Red Velvet Brownies

View this post on Instagram A post shared by TMB. (@_christianpaul) I just so happen to feel like experimenting with my brownie recipe and decided to turn them into red velvet brownies. First, I took out some of the cocoa powder from the recipe and subbed in for more flour. This was the perfect start because I didn't want the recipe to have too much chocolate flavor.

Butter Pecan (Sock-It-To-Me) Cake

 This cake was based off of my butter-sponge pound cake recipe. Honestly, this cake was a happy accident. I made the mistake of buying instant pudding powder instead of Jell-O powder and if you know, Jell-O powder absorbs liquid and stays liquid, while instant pudding powder when mixed with liquid INSTANTLY turns into pudding!! I was wrapping my brain trying to figure out how to save this recipe because I added the instant pudding powder to the already whipped egg whites which soon deflated into pudding.
