Fun times

Last night, my friend Julie and I saw the play, “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde at Centerstage.  It was fabulous.  The movie is really great too and I’d highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it!

And in other news, I made this cake, Mexican Monkey Cake on Tuesday night for a school function on Wednesday.  It was easy and delicious and still tasted great today when we finished off the last of it.  The only change I made was to chop up chocolate bars (milk, dark, and unsweetened baking bars) to get the chocolate because I thought I didn’t have any chocolate chips.  I did find some later but I think that in the end, the cake was much improved by the addition of real chocolate – particularly dark!  In case you’re wondering – it’s “Monkey” for the bananas and “Mexican” for the cinnamon/chocolate combo.  Come up with an excuse to make it soon!

    Wow, that looks great!  Do you think I could make it either in 2 cake pans or as cup cakes?  (I don’t have an 8×8.)  Also, I’ve started baking for the cafe and this may be a fun one to try for that.  Makes me hungry…

    @jjandlj – I think it would be yummy cupcake! (If a little tedious to make because the struesel is in the middle – or you could just put it on the top if they’re cupcakes!)
