I often lament, much to the impatience of those around me, how it’s unfortunate that they don’t carry ketchup chips in the US. As a uniquely Canadian item, you either have to ship it across the border or have visiting relatives and friends fill their luggage with the stuff. Still, I’m craving that salty, savory taste all the damn time.
For those missing the addicting flavor of ketchup-infused grub, this recipe for Heinz Ketchup Cake should hold you over. Think pumpkin spice cake — thanks to the cinnamon and nutmeg — with an extra oomph from the ketchup’s tangy sweetness. If your taste buds are still wary, know that the texture is absolute heaven (thanks to the butter) and that the savory cake pairs gloriously with the cream cheese frosting.
