Here's something you don't often see together - Werewolves and White Chocolate Cake. Welcome to Kryssie Fortune


Sweet Treats that Werewolves Love – White Chocolate Cake

HI, Kryssie Fortune here. Thanks to Jane for letting me lose on her blog.

 Ellie Padget, heroine of my latest book, To Wed a Werewolf, has spent two years cooking for the Lykae army. She’s given me a selection of her recipes to share with my friends.

Ellie had matured into a strong-minded woman who carried herself tall as though she mattered. She’d have liked her eyes better if they didn’t glow in the dark. A would-be Lykae lover once compared them to the vibrant green of the Mediterranean Sea. She hadn’t believed him, but his smooth talking got him a huge slice of her cake.

Here’s her White Chocolate Cake recipe

Ingredients:

2 (4 oz.) white chocolate baking bars

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

2 1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

10 T. butter, softened

1 1/3 c. granulated sugar

4 eggs

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/4 c. milk

White Chocolate Buttercream frosting {see recipe below}


Grease and flour 9-inch round 
cake pans {2 for a 2-layer cake or 3 for a 3-layer cake}; line bottoms of pans with parchment. Set aside
Break or chop 
chocolate into small pieces and place in a microwaveable bowl. Heat in the microwave at 50% power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until melted and smooth, stirring after every 30 seconds. {Do not over heat.}

Cool for 10 minutes.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
With an electric mixer, beat butter at medium speed for 30 seconds. Slowly add sugar and beat until well combined. Reduce to low speed and add 
eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and mix in.

With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture and milk, mixing until just combined. Gently stir in white chocolate.

Pour batter into prepared cake pans, dividing evenly. Bake at 350 degrees - 20 minutes for 3 layers or 30 minutes for 2 layers, using a toothpick inserted in the centre to test for doneness. Cake is done when toothpick comes out clean. Do not over bake.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove cake layers from pan and place on wire rack to cool completely.
Allow to cool. Sandwich the layers together using approximately 1 cup of the frosting between layers.


Happy Baking!

To Mate a Werewolf

Blurb

The scars on Ellie Padget’s cheek are a constant reminder of the times she tried to escape from sexual slavery. Two years ago, Joel—alpha in waiting of the Tundra-Tough pack—led the rescue party that freed her. She’s loved him ever since.

Their relationship finally explodes into steaming sex, but he offers to pay her off. She walks away with her head high and her heart shattered. When she learns of a plot to destroy Joel and his pack, her only option is return to his side and warn him.

Joel has to fight to retain the pack that should be his by right, and no one can leave until the pack has a new alpha. He’s horrified when Ellie turns up on the night he’s to meet the woman he’s agreed to marry but never met. She’s stuck there until he claims his birthright. Finally, he realizes Ellie’s his true mate. Now he has to choose between his arranged marriage, and the one woman he truly loves. Will he choose with his head or his heart?

To Mate a Werewolf is a stand alone story within the Scattered Siblings series.

  2. Welcome, Kryssie. How about the white chocolate cake with regular brown chocolate frosting? Put the bug in Ellie's ear about that.
