    Default leftover chocolate cake


    I made a loaf cake last night and left out the yogurt. It's fine, but
    it's not what I want so I was thinking about making bread pudding only
    with cake. I looked it up and the caution was that cake is too tender
    for that, but I'm not getting why. I'm okay if the chunks disappear.
    I don't want to make trifle - I can't think of what to do.

    I have lots of strawberries.... any ideas? I want something
    uncomplicated.

    just make enough eggs and milk to dampen it and try that, it might b too
    soft but its wortha a shot, or put it in the freezer until you get some
    other bread like substances to go with it, Lee

    I'm thinking it is chocolate-- How about breaking it up and folding
    it into a simple mousse?

    I'm thinking: chunks of chocolate cake, sliced strawberries and something
    white and creamy. Perhaps cream cheese with a little milk, sugar and
    vanilla? Just in the general direction of a 'trifle'. If that doesn't
    appeal to you, send it to me. Nothing better than chocolate and
    strawberries. I had to smile at your leaving out the yogurt. Waaaay too
    many times I've melted butter in the M/W for something and discovered the
    butter much too late. My worst left out I guess was the time we left out
    the noodles in the lasagna. That turned out okay. Polly

    I cut up the strawberries and macerated them so there was a syrup and
    spooned them over slices of cake. I still have lots of cake left to
    figure out what else to do with it though. Ice cream appeals, I've
    wanted to make some anyway... but I need to empty out part of the
    freezer first so I can freeze the bowl. However, I think I have way
    too much cake - so I need to figure out what *else* to do with the
    rest of it.

    I'm still wondering what the problem is with chocolate "bread" pudding
    made with cake cubes because I wouldn't care if it turned out smooth.
    IMO, the worst it could be is souffle-like. I may try making it
    anyway.

    bring it in to work. People we work with are savages and have no idea about
    food. They will wolf down anything.

    I know and love that about co-workers. It's the classic "anything I
    didn't make tastes fantastic" syndrome.

    Whip cream cheese into cream cheese frosting, however you like to do it.
    Slice the loaf lengthwise into 3 layers. Spread one layer with cream cheese
    frosting, add sliced strawberries, continue with two more layers. Wrap in
    waxed paper and chill. Slice into striped slices and call them "Duomo do
    Siena".

    Is the cake too tender to slice longways and spread with softened ice
    cream and roll up into
    a cake roll? I remember cake rolls, it was one of my favorites as a
    kid. Ice cream sandwiches,, too....

    Oh, yum. I like that. Sounds like a party cake.
