Brown Velvet Cheesecake

Monday, September 13th, 2010

I tried to do science…

Cake science!

Goal: Layer cake of red velvet and cheesecake. Not frosted together, but actually one cake.

Hypothesis: Bake red velvet layer, then dump cheesecake batter over it and rebake.

Results: Fail. Cheesecake is tasty, bottom cake layer tastes a little odd (I guess that’s what happens when you bake red velvet for 90 minutes!)

Follow up: Some theories — Partially bake red velvet, then add on the cheesecake layer. Layer the batters, see what happens.

Lunch!

Lunch today — giant sandwich (didn’t quite fit in my mouth) of home grown tomatoes, basil, sprouts and store-bought bread, cilantro pesto and mozzarella. Yum! A little olive oil on the bread (or maybe aioli?) would have been ideal though.

I’m so excited that my tomatoes are finally ripening!

Testing!

Hello world! Here’s a test post from my iPhone — written with the iPhone wordpress app!

Also, here is a picture of the tasty fried chicken catfish poboy I had for lunch. Louisiana Territory stops near my office every couple weeks, but this is my first time and I’ll be going back.
