This is a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake. The cake itself is a brown sugar buttermilk cake, topped with rich white chocolate frosting and salty chopped macadamia nuts. Salty, sweet and PRETTY!
Sometimes you just need a cake in your life.
My husband is a huge white chocolate macadamia nut guy.
I never used to like nuts in my desserts…and I guess still am not COMPLETELY on board…but I have broadened my horizons in my old age.
And old people always like nuts in their desserts. It’s a fact.
So that brings me to now. Cake.
But don’t be scared…macadamia nuts are like the most girlie nuts out there. Even more than pistachios.
They’re like nuts for lightweights…not to be confused with geriatric-walnutty nuts.
Macadamia nuts are fresh and clean and pretty. They’re the most popular nut at the nut high school.
Ok, even if you aren’t, just leave off the dang nuts. It’s fine. But you’ll regret it, because the saltiness of the nuts on top the white chocolate frosting is major.
ANNNND the cake itself is a brown sugar buttermilk cake that totally rules.
Try it. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake…
Like I said, the cake itself is a brown sugar buttermilk cake. It;s super good.
I actually buy dry buttermilk and keep it in the fridge. It’s handy because I never have fresh buttermilk on hand.
Pour your batter into a greased 9×13…
When your cake is done it will look like this…
Meanwhile make your frosting.
Powdered sugar, of course…oh and butter. Duh.
Melted white chocolate…
Plop that frosting all up on there…
And just zhush it around…
Then grab some super salty macadamia nuts. And chop ‘em up.
Add those all over the top…
I even got fancy and made a few white chocolate curls…and then quit because I was cussing too much. Those things are annoying.
Instead of curls sprinkle some white chocolate chips on top. Less cussing involved.
Then immediately eat.
I mean, you don’t HAVE to eat immediately, but you probably want to. And I won’t deny you that…
So yep! White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake. It’s a good idea!
