Bacon Brownie Cake

It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a new year. It’s a new life. And I’m feeling sooooo good!!

Happy 2017 to each one of you. I know I’m a day late in wishing you’ll but I’ve had such a crazy December that I just needed yesterday to chill. There’s so much in store for the blog. Going to be posting a lot more healthy dessert recipes because you see it’s time I learned how to keep fit and skinny while I enjoy my desserts.

Also this is my big year. Journalism didn’t excite me much. My love for food just keep growing stronger everyday so yes I’m going to be doing my diploma in Patisserie in a couple of years from now. All those stories will be shared here.

Enough of talking about me. It’s time to start the new year with a kick ass recipe. I have one question for you’ll. Who doesn’t love bacon? I remember the last time I experimented with it for the first time in my Candied Bacon, Apple and Peach Tart, it went viral on social media and the responses were so positive that it got me to work with it again in something I have always had a weakness for- brownies.

They’re so overrated and everybody is stuffing something or the other these days but this cake is pretty special because it has traveled two cities last year- Bombay and Mangalore for friends who love bacon as much as I do. I have to thank god everyday for such supportive people in my life who always give me positive feedback that helps me push myself harder.

I also did the brownie version of this cake for my bake sale recently at A Hundred Hands and they all got sold out. People told me they came running because of the word ‘bacon’ on my poster.

This cake has that gooey, chewy texture that represents the brownie but so much more fun eating it in the form of a cake. The bacon gives it so much flavour and cuts down the sweetness with it’s salty character. Perfect for those who don’t have that big a sweet tooth.

Some people are fed up with all this bacon talk. I sometimes get messages saying ” You don’t have throw bacon into everything you make.”

It may be a fad now but I don’t think the love for bacon can ever die out!
