It’s a new year, which means we bake from a new book! This years Cake Slice Bakers vote went to "The New Way To Cake" by Benjamina Ebuehi. It’s definitely not a book I’m use to baking from. Some of the recipes seem intimidating, not your traditional American baking for sure!
I struggled making my choice this month. I went with the one that was closest to my comfort. I picked to bake the Spiced Sweet Potato Loaf with Cream Cheese. The recipe calls for spices and ingredients I’m familiar with. Caraway seeds are not my favorite, I left them out of the recipe.
I also opted for cupcakes, instead of a loaf pan. The cupcakes turned out delicious! They were dense, in a good way, and were moist and full of flavor. The cream cheese frosting complimented these very well.
