Teatime in Narnia: Mr. Tumnus' Burnt Sugar Cake

rainymuffins | Nov 23, 201805:52 PM    

My treat this week was a step into the wardrobe. C.S. Lewis has been a favorite of mine since childhood, and I have always wished I could find myself in the middle of a wintry wood and bump into Mr. Tumnus with an armful of packages. Then he'd invite me to a scrumptious tea by a hearth, and fill my soul with tea cakes and magical tales.

I found this recipe for Mr. Tumnus' Burnt Sugar cake and there was no question that I had to try it. The link to the recipe is attached to this post.

I topped the cake with my own creative twists, specifically the cherries and the nuts. It's a delicious cake. The burnt sugar really comes through the flavor, it's not overly sweet but rich in flavor. And so moist and decadent!

I will definitely be making this again, probably as cupcakes next time.

Sorry for the long pause in posts! The last couple of weeks I was traveling around England, soaking up all things literary and consuming all things...
