate Cake Recipe. It is one of the best cakes I have ever made. I love the way the ganache turned out, rich and glossy. I highly recommend it for a special occasion, but if you don’t want to spend four hours in the kitchen, do not attempt this one.
